When speaking with a Breckenridge local, it’s all too common to hear the phrase “I came for the winters but stayed for the summers”, but no one ever mentions the shoulder seasons! They just might be the local’s special secret.
After the ski resort closes in late spring, and again after school is back in session in the fall before the resort re-opens, are amazing times of year to be in the high country. The Town quiets down and the weather is perfection. It’s the ideal time to enjoy a snowy hike or a cool bike ride.
As an added bonus most of the restaurants run delicious specials including two-for-one entrees or half off bottles of wine (stay tuned for the 2018 Breckenridge Dining Passport for more great deals). The need to make reservations at your favorite Breckenridge restaurants weeks in advance vanishes. With less people in town, not only are your favorite trails empty, but so are your favorite restaurants!
If perfect weather, empty trails and great discounts at the best restaurants aren’t enough to motivate you to visit Breck in the spring or fall, maybe the lowest prices of the year on lodging will do the trick! May is the most affordable time of year to visit followed by October.
We can’t wait for you to experience Breckenridge like never before! The Town transforms during the shoulder seasons and becomes a whole other experience. Just give us a call and we will happily find the best Breckenridge Vacation Rental for you!
