Goodbye Breckenridge Ski Season 2013-2014

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-

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.

Breckenridge Spring Vacation Rental Blowout- 25% off everything, no blackout, no restrictions!

Just a few weeks left of Breckenridge ski season 13/14, and just a few more chances to catch a few last runs before it is all gone.  Breckenridge Spring Fever 2014 is in full force with 40 events to close out the season, and accentuating your vacation with free concerts and warm temperatures.   

Spring in Breckenridge captures both the fantastic skiing our mountain offers, as well as giving us a taste of those fantastic summer months we are all craving right now.  Spring is the perfect bland of seasons, topped off with the biggest event schedule of the year, making it the right time for you to take one last break to Breck.

 The three biggest surprises about Breckenridge in Spring-

  1. You will never be able to dress appropriately.  On Friday it may be 45 and sunny, and Saturday it will be 10 and dumping snow.  Make sure you pack for both!
  2. You can ski in a bathing suit!  Actually, this has been a tradition since the 60’s, during the spring months.  However, before you go parading about in front of your creator in your speedo, check the weather.
  3. Groomers are your friend.  Almost every spring day, the hot sun gives way to a frozen evening, creating layers of ice on virtually every surface.  The mountain is no different, and our runs get extremely hard and icy in April during the morning, followed up with mushy and slushy afternoons.  The best skiing of the day is in the mornings, and on our endless groomed trails. 

Along with the acres of melting snow, our rates are melting away at the end of the season, making a vacation in Breckenridge even more affordable!  We are closing 13/14 with a fantastic Breckenridge vacation rental deal- Take 25% off any stay 3 nights or more, for the rest of the season!

Spring Break In Breckenridge

Spring Break in Breckenridge- bring on the sun, snow, and savings!

Yesterday I was able to ski the mountain for a few hours.  It was sunny, 35, warm, and absolutely beautiful up there.  As I glided over the top layer of hard packed snow, and my skis found the soft powder below, I found myself cherishing the warmth on my face, and dreaming of the blissful and bright days of spring.

Alas, just weeks away, spring break starts around the country for many schools, and families.  Perhaps you are one of them, and perhaps you too desire to feel the warm spring sun on your face, and the soft spring snow beneath your skis?  Well, your time to book is now, and the season is a great one for you.  Currently, as of February, we have accumulated 300 inches of snow!  The base is deep, the coverage is vast, and the fun is nonstop.

Just for you, we have unleashed a special deal on spring break lodging equally as exciting as the snow totals. 

Take 20% off your spring break dates if you stay 5 nights or more, between 3/17/14 and ski area closing!

Terms, conditions, and blackouts apply. Not all units participating.
