Winter Time trail conditions.


Winter is here and there’s nothing to limit you from enjoying all of Breckenridge’s wonderful trails for any activity you chose: x-country skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking or hiking. Some trails are more heavily-used than others and have better paths through the snow. Winter trail conditions may vary due to many factors: recent storms, temperature, aspect and trail use. Please be prepared for your high altitude activity.
