Winter Activities 

There are lots of activities you can do, during the winter season, so you’ll have to choose which ones your group will try this time, and which ones you’ll have to come back for.  If you’re ready to look at the mountain in a whole new way, be sure to check out the blogs from local skiers and riders who talk about skiing some of the hardest lines on the hill, or see what’s it’s like to cruise down the line of jumps, rails and features in the Park Lane terrain park, point out these different options to your group members to make sure each person knows the terrain that will be best for them.

Three ways to prepare for your trip

To make sure everyone has a game plan when they arrive, here are three ways you can prepare for your trip to Breck.  Know before you go and make the most of your time in the mountains.

  1. Talk about skill levels of the group members. Find out who your ski buddies are.
  2. Try something new.  Go cross country skiing, snowshoeing, or try night skiing.
  3. Explore the Breckenridge Ski Resort using the new Google Maps street view.

Food and Dining

One of the hardest parts for many groups is figuring out a place to eat together. If you’re on-mountain, the Vista Haus or the Maggie can accommodate large groups and reserve places for you to meet up. Or, they can even create a special menu for your group depending on budget and dietary needs. In town, there’s lots of restaurants in the historic downtown area, so give yourself a break from cooking and visit a family-friendly eatery, some of which have space that can be reserved for private gatherings.

Summer Adventures 

Breck Bike Bus
The Breckenridge Bike Bus is another fun activity for large groups in town.

The cliche is true.  Locals come for the winters and stay for the summers.  Find out why and visit Breckenridge during the warmer summer months when the hillsides are bursting with wildflowers and the streams are running — not to mention when rates are competitive and many groups have more time to spend.  Outside of group meeting needs, your members can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and four wheel drive tours.
