While many dream of sunshine and beach vacations during spring break, others prefer a cloudless sky against snow covered mountain peaks.

With outdoor festivals, white water rafting, skiing, and plenty of sunshine, there are endless reasons to choose Breckenridge for a perfect mountain getaway in the spring.

Here are a few of Hilton Grand Vacations favorite springtime Breckenridge activities.

Events and Festivals

  • St. Patrick’s Day Celebration. Breckenridge Brewery gives itself an Irish makeover and hosts a variety of Irish festivals in honor of St. Patty’s Day. 
  • Breck Pride. Breck Pride will host daily parties, on-mountain guided tours, and LGBT celebrations all week long.
  • Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival. The Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival is one of the coolest spring events in the Colorado Rockies, featuring brews, views, and free live music.
  • Imperial Challenge. The Imperial Challenge is a unique psuedo-triathlon. Ride your bike 6 miles from the Breckenridge Rec Center to the base of Peak 7 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort. Ascend on your choice of gear to the top of Peak 8. 


Aside from world-class skiing and snowboarding, there are so many different things to do in Breckenridge.  

  • Snowmobiling. Guided tours begin on trails winding through snow-covered forests as you climb toward the high alpine bowls and meadows of the Continental Divide. 
  • Zip Line Tours. With the Colorado Adventure Center you can experience one of the highest, longest, and most exhilarating high tower zip line tours in Colorado. Climb the sky high 65-foot towers then soar across eight separate zip lines for nearly a mile of zooming thrills.
  • Breckenridge White Water Rafting. Also affiliated with the Colorado Adventure Company, you can raft Clear Creek – the most convenient white water rafting trip in Breckenridge.
  • Historic ATV Tour on the Continental Divide.Take a guided ATV tour to enjoy the rich history of Camp Hale, where the 10th Mountain Army Division trained, and the Continental Divide.
  • Horseback Riding. On a Breckenridge Stables trail ride, you’ll explore the beautiful mountain scenery between Peaks 9 and 10 on the Ten Mile range above Breckenridge.

Entertainment + Nightlife

During your stay in Breckenridge, you’ll have just as much fun off the mountain as you would with your skis or snowboard.

  • Breckenridge Distillery. Take a free behind the scenes tour of Breckenridge Distillery and learn the art of distilling spirits, and taste their classic vodka, gins, and bourbon. 
  • Continental Divide Winery. Run by two families, Continental Divide is the highest altitude winery in the world. Crafting and aging wines at more than a 10,000-foot altitude minimizes oxygen exposure and allows the true flavors of the fruit and land to come through.


Visitors to Breckenridge won’t run out of options for a great dining experience. The town offers a fantastic foodie scene. 

  • Hearthstone. Hearthstone is a Breckenridge classic, featuring naturally raised beef and game, sustainably caught seafood, and in-season Colorado produce.

Their dining room offers a rustic-chic atmosphere. There is also the historic back-bar – the centerpiece of the lively saloon.
  • SouthRidgeSeafood Grill.A local Breckenridge favorite, SouthRidge Seafood Grill, offers fresh seafood with a stunning view. Dine inside or outside on the spacious 60-seat deck.
