Why Locals Love Summer in Breck
Posted by admin | Thursday, May 24, 2018

World class skiing is what comes to mind first when you think of Breckenridge. However, this charming mountain town isn’t just for winter sports. Locals in Breck have a saying: “Come for winter, stay for summer.” There is so much to do and see that you can stay just as busy in Breckenridge in July as you can in January.

Ideal Weather

While temperatures soar all over the country during the hottest summer months, Breckenridge holds steady at a comfortable 70-80. The high altitude and dry air keep temperatures pleasant even during the longest days of summer. At night, the air cools down and offers the perfect temperature for a bonfire. Forget heat and humidity, Breck offers sunny days and relaxing, cool nights.
