How to Plan a COVID-19 Ski Vacation to Breckenridge

We have BIG news to share with you. Vail Resorts, the owner of Breckenridge Ski Resort, announced a Nov. 13 opening day, along with their plans for the 2020-2021 upcoming ski & snowboard season and how to re-open safely for you and our community. In addition to requiring facial coverings and physical distancing, the biggest change is a RESERVATIONS SYSTEM


We're sharing the information from Vail Resorts and a few tips to help you prepare for the winter season and to make sure you're ready for an upcoming stay in Breckenridge with us!

Here are a few of the highlights of the Breckenridge Ski Resort announcement:

  • The early season will be for passholders only. Lift tickets won't be sold until Dec. 8 (BUT - you can buy a season pass or an Epic Day pass, which is an advance lift ticket. The only catch? You need to commit and buy these in advance. The deadline is Sept. 17 (this deadline *might* be extended, but it also might not).
  • Reservations to ski for this season at Breck Ski Resort will be required, but they're hoping to NOT limit capacity on most days (there are no guarantees, of course). The reservations system opens on Nov. 6. Mark your calendar NOW!
  • Food & beverage options will be limited. Ski school will operate, but with limited capacity and new protocols
  • Facial coverings will be required
  • Lift riding will be limited to your own party or a certain # of people depending on the capacity of the chairlift/gondola
  • You can get a refund on your season pass now through Sept. 17 if these procedures don't work for you.

So, what does this mean for you?

  • OPENING DAYS: Breckenridge is set to open Nov. 13 (that's Friday the 13th, by the way) and Keystone is set to open Nov. 6.
  • NEW RESERVATIONS: A pass = better access with the new reservations system for lift access. Passholders get "first dibs" on reservations.
  • WHERE TO BUY YOUR PASS: You must buy your season passes and day passes (advance lift tickets) and lift tickets through Vail Resorts and make your reservations online through the ski resort, too at ** Please note: Beaver Run is a lodging property and we do not sell season passes or lift tickets. **
  • EARLY SEASON SKIING: If you're planning to ski before Dec. 8, your only option is to buy a season pass or a day pass NOTE: Lift tickets will not be sold prior to Dec.
  • PRIORITY DAYS: If you NEED to ski on certain days, you're best bet is to buy a Vail Resorts season pass or a day pass by Sept. 17. Here's why: If you have a pass, you'll be able to get PRIORITY RESERVATION DAYS. That means, you'll be able to secure up to 7 of your ski days. The exclusive reservations window for passholders is Nov. 6-Dec. 7. You'll also be able to reserve more days throughout the season.

Don't forget that Breckenridge offers fat biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, backcountry skiing ("know before you go!"), ice skating, dog sledding, tubing, sleigh rides, art classes and SO, SO much more.
