What to Expect

Your first time visiting Breckenridge should be an experience you will always remember. We’ve put together a list of hints and advice to help make your trip unforgettable.

Proper Clothing:

Dress for cooler temperatures but be prepared for sudden weather changes. It's colder at higher altitudes and layers of clothing are a good idea. It may feel colder or warmer depending on whether it's windy or cloudy on one hand, or sunny with still air on the other. It's best to dress in layers and wear breathable clothing, such as smart wool that keeps moisture away from the skin.

Ski apparel:

Appropriate dress can make or break your day on the slopes. It is worth investing in a pair of waterproof ski pants as jeans get wet and do not allow enough movement. It is best to dress in layers as temperatures can vary from day to day. A waterproof shell is your best bet for a jacket, with a fleece and under layers for additional warmth. Contrary to popular belief, the thinnest pair of cotton socks is essential in boot comfort, allowing for optimal circulation and boot fit. Additional comfort can be achieved by wearing highly breathable clothing specifically made for winter outdoor activities. Neck gators, hats and face masks are also highly recommended.

Because of the thinner atmosphere and reflection from snow or water, you can sunburn much more easily than most people think. Ultraviolet light is more intense at higher altitudes. At 9600 feet, the sun is 40% stronger than at sea level. Apply sunscreen several times a day and always wear eye protection. Sunglasses or goggles with UV protection are a must. Lip balm/chapstick is also a necessity.


When travelling to a higher altitude it is important to remember a few key things to help you acclimate.

Stay Properly Hydrated: Acclimatization is often accompanied by fluid loss, so you need to drink lots of fluids to remain properly hydrated (at least 3-4 litres per day). 
Avoid tobacco and alcohol and other depressant drugs during acclimation, which can also lead to dehydration. Light Activity during the day is better than sleeping because respiration decreases during sleep, exacerbating Altitude Sickness symptoms.

Symptoms include fatigue, decreased appetite, shortness of breath with minimal exertion, nausea, headache and sleep disturbances. These symptoms are often worse the second day at altitude (but resolve in four to five days). Rest is the key to treating mild forms of altitude sickness.

Stay warm from head-to-toe: It's important to keep warm whenever you are outside in cold and/or windy conditions. Fingers, ears and noses are especially susceptible to the cold. Keep skin covered and warm up frequently. Here in Breckenridge we enjoy over 300 "blue bird" days of sunshine on average per year.


Breckenridge prides itself in being a laid back, casual mountain town. No need to bring your high-heels or dress clothes. Jeans and a sweater/fleece are the norm around here.

Tipping when traveling:

Tipping at a restaurant: 
If you're really pleased with your service, most experts will tell you to tip 20 percent. If you think the service was bad but not terrible, put down 10 percent.

Suggested tipping rates:

  • Airport or train porter: $1-2 per bag
  • Airport wheelchair assistance: $3-5 upon arrival at the gate
  • Courtesy shuttle drivers: $1-2 per bag
  • Hotel bell staff: $1-2 per bag
  • Hotel concierge: $10-20 depending on request, at departure
  • Hotel doorman: no tip, unless they handle luggage or call a cab

Après Ski Australia

Après-skiing (which means: "after skiing") is going out, having drinks, dancing, and generally socializing after skiing. Breckenridge Ski Resort is home to some of the best and unique après spots in the world. After an amazing day on the slopes, thaw-out with friends over drinks at one of Breckenridge’s iconic watering holes.

T Bar: Breck's newest après hotspot, located conveniently at the base of Peak 8. Ski down, toss your gear on one of the racks outside, and walk in to the log mansion-esque bar. The instant soul-warming ambiance goes great with daily specials and live music six days a week. Try a Breckenridge 50th Anniversary Ale.

Ember: offers an intimate bar setting for you to soak in that cosmopolitan meets Colorado mountain town vibe. Bring an adventurous palate to Euphoric Hour where you’ll find global small plates and creative cocktails like the Sexy Woman — a hot sweet concoction of passion fruit and jalapeno-infused vodka.

Sevens: Located slopeside at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, Sevens is the spot for après, lunch or dinner. Stop in for a stone hearth pizza or grab a quick bite at the service window when the snow is just too good to stop.

Breckenridge Brewery: For a relaxed family-friendly atmosphere with craft beers and American fare, check out one of Colorado’s original craft breweries. The Breckenridge Brewery opened in 1990 serving local suds and burgers, Blue River style.

Blue River Bistro: Can’t narrow down which martini to try? It’s OK – Blue River Bistro's twice-a-day happy hour (3:00 to 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. to close) gets you two for one martinis and appetizers. Go ahead and enjoy that acai mint martini and follow it up with a Colorado Sidecar.
