It’s a good thing the days are longer in summer because there is a lot of fun to fit in! Breckenridge’s list of family-friendly activities is impressive. Families of all ages can have a seemingly endless list of trails to explore, activities to test out and new experiences around every corner. Families with older kids will love high adrenaline activities like white water rafting, zip-lining throughout the mountains and hitting the trails for some serious views. Families with younger kids will enjoy the town’s close proximity to easy hiking trails, parks, and fishing spots.

Snowshoe Fun!

Nothing is more magical than waking up to a fresh coat of snow in the Rocky Mountains. Breckenridge Ski Resort‘s well-groomed slopes make it easy for families to explore all 5 peaks throughout the week. Kids ages 3 and up can learn to ski and snowboard at the Breckenridge Ski and Ride School while older kids can gain new skills alongside their parents during a Family Private Lesson. Skiing and snowboarding isn’t the only way to enjoy our winter wonderland, active families can enjoy hitting the trails on a snowmobile tour, dog sled ride or guided snowshoe tour. Make sure to also hit the town and grab a tasty cup of hot cocoa in between all of the activities! Of course, you’ll also have to make time to visit the sledding hill, create a few snow angels and unwind with a hot stone massage while the kids nap. Discover more fun activities for your pint-sized adventurers in our Breckenridge Winter Family Guide.
