10 Reasons To Love Spring In Breckenridge

In case you haven’t realized it yet, spring in Breckenridge is the perfect time of year. There’s a ton of new snowfall, the temperatures start to rise, and endless sunny days mean you can finally break out those shorts that have been lost in your closet for months. Not to mention, there are some great events going on too! We’ve put together our top 10 reasons you can’t miss spring in Breckenridge this March, April and May so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!

 

1. The Sunshine

300 days of sunshine on average every year. But, really who’s counting?

2. Spring Skiing Attire

It wouldn’t be spring skiing without wacky outfits from bikinis to full-on costumes. The higher sun angle and daylight savings brings warmer and longer days that have a full-moon effect on skiers and riders. You’ll see it all this time of year.

4. Après Scene

Après ski is taken to a whole new level in the spring. After a fun-filled day playing in the snow, find your favorite patio or deck, order a beer or your favorite beverage, and enjoy with a view! You’ve earned it.

4. Big Dumps

Did you know? March and April are two of the snowiest months of the year. It’s not uncommon to be skiing waist-deep pow one day and sunny slushy days the next!

7. An Extended Ski Season

Breckenridge Resort is now open until May 30th!  Thanks to a base elevation of 9,600 feet above sea-level, including the highest chairlift in North America – the Imperial Express – Breck is often blessed with plentiful snowfall, excellent spring snow conditions, and one of the longest-running ski seasons of any major resort in the country. Join the fun at the base of Peak 8 with live music, food, drinks and great people!

8. The Views

9. Laid Back Town

After the spring break crowds leave, spring in Breckenride is relatively laid back.  Enjoy apres ski in town then follow it up with incredible shopping and dining,  historic tours or exploring the arts and culture scene. The best part is you won’t need a car while you’re here!

10.  Longer Days

In January, we will see about 9.5 hours of daylight, but in mid-March, it is closer to 12 hours. That’s nearly three hours of extra sunlight, which means there is time to go back to your hotel or condo after skiing, rest, and still have daylight for other activities around town. There is so much to explore, you will need it!
