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.
3. The Events
In Breckenridge, we believe that spring is nature’s way of saying, “let’s party!” That’s why we’ve filled our calendar with festivals, events, and competitions! Join us for Mardi Gras, Breck Pride, Spring Finale and more!

Walking through town on the snow-covered sidewalk, downtown Breckenridge seemed so quiet right before sunrise. With all the Christmas lights and the fresh snow around me, this place looked like a total Winter Wonderland. With the holidays kicking into full gear, the timing of the snowstorm could not have been any better. #winter #bestofbreck #breckdaily #exploresummit #gobreck #liveinbreck #colorado #coloradophotography
