BRECKENRIDGE NORDIC CENTER
At the Breckenridge Nordic Center, you can take your pick of over 18 miles of ski trails. Whether you're looking for an easy trail or one that requires a bit more exertion, you're sure to find what you're looking for. Trails wind through National Forest lands and each trail is clearly marked. There are three warming huts on the trail system that make great mid-day destinations and offer beautiful views.
