Family Winter Vacation in Breckenridge

Planning a ski trip with the family? Everyone knows that Breckenridge, Colorado, is home to world-class skiing. But, bring the family to ski Breckenridge, and you’ll discover an historic town with exciting things to see and do for a truly memorable family vacation this winter.

Breckenridge began during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1859 when prospectors entered what was then part of Utah Territory. Today there are relics of the town’s mining days for visitors to see, and mine shafts 1000 feet into the ground to tour. The Country Boy Mine conducts tours in winter, with reservations. The Heritage Alliance has recently renovated a log cabin that was built in 1875, which features fun interactive exhibits and a small viewing room with a film about Breckenridge’s exciting historic first days. They also offer winter tours of the town, with reservations.

And there’s more fun waiting for your family outdoors. Dog Sledding – yes, you can actually ride on one! What a unique experience for the entire family! Ice Skating – both indoor and outdoor. You can glide (or attempt gliding!) on two indoor rinks, or on Maggie’s Pond. Ever tried snowshoeing? There’s a trick to it! Lessons, and rentals, are available at two Nordic centers, each with groomed paths. Then there’s wild sledding down the famous hill at Carter Park.

How about snowmobiling on a guided tour to a ghost town? And you won’t believe this – Fly Fishing in the winter! Guided trips are available. What better way to finish up the day than with a dinner Sleigh Ride! To the joyous jingling of the horse’s bells you ride to a camp where dinner is cooked over a camp stove while musicians entertain you. If you want that to be a romantic ride, you can send the youngsters to “Kids’ Night Out!” for some fun on their own.

All of this, plus exhilarating skiing, and you’ll be ready to head “home” for rest and relaxation. The best type of lodging for this is a timeshare. Renting a timeshare gives your family space to really sprawl out because you get multiple bedrooms, and a living room. A fully-equipped kitchen is also included, and all of this for a cost that can be a fraction of hotel rates. See these Breckenridge Timeshare Resorts for a listing of timeshares available for rent. Have family fun this winter.

    I completely fell in love with Breckenridge the first time I visited. When we got our Cancun timeshare, we went to Breckenridge on an exchange. Can't wait to go back again.

    Breckenridge is the only place to go as far as we're concerned. Fantastic skiing and really great other activities for families such as the dog sled ride. We always rent a timeshare through at the Valdoro Mountain Lodge.
