About the Pools

The Breckenridge Recreation Center has two pools and two spas. The Lap Pool is 25' x 75' containing over 100,000 gallons of water. It has 4 lap lanes and a depth range from 3'6" to 8' deep. The temperature is maintained between 81 and 83 degrees. The Leisure Pool is a free form pool containing over 50,000 gallons of water. Depth ranges from 0' to 3'6" to accommodate our smallest swimmers. The Indoor Spa contains 2,100 gallons of water kept at a temperature of 102-103 degrees. The Outdoor Spa contains 2,000 gallons of water and is kept at a temperature of 103 -104 degrees. The Outdoor Spa is for those 16 years of age and older. We are also equipped with an ADA lift to access the indoor pools. A large outdoor deck and grass area with a beautiful view of the Tenmile Mountain Range are located next to the Outdoor Spa. For guests over 16 years of age we also offer a coed Steam Room and Sauna.

*Please remember to bring your own locks for our lockers! Locks are also available for purchase at the Front Desk for a nominal fee.


Family Fun

After getting off the mountain from a day of skiing, or after a strenuous hike, the pools and spas are great places to spend some time with the family. Our Leisure Pool has a two-story slide, the Summit Plummit, that both children and adults can enjoy. A small slide keeps the little ones happy. Other amenities include a lazy river swim stream, basketball hoop and a vortex pool. In addition to four swim lanes, the Lap Pool has a mini rock climbing wall and a rope swing (check schedule below for swing times). If you are here enjoying one of our beautiful summers, come and enjoy "The Beach" which offers a large grassy area as well as lawn chairs for those who just want to enjoy the sunshine.
