5 Fun Things for Teenagers to do in Breck

aaa
1. Riding the GondolaThe Gondola is a fun way to see Breck and its nature and also see one of our ski resorts during the summer. It's completely free and has easy access. The gondola stops at two places and you can get off at any of them or you can stay on until you get back. Super fun to go on with friends and family during the summer and even more fun to go on during the winter if you're looking for a way to get up the mountain to ski or snowboard.  2. Downstairs at Eric’s This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to with my friends or family. It offers great food, great service, and a huge arcade room. It’s very affordable and is even owned by our mayor. The arcade room offers many fun games, activities, and at least 15 flat-screen TV’s in the main room....

Celebrate 55 Years of Ullr Fest In Breckenridge, Colorado!It all started back in January of 1963 when a small group of Breckenridge locals were lounging around, enthusiastically reliving their EPIC powder day and arguing over whose run down the mountain was the MOST insane that day. This tight-knit crew of mountain dwelling ski-techs and snowplow drivers didn’t know it at the time, but this night would inspire a tradition that would become an annual highlight of the Breckenridge ski season.As the night progressed, the conversation turned to crazy storms that had been pounding Breckenridge with endless amounts of that glorious Rocky Mountain “Champagne Powder”. The decision was made that night to pay tribute, give thanks and celebrate Ullr, the legendary Norse God of Snow!Who is Ullr? And how do you pronounce it?

Escape Room Breckenridge - A Locals Perspective

Escape Room Breckenridge - A Locals Perspective
I have not participated in the Escape Room experience before, and because of that I found myself uncertain of what to expect and weary that it wouldn’t be fun.  Boy was I wrong!  The Escape Room was a thrill, and I cannot wait to do it again with friends and family!  I would highly recommend the Escape Room as a fun evening activity to accompany dinner or drinks; or as a fun “off-day” activity.  The entire experience takes a little over 1 hour and reservations are highly recommended.  With a short tutorial and 2 minute video your group of 4-6 people is locked in a room (set to a theme) and you are charged to discover and solve clues in order to “escape” the room within 60 minutes.  Its basically CLUE set to real life and its a thrill to work against the clock to solve the mystery.  The Escape Room...

FREE Lake Dillon Kayak Tour - A SkyRun Exclusive
As the summer ramped down, our family had the opportunity to participate in a SkyCard Summer Activity - a Kayaking Tour on Lake Dillon!  I made the reservation through Xplorie and the process was very simple.  Our Xplorie representative was friendly and patiently walked us through the entire reservation process explaining the types of tours, and days and times available.  We reserved a Sunday morning 1.5 Hour Family Tour.  That morning we arrived 15 minutes early to find parking, walk to the docks, sign-in, and get life jackets.  Having never kayaked before I was pleased the Guide did a quick tutorial on how to properly hold and row the oar.  Within minutes, all the families were happily loaded into double kayaks and we were off!   The Lake Dillon Kayak Tour Guide was wonderful - she made everyone feel comfortable and stopped frequently for the group to gather back together.  She...
