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 just some of the attractions and activities you can look forward to when you reserve a Pine Ridge condominium in the summer.
Epic Discovery Adventure Park
Epic Discovery activities include a zipline tour, ropes course, interpretive hiking trail and rock-climbing wall, bungee trampoline, roller coaster, alpine slide, scenic chairlift rides, a two-stage zipline, maze, summer tubing, and gemstone panning. More info here.
Trail maps and bike rentals are available at numerous shops around town; many also offer transportation up Vail pass for guests to ride down or to the Lake Dillon trail system. We recommend Christy Sports for Bike Rentals and our Pine Ridge guests do receive a discount on rentals.
