Events in Breckenridge

The historic mining/resort town of Breckenridge is located two hours west of Denver International Airport via Interstate 70.

From a small mountain community captivated by the prospects of gold to a world renowned Colorado ski resort and vacation destination, the establishment of Breckenridge through the mining years provided many interconnected trails in the surrounding mountains. This trail system now serves avid cross-country skiers, snowshoers, mountain bikers, hikers and nature lovers and is widely used by locals and visitors alike. Breckenridge continues to push the boundaries of what a perfect mountain town can be. With an already impressive variety of amenities, Breckenridge will continue to write its own history laden in golden memories.
