Favorite Summer Activities: Staff Picks

There's a saying here in Breckenridge, Colorado by locals: "Come for the winters, but stay for the summers." It's true. Summer is the locals' favorite time of the year when ski trails melt into hiking and biking trails. Rivers rush for kayaking, rafting and fly fishing. Lake Dillon is smooth sailing for well, sailing, pontoon boating, fishing, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. And summer "beaches" welcome locals and visitors alike (we have a beach at the Frisco Marina and the Riverwalk Center lawn is a great riverside "beach").

There's so much more to do in Breckenridge in the summer compared to the winter, says Bruce Horii, director of sales and marketing for Beaver Run. We asked our Beaver Run team for their favorites to share with you:


Mountain views




"Since our summers are so short, anything that gets you outside is a great option. Whether it is on land or water, you are always surrounded by a spectacular view!"

Fly Fishing



"You get lost in the middle of the river focused on trying to catch a rainbow trout, all of the clutter in your brain goes away for a while."

Boating on Lake Dillon



Being on the water is a favorite summertime activity for many of our team members, including Bob Barto, our general manager. Some people prefer a pontoon sunset cruise while others love the thrill and challenge of sailing on Lake Dillon. 
The Frisco Marina also offers kayak and canoe rentals, in addition to motor boat rentals like pontoons. You can also book a guided fishing trip on the Lake.
