Breckenridge Nordic Skiing

Breckenridge Nordic Skiing

Breckenridge is the ultimate winter destination for not only downhill skiing, but also nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Wake up early for a sunrise snowshoe hike or take the family for a fun day of cross-country skiing through the mountains. Breckenridge offers miles of groomed trails on the Recpath and also has two nordic centers on either side of the town which offer rentals and lessons for everyone. Nordic skiing is a great break from the busy resort and is guaranteed to provide some peace and quiet during your vacation.

Breckenridge Nordic Center

The Breckenridge Nordic Center is located just a couple minutes’ drive from downtown Breckenridge. Explore the 1,400 acres of groomed trails with your family or group. Nordic skiing and snowshoeing is fun for all ages and levels, and rentals and lessons are available for everyone. If the kids can walk, they can learn to ski, and if they are too young to walk, the Breckenridge Nordic Center has “pulk” sleds available that are warm and easy to use so the little ones can come along too! The trails start right out back of the lodge and wind through Breckenridge’s protected Cucumber Gulch Preserve and up into the High Country on New Nordic World under Peaks 6 and 7 for over 30 kilometers. View the pristine forests and mountain views in the winter wonderland. After a big day on the trails, enjoy the food and drink specials and warm up next to the fireplace back at the lodge. The Breckenridge Nordic Center is also a great venue to host events such as weddings and birthdays.
