About:

For the first time since the mid-’90s, Breckenridge Ski Resort will be staying open through Memorial Day! With over 1,000 acres of terrain open on Peak 6, 7 and 8, you can slash slushy turns in the sunshine all day long! Along with epic spring skiing, the resort has planned fun games and activities at the Bud Light Beach (including snow volleyball and beach games), live music during the Bud Light Music Series, rail jam competitions, a mobile music experience with the Red Bull DJ Cat and more! Grab your sunglasses and let the spring shenanigans begin!

Terrain & Lift Operations:

Thanks to our record-breaking season (more than 35 feet of snowfall to date!) and excellent spring snow conditions, Breckenridge Ski Resort is now one of the longest running ski seasons of any major resort in the country.

During Breck’s Spring Finale the resort plans to offer approximately 1,000 acres of skiing and riding, with access to intermediate-, advanced- and expert-level terrain on Peaks 6, 7 and 8, while conditions allow. Operations will be based out of Peak 7 (NOT Peak 8), with access to skiing and riding on intermediate groomers and high alpine terrain via the Independence SuperChair, T-Bar, 6-Chair, Imperial Express (the highest chairlift lift in North America), Zendo and Kensho chairs.

*Please be advised that there will be no beginner terrain available during Breck’s Spring Finale.
