21 Bucket List Activities in Breck for 2021

It's finally 2021! We've all been waiting to travel, to eat out, to visit with family and to gather with friends and enjoy a real-deal, actual vacation without masks, physical distancing or other COVID safety precautions. It's almost time. With the vaccine being delivered, Americans are hoping to travel safely and potentially without masks or other COVID precaucations by this spring or summer.

Here are 21 Bucket List activities to do in Breckenridge : 10 activities that you can do right now with COVID restrictions and then 11 activities that we can *HOPEFULLY* do later this year once it's safe and our public health officials have lifted restrictions.
Don't just dream about the "Bucket List vacation," book it at Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge.


  1. Private ski day - no lift lines for you. Take a private lesson and you'll scoot to the front of the line every time. Learn the secret stashes and spots on the mountain and get a private, guided tour and some helpful tips for your skiing (or snowboard). 
  2. Ski, bike and golf in the same day: Start your day on the mountain in Breck on skis. Ski for a few hours, then drive down to Denver on a warmer spring day and bike and golf in 60+ degree weather for the adventure trifecta.
  3. Snowmobiling: Go full throttle and explore the Colorado scenery through an adrenaline-charged adventure. Book a snowmobile tour with one of the outfitters here in Breckenridge or contact our concierge at 970-453-6000.
  4. Dog sledding: This is a howling good time. Hang on - this can range anywhere from a casual trek through the woods to a full-on sprint. Good Times Adventures in Breck is one of the premier outfitters.
  5. Fat bike tour to the Distillery: Work up an appetite with a fat bike tour from town to the Breckenridge Distillery and then enjoy lunch and a tasting of the finest bourbon in town.
  6. VIP experience in Breck: Private ski lesson + private tasting room at the Distillery + buy out a restaurant for a private dining experience. Stay at Beaver Run's Building 4 for a ski-in, ski-out condo and you'll be set.
  7. Hut trip: Book a trip with Colorado Adventure Guides and they'll make sure you have all of the gear, book your hut reservations and guide you to/from the hut.
  8. Kids extravaganza: It's all about the little ones - start with a private family lesson on the slopes at Breckenridge in the morning, then enjoy lunch at Downstairs at Eric's (a kiddo favorite in town) followed by hot cocoa and sledding at Carter Park. End back at Beaver Run for indoor mini golf and an evening swim in the outdoor heated pool overlooking the slopes. 
  9. Main Street Shopping Spree: Plan to spend a few hours just strolling down Main Street and then treat yourself to a shopping spree at some of our favorite shops and restaurants in town, like Mountain Outfitters where you can get a full backcountry ski setup, Mountain Goat where you can find functional, fashionable mountain outfits, Raitman Gallery where you can pick up an original painting. Splurge on lunch, afternoon snacks or dinner at Relish, Modis, Aurum, Hearthstone or the newest addition - Rootstalk - in town.
  10. Spa weekend: Relax and recharge. Plan your ski days and then book spa treatments every afternoon at the Spa at Beaver Run. 

11 FUTURE BUCKET LIST ACTIVITIES (once COVID restrictions have been lifted - this is a list of what to do once our public health officials have deemed them safe and removed current restrictions):
