Spending the festive season out in Breck will make for a magical experience for anyone lucky enough to be there. The Victorian architecture provides the perfect Dickensian backdrop for the spectacular Christmas lights and trees that have graced the town in the past. With the season usually in full swing by the end of December (lifts tend to open at the beginning of November) and an amazing resort altitude of nearly 3,000m, you’re usually guaranteed amazing snow. This makes for a picturesque white Christmas, and much more fresh snow than many of the European resorts.
The active après scene will more than support those looking to enjoy a merry Christmas from the bar, with Liquid Lounge’s live DJs and renowned cocktails at Cecelia’s Martini Bar to warm you from the inside. See if Breckenridge Brewery is still making its amazing Christmas Ale, a potent beer perfect for warming you on Christmas day. There are a number of restaurants in town for those who’d prefer a more memorable sit down meal, such as Hearthstone Restaurant, which prides itself in ethically produced ingredients to make its exquisite dishes.
Previous Christmases have featured husky sledding and sleigh rides, with Santa also making appearances, making this a brilliant place to bring the family. The 203 shops allow for that all important late Christmas shopping, to ensure that all your wants are met in the run up to the big day.
A number of our hotels usually provide special dinners or buffets on the day itself, so you can experience a beautiful Christmas dinner without having the trouble of leaving the complex. We also have condos and chalets for those wanting to spend the day with family or friends for a more intimate Christmas.
