Things to Do This Spring in Breckenridge

Springtime in Breckenridge, Colorado is a magical time of year! As the snow starts to melt away, the town comes alive with vibrant colors and exciting events. Here are some of the best things to do in Breckenridge this spring:

Hit the Slopes:

Just because it’s spring doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some skiing or snowboarding. Breckenridge Ski Resort stays open through late April and even into May if conditions allow. So, grab your skis and head up the mountain for some unforgettable runs.

Go for a Hike:

Once the snow starts to melt, the mountains are transformed into a hiker’s paradise. Breckenridge has a ton of amazing hiking trails to choose from, each with its own unique views and challenges.

SkyRun’s Recommendations:
Blue Lakes Trail:
The Blue Lakes Trail is a beautiful, moderate hike that takes you to two pristine alpine lakes surrounded by breathtaking mountain views. The trail is filled with wildflowers in the springtime, and the lakes themselves are crystal-clear and perfect for a refreshing dip on a warm day.
McCullough Gulch Trail:
This moderate hike is a local favorite, and for good reason. The trail takes you through a beautiful valley filled with wildflowers and aspen groves, and ends at a stunning waterfall. This hike is perfect for springtime, as the snow melts and creates a rushing stream that follows the trail.

Go Fly Fishing:
