Spring has sprung in Breckenridge and there could not be a more perfect time to visit. With over 100″ of snow in March so far, and 350″ of snow for the season, the snow is primed for one of the best spring skiing seasons ever!
Spring is also when Breckenridge really ramps up its off piste activities with festivals, parties, and a lot of fun in the sun. Below is our guide to the best things to do in Breckenridge this spring.
