  • November 22, 2019

There is a reason – or multiple reasons for that matter – that Breckenridge is annually named one of the most picturesque holiday towns in this country. Besides the fact that we are almost guaranteed a white Christmas, Breckenridge has many activities to enjoy.

Skiing & Snowboarding

Breckenridge has 5 skiable peaks. With 2908 acres and 187 trails, you won’t get bored with the runs. Breckenridge also has the tallest chairlift in North America! If you need to rent skis or a snowboard, our exclusive partner, Charter Sports is conveniently located across the street from The Wedgewood Lodge and will offer you a 30% discount on your rentals. You can also store your equipment there overnight without a charge – the store is located right next to the Snowflake Lift and the lift ticket office.

Nordic Skiing 

More than 5 millennia ago, Scandinavians strapped on skinny skis as a way for transportation during the long winter season. This was a way of transportation between the villages. Snow shoeing was created most likely by Native Americans and those in Central Asia. There are many beautiful trails for snowshoeing. The Nordic Center offers 40 kilometers of groomed trails. Both activities ensure great exercise and connection with nature.


This fun, free activity is sure to offer a great time for the entire family.  Take a break from skiing and head to Carter Park – you will hear kids and adults alike laughing and having a great time!


Dog Sledding

A different kind of sledding, Breckenridge offers some of the best dog sledding Colorado.  Enjoy the serene nature and winter forest with this unique experience for the entire family.









Here is another way to experience the majestic Rockies in a very exciting way. Guides with Good Times will lead you through beautiful territory with incredible views. Snowmobiling is a truly exhilarating way to experience the outdoors.

Sleigh Rides

Dash through the snow in a sleigh pulled by horses. Sleigh rides are a magical way to experience the beautiful scenery of the mountains with your entire family. Guides at Nordic Sleigh Rides will ensure that this will be an experience that will stay with you for a long time!
