Alpine Camp

The Highest of High Alpine Summer

Get up, up and away from it all! At Breck, High Alpine summer gets even higher when you hop on the Colorado SuperChair for a scenic ride up to visit our Alpine Camp.

Sitting at a whopping 11,000 ft above sea level, Alpine Camp offers panoramic views of our beautiful town and surrounding mountains on top of unforgettable summer experiences. It’s a great way to cool off, get away from the hustle and bustle and see the sights from an incredible bird's eye view.

You can go to even greater heights and test your skills on the Gold Summit Climbing Wall or the Alpineer Challenger Course. Or take a hike or a bike and check out the scenery. No matter what you’ll be lifted shifted higher than the ceiling, and oooh-wee it’s the ultimate feeling!



Up High and Feeling Fly


The best way to explore the high alpine in the summertime is with an Alpine Camp Pass, which offers you unlimited, all-day access to all our Alpine Camp Epic Discovery activities. This includes your scenic ride on the Colorado SuperChair that accesses Alpine Camp, plus full-day access to the Gold Summit Climbing and Alpineer Challenger Course.

Kick it up a notch further and challenge yourself on our Gold Summit Climbing Wall. This massive, 40-foot-tall feature offers 16 distinct routes that will challenge all ability levels, whether you’re just getting your foot holds or you’re a climbing wall pro. And, just next door, find another high alpine adventure activity with our Alpineer Challenge Course. Harness up and test your balance and agility as you make your way through a variety of elevated, natural features including swinging logs, ropes, cargo nets and bridges.

Remember: you need to be wearing close-toed shoes for these activities! Visit our ticket office for more information and to purchase!



Wildflowers Horseshoe Bowl 001

Ok, I'm up what?

If you want to keep your two feet on the ground, there’s plenty of ways to enjoy the high alpine scenery. Take a hike on top of the world and take in 360 views without a lot of major elevation gain on our scenic trails.

The Horseshoe Bowl Hiking Loop is a one-mile moderate hike that becomes a super bloom field of wildflowers in mid-summer (Note: wildflower season varies year-to-year based on weather, snowmelt and rainfall, but generally July is primetime). Please take only pictures or memories and be sure not to pick the flowers so that they can continue to come back year-after-year! If you're looking for a solid hike up high, this one's for you.

The Interpretive Hiking loop is a gentle walking trail where you’ll enjoy our high alpine and learn a thing or two along the way! Complete with an Observation Tower, photos, fun facts, interactive activities and more, you can discover more about Breck, our wildlife and environment while experiencing it for yourself.

To get to these hikes, just hop on the Colorado SuperChair and follow the trail signs.
