This is it, Breckenridge ski season 13/14 is coming to a close this weekend, and we watch it go with both the sadness of packing up our sticks, and the excitement of breaking out the shorts. Spring in Breckenridge is an interesting mix of warm sunny days, and wet heavy snow storms. Every spring brings the mystery of what type summer we will get. Will it snow until June, and create a short summer; or will the skies offer a heaping portion of sunny blues, and create a never ending summer playground?
All we know for sure is that come Sunday, when the last run has been skied, we will all be looking for the mystery to unfold, and the clouds to roll back, opening up permission to wear flip flops, and eat an ice cream by the river.
The snow that will create that river is now melting, running down and through the bedrock of this fantastic town. By the numbers of our winter snow totals below, water levels should be consistent and full this summer, bringing to life the abundant nature and activities that we all look forward to enjoying.

3 things to know as winter leaves, and summer comes home-
- Sure, May and early June are muddy, but they are six of the most relaxing weeks in Breckenridge. Visitors can really relax, and locals are able to take a breath, and enjoy the town we call home.
- Wildlife come to life in May- creatures great and small, along with their human counterparts, begin to creep out into the forest, and frolic in the summery climate. Be careful of bears!
- Breckenridge is known for our ski area, but summer is when you need to be here. Forget the beach, come rafting, hiking, camping, wheeling, riding, and biking in our never ending playground this summer.
