Breckenridge was once a sleepy mining town in the heart of the Rockies, a setting right out of the Old West. A century and a half later it’s known worldwide as a premiere ski and boarding destination, featuring everything from groomed beginner slopes to extreme “high alpine” terrain. But in recent years Breck has become a year-round destination with far more to offer. Welcome to the center of the universe for those seeking an adventure-infused vacation! Imagine fly-fishing the gold medal waters of the Blue River, hiking, biking and mushing by dogsled through a forest of lodgepole pine. You can still pan for gold – and find it – in the surrounding crystal-clear streams and rivers. In the evening head off to the local tavern for a bison burger washed down with a fine local brew. Later, come back to your mountain vacation home to watch the moon loft over Baldy Mountain as you soak your bones in the warm comfort of an outdoor hot tub.
There’s no place like summer in the mountains where the cool dry air is a constant bracing presence. The Tenmile Range offers hiking for everyone – from lazy trails through stands of pine to more technical alpine ascents up the 14,000-foot Quandary Peak. Take the family on a whitewater rafting excursion on the nearby Arkansas, Colorado and Blue Rivers, or explore the area by horseback. Autumn ushers in an otherworldly beauty as aspen glades ripen from yellow to gold to a gold-tinged red. By now the waters of the Blue River have become slow and cold, making the habitat ideal for several species of trout and sockeye salmon – the perfect time for anglers to work their way along the tailwaters of Lake Dillon and the Upper Blue River.
By late autumn, Breck has begun its transformation into a winter wonderland. This iconic ski destination features terrain so varied that it draws skiers and boarders of every skill level from around the world. In recent years, however, Breck has evolved into something more expansive and truly magical. Imagine mushing through the forest on a dogsled pulled by Siberian huskies. Or a sleighride drawn by Belgian draft horses with hot chocolate to keep you and your loved ones warm along the way. Snowcat tours will take you deep into some of Breck’s most extreme terrain, while snowshoeing through the Tenmile Range offers transcendent winter views available only to the true adventurer.
