Breckenridge: Here Comes The Snow

Breckenridge: Here Comes The Snow

I just got back from spending a few days in Breckenridge, one of the world-class ski resorts that dot the state of Colorado. Fortunately for my knees, I’ve resisted the temptation up to this point to ski. Just taking garbage out on an icy driveway has often proved challenging enough.

But you don’t have to ski or snowboard to enjoy the small town of Breckenridge, which is nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains in north central Colorado.

Here’s a report that provides an overview for the town of Breckenridge. And here’s from Wikipedia:

Breckenridge is also home to one of North America’s most popular ski resorts during the winter months, with the Breckenridge Ski Resort servicing multi-difficulty ski slopes across 4 peaks on the Ten Mile Range of the Rocky Mountains. Summer in Breckenridge attracts outdoor enthusiasts with hiking trails, wildflowers, fly-fishing in the Blue River, mountain biking, nearby Lake Dillon for boating, white water rafting, alpine slides, and several shops up and down Main Street. Every year, Breckenridge hosts the Breckenridge Festival of Film, established in 1981, Uller Fest every January, as well as an annual Fourth of July parade.

During the past weekend, the town was filled with people like me taking advantage of the warm weather, clear blue sky and sunshine. Many were walking, biking, shopping and enjoying the excellent restaurants. I even managed to find a spot where I could sit and rubberneck, while downing a cold brew at a special happy hour price.

But this after all is a ski town, with the slopes opening November 9.

So I expect many were thrilled today to see snow beginning to cover both the town and the mountains.

Drivers can make it in good weather to Breckenridge in about 90 minutes from Denver. When the snow covers Interstate 70, something tells me that is another matter. Maybe faster to strap on a pair of snowshoes and go at your own pace.

Something tells me this is going to happen soon.

In Breckenridge, as in other parts of Colorado including Woodland Park, here comes the snow.


  1. Gyorgyi and I are so excited for our snowboarding trip to Breckenridge– though rubbernecking and beer sampling sound pretty good too!

      You’ll enjoy Breckenridge. Just a lovely, scenic little town, with plenty to do for those of us who don’t ski. And something tells me that when you are there the snowboarding will be fantastic.
