Breck Pride Week has turned into a staple event in Breckenridge as the town hosts a 5-day celebration for the LGBT community. Official dates and events TBD. Our authentic, rockin’ little mountain town (with a backyard that happens to be a world-class ski resort) is home to all the goods this March. From daily après parties, ski/board lessons, to shopping, dining, dancing, catching a world-class DJ, and much more- this week shouldn’t be missed!
For one day this season, there’ll be bunny on the slopes! Join us in Breckenridge for a Sunrise Easter service at Tenmile Station and other Easter festivities around town. Easter is one of the spring events in Breckenridge that is perfect for the whole family to enjoy.
The Imperial Challenge is one of the only events that celebrates “earning your turns!” The first leg of the competition starts with a 6.2-mile bike race (or run) from the Breckenridge Recreation Center to the Peak 8 base area, via back roads and past Peak 7. From the Peak 8 base area, competitors will snowshoe or skin up to the top of Peak 8 and on to the top of TBar before descending back down on skis or board. Register for this unique competition or watch the accent from the Tbar located on Peak 8.
Breckenridge Spring Finale

Snow or shine, beginning Monday, April 25 and running through Memorial Day, skiers and riders will be able to enjoy approximately 1,000 acres of terrain on Peaks 6, 7 and 8, as weather and conditions permit. The Peak 7 base area will serve as the hub of all operations during the extended season.
