UPDATED: 1/1/2022

Planning a ski vacation should be as fun as skiing down the five snow-covered peaks of Breckenridge Ski Resort, right? Absolutely.

Take a deep breath. We're here to help you.

KNOW BEORE YOU GO SKIING:

Last year was ... well, it was a challenging and difficult year with COVID-19. Breckenridge Ski Resort is still taking precautions for COVID (and so should you), but we know SO much more about COVID than we did last year. 

We are NOT requiring vaccinations to stay at Beaver Run or to dine at our Beaver Run restaurants.
Beaver Run is NOT owned or affiliated with Breckenridge Ski Resort.

Lodging at Beaver Run: NO proof of vaccine needed.
Dining at Beaver Run (at Skywalk Market, Coppertop, Spencer's Restaurant within Beaver Run Resort): NO proof of vaccine needed. NO advance reservations needed.
Skiing at Breck Ski Resort: NO proof of vaccine needed. NO ski day reservations needed
Dining at the Ski Resort restaurants (The Maggie, Ten Mile Station, Vista House): YES - you need a reservation and a proof of vaccination 

Bring your mask or facial covering. You will need it for public transportation, indoors in Breckenridge. Know before you go (check the public health orders). For now, PACK YOUR MASK!
