Many locals confess, “We came for the winter but we stayed for the summer!”
Summer is a completely different experience for any guest that has visited Breckenridge for a ski vacation. It’s also a refreshing change from summertime most parts of the country – mild temperatures, no humidity and no bugs! Pine Ridge turns to summer mode with abundant trees throughout the property, green lawns and plenty of gas grills and picnic tables. The ski run turns into an easy hiking or mountain biking trail, with a lush wetland along the trail. And with a great central location, walking around town is even easier.
Here are some of the attractions you can look forward to when you reserve a Pine Ridge condominium in the summer:
