Dropping temperatures means winter is right around the corner. While Breckenridge is stunning any time of year, winter is one of the seasons where this Colorado town really shines. There’s no better place to call home on your winter escape than Pine Ridge Condominiums, known for its ski-in location. Not only does this mean you are close to some of the best ski hills in town, but other fantastic Breckenridge winter activities are right at your doorstep, including snowshoeing.
Plan Your Snowshoeing Adventure
Before heading out on your adventure, you need to make sure you have the right equipment. Places like Ridden Gear and Christy Sports offer snowshoe rentals, which means you don’t have to worry about trying to pack your own. You’ll also want to make sure you dress in layers.
When you have all your gear, it’s time to choose a trail to explore. Breckenridge has more than 30 miles of manicured trails and even more miles of ungroomed trails, which means plenty of stunning scenery to explore.
Breckenridge Nordic Center
The Breckenridge Nordic Center offers a guided adventure that lasts just over an hour. During your outing, learn about the town’s history from your knowledgeable guide. If you’d rather set off on your own, you can work your way along the marked trails anytime from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can also add rentals to your booking.
Gold Run Nordic Center
Both beginner and experienced snowshoers will love the trails found at the Gold Run Nordic Center. Make memories as you explore the several miles of groomed trails before warming up by the fireplace at the clubhouse. This spot also offers on-site rentals.
South Illinois Creek Trail
Found close to downtown, the 1.9-mile out-and-back trail starts at South Illinois High and leads to a stunning overlook of town. Make your excursion a bit longer by hitting up the Southside Trail on your way back.
