It’s official! The Breckenridge Ski Resort is slated to open for the 2018/2019 Ski Season on Wednesday, November 7, 2018!And with nearly 70” of snow having already fallen so far this season, many are hopeful this may be one of the snowiest Opening Days yet! So, to celebrate, the Breckenridge Ski Resort is promising to pull out all the stops with a celebration bigger and better than ever! Starting off the season in style with music, parties, competitions and more, one thing is for sure – no one kicks off a season like Breckenridge.
Although Breck’s opening will come on the heels of other Summit County Ski Resorts, Arapahoe Basin and Keystone, Opening Weekend in Breckenridge is truly a one of kind, fantastic experience that brings in dozens of anxious skiers and snowboarders ready to share their passion (and get a possible Opening Day Themed Epic Mix Pin) with other like-minded snow enthusiasts. Giddy with excitement to ring in the Colorado Winter with fresh tracks on freshly groomed slopes, these skiers and riders alike are eager to get their snow legs back by taking that first long downhill descent on the infamous Four O’Clock Run and remember that glorious burn we all grow so accustomed to by season’s end.
