Where Can I sled in Breckenridge?

Carter Park

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. The park offers lovely mountain views of the Tenmile Range, bathroom facilities and picnic tables. And while there are no sled rentals available at the park, plenty of local stores sell affordable sleds.

Use of the park requires a face mask that completely covers your nose and mouth at all times. Users must avoid others and usage of the Runway Sledding Hill is at your own risk.

Limited parking is located on site.  Both bus and lodging shuttle stops are conveniently located nearby.
