BRECKENRIDGE NORDIC CENTER
Located a half mile from Main Street, the Breckenridge Nordic Center has numerous trails that wind through National Forest Lands. Snowshoers interested in going at their own pace and picking their own destination can choose to embark on a self-guided snowshoe trip. All trails are mapped and clearly marked.
Guided snowshoe adventures are also available. Knowledgeable tour guides lead participants through the wildnerness while discussing local wildlife, ecology, and history. These tours are a great choice for those who want to round out their snowshoeing experience with fascinating information. They are available several times a day and evening snowshoe tours are available by request.
The Nordic Center boasts a new lodge where you can relax after your snowshoeing adventure and enjoy some hot chocolate, a glass of wine, or a bite to eat. And if you don't have your own snowshoes, the Center offers rentals with no reservations required.
