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.

35 organized, high-quality survival tools, and instruction in one kit.

  • Finally, we made it to the troll! Well, Tim had to work but we made it:)
*
Isak Heartstone, or the Breckenridge troll, is a 15ft tall wooden troll sculpture.  He was created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo for the Breckenridge International Art Show.  This is the second location for Isak; he was moved in 2018 after his original location was so busy it was disruptive for the local neighborhood.
*
There's a cute little trail (see my stories) with troll signs and all the things.  It reminded us of a fairy snow trail or something like that.
*
You can find Isak on the Trollstigen Trail just up the road from Main Street next door to the ice arena and railroad park.  The parking is FREE during the day but the lot fills up quickly since skiers park there and catch the FREE bus.  Did I mention the awesome FREE public transportation in Breck?
*
Make sure you stop in, it only takes a minute, but it's cool to see and to get a fun photo!
