Safety Information

Fire Danger

  • Smoking is prohibited on lifts and is only allowed in designated smoking areas. Report fires immediately via cell phone or on-mountain emergency phones to 970.496.7911.

Sun Protection

  • With every 3,000-foot increase in altitude, UV levels rise by 10%. We recommend eye protection and broad spectrum sun care products to ensure protection from UV rays.

Protect Your Purchaser

  • Your ticket or pass is non-transferable and may not be resold or used by anyone other than the person to whom it was issued. Report lost or stolen passes to resort staff or law enforcement immediately. Resort staff may ask you to show your pass or ticket at any time. Failure to show a valid pass or ticket, or engaging in fraudulent behavior of any kind, may result in loss of resort privileges or criminal prosecution.

Lightening and Thunderstorms

  • Afternoon thunderstorms are common in the mountains. Take proper precautions when you see or hear a storm developing: Seek shelter, keep off ridge lines and stay dear of chairlift houses, lift towers, power lines, open spaces, standalone trees and signposts. Lifts and activities may dose without notice due to inclement weather.

High Altitude Environment

  • If you live at a lower elevation, you may tire more easily at 9,600 feet. Take it easy at first. Plan short trips until you are acclimated and drink plenty of water. Some visitors may experience symptoms associated with Breckenridge's high altitude. Symptoms may include headaches, nausea, 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.

Weather and Terrain

  • YOU ASSUME THE RISK of unpredictable weather, as well as rugged, uneven, irregular and slippery conditions.

Adequate Clothing

  • Be aware that mountain weather changes quickly and there is usually at least a 10 degree temperature difference from the base area to the top of the lifts. Bring a raincoat, wear dosed-toe shoes and consider a sweater or fleece.


  • We welcome sociable, furry friends to Peak 8 Base Camp as long as they are on a leash. For safety reasons, dogs and other animals are not permitted on chairlifts.


  • As we work to improve our mountain offerings for winter and summer guests, you may encounter construction on the mountain and in our base areas. We appreciate your patience with this construction and ask you to observe all marked closures and posted signs. Hiking and biking may be rerouted for maintenance as needed. Refer to guest service personnel at the base of Peak 8 for any construction concerns.

Lift Safety

  • Under Colorado law, you cannot board a lift unless you have sufficient physical dexterity, ability and knowledge to use the lift safely, or until you have asked for and received sufficient information to enable you to use the lift safely. You may not use a lift when under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Please lower the bar when riding lifts.

Multi-Use Trails

  • Be aware that trails and roads at Breckenridge Ski Resort are used for many purposes during the summer. Mountain bikes, hikers, horses, motorized vehicles, construction equipment and others may be encountered at any time.

Aerial Drones

  • Recreational drone use by any guest or member of the public, for any reason, is not permitted on or over Breckenridge Ski Resort.

Marijuana Consumption

  • It is illegal to consume marijuana in public and consumption is not permitted on Breckenridge Ski Resort Property.


  • Breckenridge Ski Resort is part of the White River National Forest and we share the outdoors with many types of local wildlife. Please be aware, exercise caution and observe all wildlife from a distance. Do not feed, approach or harass animals.
