Retro Skier Breckenridge
Trygve Berge takes some turns at Breck.

1. Retro skier: With bright colors, spandex, fanny packs, big hair and retro sunglasses, this classic costume is a hit. Head over to the local thrift store to find the perfect one-piece and break out that boom box for a memorable evening.

2. Tom’s Baby: You’ve heard the story about the precious golden nugget and probably have skied the fast, steep trail under E-Chair. Now it’s time to live up to the Breckenridge legend and paint yourself gold to be the talk of the town. Note: this could make a fantastic “couples outfit.”

3. Miner: Give homage to Breckenridge history and use your old pair of overalls, black face-paint and wolly hat to recreate the gold miners that put this town on the map.

4. Bar Maid: There is some controversy in town as to which restaurant really was a brothel. Make the story yours and enjoy the bar scene in this history-themed beer-loving outfit.

5. Snow homie, skittle thug, ski bum, or whatever you want to call it: Depending on where you’re from, how old you are and what part of the mountain you prefer to ski on, we’ve all noticed the tall-tee, unzipped jacket, and baggy pant style that this town’s skiers have created into a worldwide fashion trend. Halloween is the perfect evening to try out this mode. Give it a shot, you might end up with a giant bright jacket that fits your style perfectly!

6. Ullr: Horns, fur, snow and more snow. Pay homage to the town’s prized snow god and make it snow! The sacrificing of skis to bonfires is not recommended.

7. C.J. Mueller: Don a full spandex fit and helmet to make this legendary world-class speed skier and Breckenridge local proud. This outfit is guaranteed to get you going over 130 mph!

Ripperoo Breckenridge 8. Ripperoo: Represent the Breckenridge mascot with your best skiing dog outfit.

9. Yeti, Bigfoot, Sasquatch: This elusive character inhabits the mountains and our culture. Scare some locals and put your tracks on the hill in your best furry outfit.

10. Trygve: This local legend – who still skis everyday – founded Breckenridge. As a namesake to our mountain and town, honor this man’s legend with an outfit made solely from trail maps.
