First Tracks at Breck

Breck First Tracks 2015/16 Winter Season

First Tracks offered to Breck lodging guests

Breckenridge Ski Resort now offers an exclusive opportunity for guests staying in official resort lodging properties. Titled "First Tracks," this program will allow guests staying at the official lodging properties at Breck to access the mountain one hour before it opens to the general public on select mornings mid-December through the end of March. Guests have access to load the QuickSilver SuperChair from 7:30am-7:45am. Once they've loaded that lift, they can ski off of the Mercury SuperChair until the rest of the mountain opens. To participate in First Tracks, connect with the front desk agent of your lodging property.

  • Dec. 16, 2016

No special lodging package purchase is required, but participants must be guests of an official Breck lodging property (Mountain Thunder Lodge, One Ski Hill Place, Crystal Peak Lodge, The DoubleTree by Hilton Breckenridge, The Village Hotel and The Village at Breckenridge) at the times the weekly events occur, and must also hold a valid Breck lift ticket or season pass in order to participate as well as calling 1-800-633-8388 to make a reservation.

ALL First Tracks participants need to be intermediate level skiers or above.
Events will start at either the Quicksilver SuperChair or Colorado SuperChair and guests will ski and ride to the Mercury SuperChair, offering access to intermediate terrain. No green runs are accessible, so skiers and riders need to be intermediate level or above.

*Please note – First Tracks is only available to guests who book one of our properties directly through Breckenridge Ski Resort. Any guest that books through a third party will not be granted early access to the mountain*

In the event of weather implications: Weather will be monitored 24 hours in advance for adverse conditions. If temperatures look to be in the negatives (below 0 degrees F), we will cancel First Tracks. Front Desks will be notified.
