Oktoberfest
Posted by toby | Friday, August 25, 2017

Oktoberfer 2017 in Breckenridge CO

Don’t miss one last opportunity to party in the streets of Breckenridge before the snow flies. Soon everyone will be looking for epic runs, but this fall you will have a chance to enjoy sunshine, food, beer and golden leaves. Oktoberfest in Breckenridge will be held September 8th-10th. While the street party will be downtown, there will be celebrations and events throughout Breckenridge. 

The Street Party

Oktober Fest 2017 Breck

The street party will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the afternoon. It will include German food vendors, beer, live entertainment, traditional costumes, and polka! Each year party goers get their commemorative stein to enjoy drinks and keep as a souvenir. You can order this year’s stein ahead of time, and you should because they often run out. While this event is centered around brews, there are also games, face-painting, and entertainment for kids. 

Leave Your Pets at Home

Unlike most other events in Breckenridge, this festival doesn’t include dog friends. The abundance of food and drink makes it too challenging to create a safe environment for pets.

Brewmaster Dinner

The Brewmaster Dinner will be held at 10 Mile Station. It will include four courses paired with carefully chosen beers. Each course will feature a traditional German dish from appetizers to dessert. Reservations are required for this decadent event.

Trail Run

If you would like to get a workout before splurging on sausage, spatzel, and Bavarian brews, join the 5K trail run. You can enjoy local trails and cross the finish line in time to celebrate all afternoon at the street party.

Oktoberfest 2017 Breckenridge COBrunch 

You could also start out your day on Saturday with a brunch hosted by Breckenridge Brewery. Savor local craft beers and relish creative and artistic dishes over a several course meal. This event also requires a reservation.

 

Check Out the Leaves

In addition to all of the festivities in town, the aspen leaves will be at their peak. Wander down trails under a thick canopy of golden leaves. Take scenic drives or go for a bike ride. This will be an ideal weekend to take in all of the best sites and spectacular views that the mountains have to offer.

Get Away

Oktoberfest is the perfect opportunity to get away for the weekend. Enjoy friends, music, tradition, food, and beer. Take in stunning vistas and revel in the last golden days of the season. Check out Breckenridge Resort Managers to find a comfortable condo or house to share with friends in a convenient location for the weekend. For a full schedule of events, to order steins or make a reservation for an event go to Go Breck.

What To Do In Breck During The Summer
Posted by toby | Friday, June 2, 2017

Summer Family Activities in Breckenridge

Breckenridge has tons of summer activities for the whole family. If the cool, fresh mountain air, spectacular views and fields of wild alpine flowers are not enough to draw you into the mountains, there are plenty of events and activities to enjoy with your friends and family. Here are a few of our favorites.

Tours with Breckenridge Heritage Alliance

The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance offers a broad range of walking tours guided by local experts. You can take a leisurely stroll through the historic district in downtown, join friends for a Victorian Tea in a historic home, or take a Twilight Tombstone Tour. They also offer hikes to historic mining ghost towns and other places of interest near Breckenridge.

Family Summer Activities in Breckenridge

Country Boy Mine 

Located just two miles from downtown Breckenridge, the Country Boy Mine is the perfect place to learn about the area’s rich mining history. Once an active gold mine, you can now take a mine tour and see what it was like working underground. This isn’t just a museum; you can also try panning for gold yourself or slide down the 55 ft. ore shoot. The Country Boy Mine is a great attraction for the whole family.

Festivals

There are festivals and events most weekends throughout the summer. Plan your trip around an event that piques your interest, such as the WAVE: Light + Water event, Breckenridge Beer Fest, or The International Festival of Arts. Take in exhibits and events throughout the festivals while enjoying all the shops and dining in downtown Breckenridge.

Events at the Riverwalk Center

The Riverwalk is a venue that offers concerts and events ranging from free late night movies to classical performances to folk concerts. Check out their schedule and enjoy your favorite artists in this stunning venue.

Hike a 14er

Colorado is proud of its many peaks over 14,000 feet, lovingly called 14ers. There is no shortage of 14ers near Breckenridge. Mt. Quandary is one of the most commonly ascended peaks. The trailhead is easy to access, located off of Highway 9 going south toward Hoosier Pass. Start early in the morning to avoid dangerous afternoon thunderstorms. If your family is not up to a 14er, there are many easier hikes that allow you to enjoy beautiful scenery at a comfortable pace. See our past post about best hikes to view the wildflowers.

Local Hiking Trails

If a 14er isn’t in the schedule for you, try one from Breckenridge’s extensive trail system with hiking trails for all skill levels. Beginners, kids and families will enjoy Boreas Pass Rd which has great views, but is relatively flat and wide. More advanced hikers will enjoy Boreas Pass mountain trail or Baker’s Tank Trail which is littered with wild roses and other wildflowers. (Learn more about our local wildflowers here.) There are many options for trails of all lengths, which you can learn about here: http://www.breckenridgerecreation.com/fun-things-to-do-/open-space-trails/trail-maps

Epic Discovery

Take the Gondola up the mountain and experience Epic Discovery. An all day pass will get you access to the alpine slide, alpine coaster, ziplines, climbing walls, a bungee trampoline, mini golf and so much more. Epic Discovery provides a full day of activity for everyone in the family. Some of the activities have age and height requirements, so check to make sure your family can enjoy the activities they were looking forward to. Epic Discovery also offers off-road jeep tours, guided hikes, and guided mountain bike rides.Summer Family Activities in Breckenridge

Get Away

Summer is the ideal time to plan a getaway to the mountains. Leave the business and heat of the city behind. Enjoy quality time with your family at the many family friendly attractions. Find adventure on a hike or mountain bike ride. Enjoy miles of paved trails for road biking, play a round of golf and check out your favorite artists all within the vicinity of this relaxing mountain town. Book the perfect home base for your summer adventure with Breckenridge Resort Managers.

USA PRO Challenge 2014 - Breckenridge
Posted by toby | Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Stage 5 finish of the USA Pro Challenge hits Breckenridge on August 22nd 2014, after a grueling 80 mile trek from woodland Park Colorado.  Though the first 55 miles are a beautiful and gradual ride through the Colorado countryside, the last 25 miles will take these riders over both Hoosier pass and Boreas pass, proving who the real climbers are.  Don’t miss the Finish of the USA Pro challenge in Breckenridge, at about 3:p.m. on August 22nd 2014.

USA Pro Cycling Challenge 2014 race day events-

Thursday August 21st Town of Breckenridge River walk Lawn- bike in movie night

Friday August 22nd will bring a free concert at the Breckenridge River walk Center- Big Head Todd and the Monsters at 7:30 p.m.

5 insiders tips to fully enjoy the race-

1. The race finishes at about 3:30, but you need to get your spot along main street early!  Activities begin at noon, and carry on until and after the race.

2. Speaking of early, if you are coming from the south to Breckenridge, the road will be closed for many hours prior to race time.  Get on the road early if you do not want to miss the finish of the USA pro challenge on Main Street.

3. Parking will be a zoo, so again, early birds will be happy!  If you arrive in town early, you may have a shot at parking in town at one of our many lots.  However, as the USA pro challenge finish gets closer, Main Street will be closed, and parking will be very limited.  The best places to find open parking are at the gondola lots, the satellite lot at the north of town, the ice rink lot, and the gold rush lot. 

4. Now you are here, early (hopefully), and you want to be in selfie distance from the finishing racers, right?  There is quite a long stretch of highway 9 in Breckenridge that will get you directly in the action, from the south entrance to town, past the ice rink, and several blocks past you will have a front row seat.  Also, several blocks north you will be able to get face to face with the athletes. 

5. Wait or wait.  The race is over, and you have a choice to make.  You can either wait in traffic, heading back to your Breckenridge vacation rental or back home, or you can wait in town for traffic to clear up, and enjoy all the shopping, dining, and activities that make our town special.  Stay, shop, have dinner, and go back to your bed happy and relaxed.  Unless you enjoy traffic…

Top 5 things to experience on Breckenridge opening day 2012 2013
Posted by toby | Sunday, September 30, 2012

Breckenridge Opening Day 2012

Welcome to Breckenridge opening day 2012 2013, which will begin for you on November 9th, 2012!  As excited as we all get for this time of year, and as many great experiences as it brings, we have narrowed it down the the top five most exciting parts of Breckenridge opening day.  Drumroll.... 1. Lots of opening day terrain- sure, ski area opening day at most areas include a short, narrow, "ribbon of death".  However, in Breckenridge, we have one of the most comprehensive and effective snowmaking systems in the world.  SO no matter the early season conditions, Breckenridge is always open with plenty of terrain for everyone, and no ribbon of death. 2. Escape the crowd- Early season is a great time to hit the slopes, with no crowds.  Sure, there is limited terrain compared to peak season.  However, for the terrain that is open, the lack of people on the mountain make you feel like it is all yours. 3. Everything is fresh, new, and clean- From the wax on the bottom of your skiis, to the merchandise in our retail stores, to the warm and inviting attitudes of our helpful town employees, Breckenridge has a brand new, grand opening every November.  Everything has been shipped in, pulled out, dusted off, shined up, and prepared just for your vacation. 4. Early Season ticket prices- Aside from late spring, early season offers some of the best lift ticket rates of the entire year.

Gotta love it!  Breckenridge is open,not a little, but a lot!  Even part of he bowl is open if you want to hike the t-bar.  I was up there today (as you can see in the pics) and it was glorious.  It is the perfect opening day, 30 degrees, sunny, 34 inches at mid mountain, snow guns blowing, and every bit of the Breckenridge mountain charm in full effect. Yes, those are people on the lift, ascending vertically to ski Breckenridge Resort for opening day 2010-2011.  I would have loved to have joined in, but I had to get back to the office and send this picture out!

Breckenridge Kingdom Days 2010- schedule of events
Posted by toby | Friday, June 18, 2010
Breckenridge Kingdom days is our annual welcome to summer celebration of the rich history and unique culture of Breckenridge. Founded over 150 years ago as a gold rush mining town, Breckenridge was not your normal city. Perhaps that is why mapmakers and the rest of civilized society, did not recognize Breckenridge as a town. So darn it, we recognized ourselves, as the kingdom of Breckenridge. Breckenridge Kingdom days is a yearly party that serves as a reminder to our population that Breckenridge will always remain fairly similar to where it started. Coming to Breckenridge Kingdom days? Then by golly you need to know what to do while you are here. The activities during Breckenridge Kingdom Days include (Full Schedule of Breckenridge Kingdom Days events)- -A wild west gunfight on main street -Museum tours of our historic buildings -Live music -The Kingdom days in Breckenridge Town Party -The increasingly popular outhouse races Full schedule of Breckenridge kingdom days events can be found on our main site.
