What’s Happening In Breckenridge This Month
Right now we’ll forgive you if the only thing you’re dreaming about is getting to visit Breck. Like you, we’re waxing our boards and making sacrifices to the snow gods. But here in Breck, we have much more to do than hitting the slopes. We offer a wide variety of activities and events for all ages. Here’s what’s coming up in and around Breckenridge from now through December. (Find more details at Breckenridge.com/events.) —Rachel Walker
Mid-November—Mid-December: Early Season Lessons
Whether you’re tuning up or adding building blocks to your repertoire, it pays dividends to take a lesson (or three) at the beginning of the season. Better yet, the crowds rarely converge before the Christmas holiday, which means your group lesson is likely to feel more like a semi-private or private.
November 26: Thanksgiving, delivered
Guests at the Mountain Thunder Lodge and Village at Breckenridge can order a complete Thanksgiving turkey dinner to be delivered to their condo. Prices vary. Orders must be placed by November 23.
November 30—December 6: Hartford Ski Spectacular
The nation’s largest winter sports festival for people with physical disabilities brings more than 800 registered participants to Breckenridge. Events include learn-to-ski and race programs, youth development camps and corporate races. The event is conducted by Disabled Sports USA (DS/USA), a provider of sports rehabilitation programs to anyone with permanent disabilities since 1967.
December 4-6: Handmade Holiday Market
Stroll the Breckenridge Arts District for handcrafted gifts made by local artisans.
December 5: Lighting of Breckenridge and Santa Race
The North Pole comes to Colorado in this magical event. The town tree’s illumination marks the official
start of the holiday season, and the race with hundreds of Santa Claus impersonators is simply hilarious and a blast to take part in.
December 10-13: Dew Tour
The tour returns in its eighth consecutive year, bringing four days of world-class snowboard and free skiing competitions, live concerts, athlete meet ups and more. Watch professionals in Superpipe, slopestyle and freestyle. Have a lift ticket or pass? Ski or snowboard to the competitions. Pedestrians will have free lift access on designated chairs.
