Uphill access is subject to change at any time and guests must observe all posted signage and closures.
Breck Plunge – Closing Day, Sunday, Apr 22
Breckenridge Ski Resort is providing a frigid pond of water at the base of peak 8 and all participants need to do is sign up, dress up, and arrive prepared with the courage to try to ski or snowboard across it. Spectators are invited to join the fun and cheer on their friends at the base of Peak 8. Afterwards enjoy food, drinks, and live music at the TBar.
Judges will be on hand for the frigidly fun festivities. Successfully skimming the pond is not the only way to score points and win prizes though, as participants will be judged on costumes too! Pro Tips: (1) The best costumes are the ones that get the crowd going with lots of laughs. (2) The faster you go, the more likely you are to reach the end, but there’s always a high likelihood you will still end up taking the plunge!
Registration is live and is $25 per plunger, open to competitors ages 18 and over. Registration: http://bit.ly/BreckPlungeRegistration18
Imperial Challenge – Saturday, Apr 21
On Saturday, Apr 21 – it’s time to gear up for the 27th annual Imperial Challenge. Kicking off at the Breckenridge Rec Center, competitors bike or run 6 miles to the base of Peak 7, and then ascend to the top of the T-bar or to the top of Peak 8. The signature Breck event is a rite of spring, a ton of fun, and whatever you make of it – race the clock, or goof off in your funniest costume. Celebrate your hard fought victory with food and drinks at the TBar’s “Music with a View Series” on Peak 8 featuring Beau Thomas from NBC’s “The Voice” and his band from 1:30 pm -5:30 pm.
