The Town of Breckenridge is located 9,603 feet above sea level in a U-shaped valley on the western slope of the Continental Divide. In 2009, the Town celebrated its 150th anniversary. The Town boasts world-class amenities for residents and visitors alike. Your day can be filled with everything from a class in the Arts District, to a yoga class at our Recreation Center, to a ski at the Gold Run Nordic Center, to a concert at the Riverwalk Center, to a game of hockey at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena, to a play performed by the Backstage Theatre- the possibilities are endless. Of course, the Breckenridge Ski Resort continues to be one of the most visited amenities in Breckenridge. But summer is not to be forgotten. Locals always say, "I came for the winters and stayed for the summers." The Town also proactively supports the needs of residents through an affordable housing program and support of childcare facilities. And the Open Space and Trails programs in Breckenridge provide unparalleled access to the natural beauty of Breckenridge year-round.
