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. Contact your Activities Coordinators at activities@breckenridgegrandvacations.com for more information or to book your trip today!

Snowshoe Hikes

ss_famundergondola12Summit County is full of awe-inspiring trails that will take your breath away! Whether that’s because of the elevation you will be at or the views you will see is another story.

Grand Timber Lodge, Grand Lodge on Peak 7, and Grand Colorado on Peak 8 have trails right outside their back doors. Strap on your snowshoes and be prepared to have a peaceful adventure walking through our local majestic woods.

The Select Ten trail from Grand Timber offers an hour-long loop winding up to the Sawmill Reservoir located above the property. Scenic photo spots abound as you take in your surroundings.

The Peaks Trail, a minute’s walk from Grand Lodge on Peak 7 and a five-minute walk from Grand Colorado, is an eight-mile trail connecting Breckenridge to Frisco. This moderate difficulty trip skirts the base of the Ten Mile mountain range, allowing wonderful views as well as more intimate close quarters in the forest. This can be done as an out and back excursion or as a full day trip in which you can take advantage of the county-wide free bus transportation (Summit Stage) to get you back from Frisco.

Nordic centers in Summit County also offer amazing groomed trails for a small fee. Our Activities departments are always happy to recommend more options, as there are many trails available in Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon, and Silverthorne!
