Things To Do in Breckenridge: Winter Activities

In 2016, Travel + Leisure magazine named Breckenridge Ski Resort the second most popular in the nation with 1.6 million annual skier visits. Clearly, on-mountain rank is at the top of the list once the snow flies. But skiing is one among many Breckenridge Winter Activities that can be divided most simply by outdoor adventures versus indoor pursuits. Outdoors, other mountain sports include snowboarding, snow biking, snowshoeing, tubing, cat skiing and horse-drawn sleigh rides. Off-mountain, Breckenridge is home to two separate Nordic (cross-country) skiing and snowshoe centers with more than 65 kilometers of trails that you can enjoy with or without canine companions. Breckenridge winter activities also take place at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena, which boasts an indoor rink with classes and skate rentals and a newly covered outdoor rink and warming area. Breckenridge Winter Activities grow more varied with each passing season. Skiing in Breckenridge still rules the hills, but, increasingly, outdoor enthusiasts are participating in niche sports like fat tire snow biking or ski biking (in which small skis are in the spots that usually feature wheels).

Winter Activities in Breckenridge are Everywhere

Indoor pursuits that help make up Breckenridge winter activities are scattered throughout town. If the Picasso inside you yearns for creative expression, the Arts District offers classes in jewelry making, painting and more. Museums throughout town are dedicated to Breckenridge’s remarkable achievers like naturalist Edwin Carter, escaped-slave-turned-entrepreneur Barney Ford or the figures central to ski sport development. Cooking classes at Colorado Mountain College allow you to whip up international fare with the extra challenge of preparing ingredients in a high-altitude environment. And housed in a newly renovated historic community center, The Speakeasy is the only movie screen in town with matinees and evening features.
