With the great snowfall we have had this season there are a verity of activities available to you.

Hit the slopes: Enjoy all the terrain that is open in Breckenridge and the newly opening Peak 7 and Imperial Express! For more information on what terrain is open go here. Need rentals to hit the slopes? Not problem. Check out all the BGV Owner discount options available to you here.

Cross Country Ski or Snowshoe: Enjoy a sunny day at the Breckenridge Nordic Center. Cross country skiing or snowshoeing are a great family activity and have a much smaller price tag in comparison to the ski hill. For more information go here. Grand Timber Lodge is also offering a guided snowshoe hike at 11:00am on Saturday, December 6th. For more information on this guided snowshoe hike go here.

Go Tubing: Tubing is another great family activity that is perfect for all ages. The closest tubing hill is at the Frisco Adventure Park, but for a bit more of an adrenaline rush we would recommend  Keystone Adventure Point. It is recommended to make reservations in advance for both locations.
