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.

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!

Tubing

If you come to the high country in the winter, you are almost guaranteed to hear about tubing. Tubing has been a family-friendly activity enjoyed by all ages since the 1820s, so it’s no wonder why!

With our closest tubing operations in Frisco and Keystone, it’s as easy as ever to get your family or friends out for some high-speed fun!

The Frisco Adventure Park charges guests $26 per person for a one-hour session. You have the hour to take as many runs as you want and a magic carpet to take you back to the top after every run, so your legs aren’t tired out before the next day of skiing. They are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, so there’s plenty of flexibility to plan your other mountain adventures around this activity. If you are having such a good time that you can’t bring yourself to leave, you may stay an extra hour for $10. Reservations are recommended but not required.

Keystone also offers tubing at Adventure Point. With slightly longer runs and later hours, it’s a perfect option if you have the family out for some classic Keystone night skiing. Keystone is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, with a two-hour closure from 2-4 p.m. Reservations are required. Cost is $33 per person for a one-hour session.

Ice Fishing

Want a relaxing day away from the crowds? Try a fun ice fishing adventure that is suitable for the whole family! You will be surrounded by some of the best mountain views while seated in the middle of iced-over Lake Dillon. Don’t worry about being cold! Your tour guide will have tents set up with windows and space heaters to keep you warm while sitting over the ice.

Try a two-hour trip, or a half-day, four-hour trip with multiple lake access options. Everything for fishing is included, although you will need to provide your own fishing license. You will catch anything from Kokanne Salmon to Arctic Char and Brown Trout to Rainbow Trout. The best part is your guide will fillet the fish right there and send you home with up to 8 Kokanee Salmon and any Rainbow Trout over 14”! It’s a great way to get a fresh seafood dinner that you caught yourself!

Ice fishing isn’t just fun for the guys but fun for everyone! Kids under 12 years old even get to fish for free!  It’s a nice quiet getaway and good quality time for the family. It’s also a good chance to catch dinner. Hurry up while the fish are still biting and book your discounted ice fishing adventure with your Activities Coordinators.
