Breckenridge Opening Day 2018
Posted by Shannon Sinnard | Friday, October 26, 2018


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.


❄ 2018/2019 Opening Day Weekend Schedule of Events :

Wake Up Breck, Thursday November 8 : To kick off the start of Winter and the Ski Season in Breckenridge, several coffee shops around town will offering a free cup of coffee in a free commemorative mug! Beginning at 7am, be sure to  visit one of the participating coffee shops before supplies run out! 

Opening Day, Friday November 9 : Start of your season on the right foot, or should we say ski!? Friday November 9th will mark the beginning of another exciting Ski Season in Breckenridge and with is brings the promise of snowy first laps, a DJ spinning tracks, performances by local musicians and much more! Visitors are encouraged to get here early to catch all the action – chairs are scheduled to start turning at 9am.

The Winter Kickoff, Friday November 9 : To kickoff Winter, take part in a community celebration at the Breckenridge Backstage Theater.
