Breckenridge’s high mountain location makes for outstanding spring conditions and one of the longest ski and ride seasons in North America. Chicago photographer Kyle Buckland (find him on Instagram @kbucklandphoto) captured one of spring’s greatest perks — POWDER — in April 2016. Twenty two inches of snow fell over the weekend.

In the past, I’ve spent hours in post trying to create videos like this. As blue skies and sun hit distant mountaintops huge snowflakes continued to fall. Dreamscapes in real life. Such a surreal scene on the way up Mt. Baldy with our guides @abertooth & @jayirwin66 __________ Track: Teams vs Star Slinger __________ #BreckBecause @gobreck #Breckenridge
The snow was coming down during yesterday’s concerts! 7″ inches on the report with a few more on the snow stake since. That puts us over 22″ in the last 48 hours. Another powder day followed by Trombone Shorty this afternoon at the base of Peak 8! 📽: @kbucklandphoto __________ #BreckBecause @gobreck #breckenridge A video posted by Breckenridge Tourism Office (@gobreck) on
