From the historic Main Street to legendary skiing, what unites Breckenridge is a shared passion for embracing life’s best moments.

Breckenridge Ski Resort looms over the bustling mountain town, casting an energy in its shadow that is impossible to miss.

Breckenridge features a vibrant après scene, culinary adventures, a buzzing nightlife, and fun local art and music. The Winter Dew Tour comes through in December, bringing the biggest names in extreme snowboarding and skiing. Other events held on the mountain include the annual Imperial Challenge, Breck's version of a triathlon, The 5 Peaks, North America's longest ski mountaineering race, the Breck Ascent Series, with races up the mountain, as well as other competitions, festivals, and the annual Spring Fever month-long celebration.

Summer in Breckenridge attracts outdoor enthusiasts with hiking trails, wildflowers, fly-fishing in the Blue River, mountain biking, nearby Lake Dillon for boating, white water rafting, alpine slides, and many shops and restaurants up and down Main Street. The historic buildings along Main Street with their clapboard and log exteriors add to the charm of the town.
