So, what does this mean for you?

  • OPENING DAYS: Breckenridge opened Nov. 13 (that's Friday the 13th, by the way) and Keystone opened Nov. 6.
  • NEW RESERVATIONS SYSTEM: 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. Contact Breckenridge Ski Resort with any questions about your pass 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.
  • OTHER WINTER ADVENTURES:  There are A LOT of other winter activities and adventures in Breckenridge. 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. ** Please check in advance for availability and operations of these activities **
