In case you didn’t realize it, spring time in Breck is the best. We put together a video for you, along with our top 11 reasons why you can’t miss spring in Breckenridge:
11. The Sunshine
300 days of sunshine on average every year. But, who’s counting?
10. Spring skiing attire
It wouldn’t be spring skiing without the warm temperatures and the wacky outfits from bikinis to full-on costumes. You’ll see it all.
9. Slush turns
Ever heard the term mashed potato snow? You will if you visit in the spring. Dig in and get a heaping serving of slush turns and mashed potato snow once the temperatures warm up, esp
8. Park Laps all day
Bring your game. Because everyone else does.
7. Big Dumps
It’s true. March and April are two of the snowiest months of the year. It’s not uncommon to be skiing waist-deep pow one day and slush bumps the next.
6. Powder Turns
It’s true. You can still ski and ride powder in March and April. In fact, a few closing days in Breck’s history have been full-on powder days. Talk about ending the season with a bang.
5. Beer Festivals
The Breck Beer Festival happens every spring. This year (2017), it’ll be held in Main Street Station at the base of Peak 9. Cheers to that.
4. Music around town
The concerts on Peak 8 may be gone, but Breckenridge still rocks — with everything from big names like Donavon Frankenreiter to open mic Mondays.
3. Patio parties
Apres ski is taken to a whole new level in the spring. Find your favorite patio or deck, order a beer or your favorite beverage and enjoy!
2. Parties downtown
The hibernation of winter ends and locals emerge to celebrate the warmer days. Check out the Summit Daily or GoBreck’s events page for details on local gatherings, happenings and parties in town.
