Nine Things to do During Mud Season

The slopes are closed, the snow is melting and town is quiet. Don’t let the change in season deter you from a trip to Breckenridge. There is still plenty to do and no crowds to fight. Take a look at some of our recommended mud season activities!

Fat Biking

Ridden Fat Bike Tour

Summit County is full of activities to keep you moving throughout the year. In Breckenridge, fat bikes can keep you riding no matter how much snow there is! Fat bikes have oversized tires that give the bike more surface area and grip on unstable surfaces such as snow, mud or sand.  Whether you’re a first timer or a biking enthusiast, fat bikes can be a new thrill on an old concept.

Breckenridge is home to world class mountain biking trails, many of them accessible to winter recreationists looking to hang up their skis for a day and experience the exhilaration of fat biking. Many local shops, such as Breck Bike Guides, offer half-day or full-day independent fat bike rentals. They will advise you on which trails to try them out on, or you can plan a custom tour and they will lead the way.

For the adventurous spirit looking for a unique fat biking experience, Ridden offers fat bike excursions to the Broken Compass Brewery or Breckenridge Distillery. Enjoy a 3.5-mile downhill ride on a carbon fiber fat bike to either location, then learn about brewing or distilling as you tour the facility and enjoy a libation. When you’re ready, Ridden will provide return transportation back into town.

For more information on fat biking, please contact your Activities Desk.

Breckenridge Nordic Center

Want to try an alternative to the downhill slopes? Take advantage of Breckenridge’s very own Nordic ski center! Located conveniently down the road from the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, the center offers 1,400 acres of groomed trails for you to enjoy. Get a great workout while enjoying the beautiful views of our Cucumber Gulch Wildlife Preserve.

On the Nordic Center’s trails, you can enjoy both classic cross country skiing or snowshoeing. You can even hike toward some local huts like the Hallelujah Hut and Kathy’s Viewpoint Cabin/Sauna. These log cabins are a fantastic way to add adventure to your hike!

If you have never tried cross country skiing or snowshoeing, the Nordic Center also offers lesson and adventure tours. They provide rentals, lesson, food and spectacular views of the mountains. The Nordic Center is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Check out its trails – maybe you will even see some Colorado wildlife!
