what to do after skiing

Breck, CO

You came for the skiing, but decided to stay an extra day, week, year or even decade for our other activities.

Here's a list of some of our favorite non-skiing activities at Breck: 

Stroll down Main Street

Take a leisurely walk down Main Street, one of the largest historic districts in the state, and soak in the mountain town vibe, historical sights and architectural charm. With more than 200 shops, restaurants and eateries, bring your appetite and save some room in your luggage for a Breck T-shirt, hat or even some handcrafted items that were made right here in Breck.

Après in Breck

Once you've challenged yourself on the slopes, it's time to kick off those boots and say cheers. Après is legendary in Breck. The T-Bar, located at the base of Peak 8, is consistently ranked as one of the best après-ski spots in the country. Check it out and then head into town for dinner or a stroll down Main Street.

Cross-country Skiing, Snowshoeing or Fat Biking

If you're taking a day off from the slopes but still want fresh air, rent a pair of cross-country skis or snowshoes (or even backcountry touring gear if you've taken an avalanche safety course). The Gold Run Nordic Center or Breckenridge Nordic Center are great options for beginners. Or, try fat biking. Rent a bike with fatter tires than a normal mountain bike and hit the streets or packed-down trails. Just check to make sure fat bikes are allowed before you go.

Take a Class or See a Show

The Breckenridge Arts District is not just a must-see, it's a must-do. Check out the Breck Create schedule of activities, classes and events. Sign up for a painting, pottery or even dance class. Get tickets for a play at the Backstage Theater or catch your favorite movie at the Speakeasy Theater. And don't miss our signature cultural events like the International Snow Sculpture Championship and Fire Arts Festival.
