Fat Biking

Breckenridge is one of the meccas of mountain biking - summer, fall, spring or even in the winter - with some of the best trails in the country, most of which are rideable from Beaver Run and from downtown. The area offers something for everyone from beginners to experts and also provides groomed trails that run all the way through town and around Lake Dillon, connecting the Town of Breckenridge with the Town of Frisco and even the towns of Silverthorne and Dillon. The rec path is perfect for winter fat biking and can take groups of riders through the most scenic parts of the county. 

For information on where to ride, contact our Beaver Run concierge (970-435-6000) or check out GoBreck's recommendations
For rentals visit Alpine Sports


Summit County is blessed to offer some of the best fishing - year-round - in the area for trout enthusiasts. Beaver Run is conveniently located within a 30-minute drive from many different types of fisheries.

If you're looking for solitude, venture out to one of the many high alpine streams or lakes. The beautiful scenery and bright colors of native cutthroat trout will be sure to make your day worthwhile.
If it's bigger fish that you're after and crowds aren't a big concern, head to the South Platte that flows through neighbboring Park County. It's said that if you can consistently catch trout on the South Platte, you can catch trout anywhere in the world.
Not looking for a drive but looking for 20+" fish hitting your line, check out the Blue River in Silverthorne.

Just remember, the fishing at these popoular tailwaters can be tough! The fish are smart and savvy around here, but keep casting away and you'll have plenty of fish tales, and maybe even a 20" fish that'll make it worth your while. (Remember: Catch & Release and get your fishing license).

Sleigh Rides

Dash through the snow on a sleigh ride this winter. Make your reservations online - in advance.
