Looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of skiing? Perhaps a mellow day that will keep the whole family entertained at zero cost? You’ve come to the right page. Sledding in Breckenridge is an activity for everyone to enjoy.
When it comes to winter activities, tubing and sledding are always a family favorite. A day playing in the snow is a free way to enjoy the outdoors while giving your legs a break from skiing. Grab your toboggan, saucer or any slider or glider of your choice and get ready for a fun day of sledding at the local sledding hill.
Where Can I sled in Breckenridge?
Runway Sledding Hill on Fraction Drive
The new Runway Sledding Hill on Fraction Drive is free and located near the free parking lot on Airport Road and along the popular Breckenridge Free Ride bus loop. The sledding hill is a walk-up man-made hill. The park is regularly groomed and porta potties are on site. There is no indoor warming hut available and sleds are not provided. The new sledding hill is a great location with plenty of free parking, nearby restaurants to explore and a free bus into town. Usage is not allowed outside the fenced-in area and the building of berms, jumps or other features is prohibited. Skis and snowboards are prohibited.
Users must avoid others and usage of the Runway Sledding Hill is at your own risk.
Parking is available at designated spaces on Fraction Road only. Both bus and lodging shuttle stops are conveniently located nearby.
The Carter Park sledding hill is free and located just four blocks east of Main Street and it boasts a walk-up, slide-down sledding hill that has just the right amount of steepness. The hill is wide, but it can get busy as the day goes on, so plan ahead and get there early. Sled rentals are not available. Parking on-site is limited but bus and lodging shuttles drop-off nearby. Also, please respect the nearby neighbors of the park, as this is their backyard.
