Holidays aside, December is a not-to-be-missed month to visit Breckenridge with some of the year’s best events. With over 8 feet of snow to date and record-setting early opening of the Imperial Chair, snow lovers are in bliss with the current Breckenridge mountain conditions and dreaming daily of the many powder-filled days ahead. The crowds are not yet here en masse and with the lineup of December events, lower rates, and our Black Friday special good through Dec 5, what are you waiting for? An early December stay this year in Breckenridge is guaranteed to be an amazing adventure. Check out one or all of these Breckenridge December events:

December 8, 2018

Full-mode holiday spirit goes into effect with the official Lighting of Breckenridge. The fun starts off with a doggie parade that no one can resist followed by the jolliest race of them all, and ends with Santa flipping the switch to reveal thousands of beautifully strung lights at town center.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes will don their holiday fashions and strut their furry stuff for adoring fans in the Holiday Dog Parade on south Main Street starting at 3:45 pm.  The parade is followed at 4:30 pm by flashes of white and red dashing down Main Street as hundreds of Santas race to claim prizes at the finish line. The crowd will then gather at Blue River Plaza just as the sun has set at 5:00 pm to be awed by the light display in the foreground of the beautiful Breckenridge Mountain backdrop. Request a detailed schedule of events from your hosts at Book Breck.

The WOW factor is high for all phases of the Dew Tour stop in Breckenridge. Onlookers who didn’t even know they were fans of snow sports will be mesmerized by the high-flying and gravity-defying stunts displayed by these talented world-class athletes. Spectating can be done while enjoying food/drinks at the base of Peak 8, while skiing and riding alongside the Superpipe and Slopestyle courses throughout the day, or by obtaining a foot pass for a lift ride up to the bottom of the superpipe. The Streetstyle competition on Washington and Main Street Breckenridge is perhaps the most heart-stopping event on schedule for the Dew Tour. See the full schedule here. …Besides all of that, who doesn’t want to meet the elusive Dew Tour Yeti?
