Skiing & Snowboarding

Right in Breckenridge’s backyard you can find some of the best skiing in the country! This is the obvious reason many come to Breckenrdige, and for good reason! We have a superpipe, bowls, huge peaks, terrain parks, ski schools, and more! It’s no wonder “Breck” is such a popular ski destination!


We have over 30 miles of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails. If you want to get off the trails, there are plenty of opportunities for that as well. Perhaps you want to take in some of the historic mining ruins? You can do that too!


Sledding is one of the favorite winter activities of all time for people of all ages! Grab your sled of choice and hit the slopes. We even have areas where you can sled for FREE, so bring the whole family out for a day of fun! Just make sure to dress warm enough!

Winter Biking

Yes, some people really do this! There are so many winter riding options in and around Breckenridge. Whether you decide to stay on the roads or navigate the country terrain, make sure you bring (or rent!) a bike that has great traction in the snow.
