KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Parking: All Epic Discovery Parking is located in the North Gondola Lot. This lot is now operated by Breck Park. You can park here and pay with a credit card using either an onsite kiosk or their smartphone app. There is no parking located at the Peak 8 base area, all parking is in town. Access Epic Discovery by riding the gondola or bus up to Peak 8.

Getting Here: Access Epic Discovery at Breckenridge by riding the gondola or the bus to Peak 8 from town. The gondola and bus are both complimentary.

The address for the gondola is 170 Watson Ave, Breckenridge CO 80424.

Ticket Pick Up: If you have made an online order for your Epic Discovery tickets/passes, please proceed to the ticket office located within Epic Discovery. Be ready to present your email confirmation.

Sun Protection: At 9,000 feet, exposure to the sun is 40% greater than it is at sea level. We recommend sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 15 or higher, as well as eye protection.

Lightning and Thunderstorms: Afternoon thunderstorms are common in the mountains and may cause interruptions and delays in summer activities and lift operations. Lifts and activities may close on occasion due to weather conditions, causing delays. Take proper precautions when you see or hear a storm developing: seek shelter, keep off ridgelines, and stay clear of chairlift houses, lift towers, power lines, open spaces, lone trees, and signposts.

High-Altitude Environment: If you live at a lower elevation, you may tire more easily. Take it easy at first, plan short trips until you are acclimated and drink plenty of water. Some visitors may experience symptoms associated with Breck’s high altitude. Symptoms may include headaches, nausea, and dizziness, loss of appetite, restless sleep, coughing and difficulty in breathing. If symptoms persist or if you have a concern about your health, you should seek medical attention.

Adequate Clothing: Be aware, mountain weather changes quickly and there is usually at least a 10-degree temperature difference from the bottom to the top of the lifts. Bring a raincoat and consider a sweater or fleece layer. Wear closed-toed, comfortable, sturdy shoes, such as hiking boots or tennis shoes. Hair ties are suggested for shoulder length hair or longer.

Health and Safety Guidelines: Most activities have height, weight, and age requirements. Refer to each activity section to understand any restrictions that may apply. If you are pregnant or have heart, back, neck, or other serious health issues, you should consult a physician prior to participating in any activity. Most activities require guests to be ambulatory and be able walk on their own. Trained service animals are welcome in most locations on Breckenridge Mountain. Although trained service animals are welcome, guests who use service animals must retain control of their animals at all times and should keep them on a leash or harness while visiting. Documenting your vacation is always encouraged; check out our EpicMix Photos upon arrival, however Selfie Sticks are prohibited on our activities.

RAIN CHECK POLICY
Weather in the mountains can change quickly and unexpectedly. We will follow strict weather protocol with guest and employee safety as a top priority. Tickets or passes that are completely unused may be eligible for a refund. If all Epic Discovery activities are closed for 75 minutes or more day passes may be eligible for a replacement.
