Local's Guide to Breckenridge

Escape the cold, bitter temps and gray skies and head to Breckenridge—the spring break capital of Colorado. During March and April, Breckenridge is the ultimate mountain destination for skiers and snowboarders in search of incredible late-season snow conditions, warm sunshine and a stacked events calendar with concerts, parties, and festivals.

Best Breckenridge Spring Apres-Skiing: T-Bar

With 300 days of sunshine on average annually, Colorado is a surprising destination for sun seekerseven in the winter. Once March and April roll around, the days are longer and the sun is stronger, which makes for perfect afternoons on the patio with a cold Colorado draft beer in hand and Breckenridge’s beautiful Tenmile Range in the sight.

One of the best spots to enjoy a post-skiing refreshment on a glorious Breckenridge spring afternoon is the T-Bar, located at the base of Peak 8. Offering daily food and drink specials, indoor and outdoor seating and some of the area’s best live music.

Best Breckenridge Spring Events

One of the best, and longest, celebrations of spring in the mountains, is Breckenridge Spring Fever. This month-long party is hosted by Breckenridge Ski Resort and features some incredible annual events.

Breck Pride - April 1-5

The first week of April Breck is awash in rainbow. This highly anticipated week for the LGBTQ community, locals, and allies alike, features daily après parties, a spring beer festival and other celebrations, such as Breckenridge Ski Resort Color Run and Drag Queen Bingo. All are invited.

Eggquatic Egg Hunt - April 11

This popular and free Easter event takes place at the Breckenridge Recreation Center pool. Hundreds of plastic eggs await swim-ready kiddos. Parents will enjoy watching their little swimmers scramble through the water just as much as the children will delight in trying to collect the floating colorful little eggs. Pre-register your family, as this event typically fills up quick.

Spring Finale - April 20 - [possibly] May 25

Beckenridge’s official closing day is April 21, but unofficial spring celebrations are slated to continue into Memorial Day.
