Although Breckenridge is a year-round resort, it is best known as a ski resort and therefore the main season is winter.
Breckenridge’s elevation at 9,600 fet allows for the 70 degree temperatures in the summer and the 300 inches of snow in the winter. On the other hand, the elevation can affect people in different ways. Visitors to Breckenridge should be aware of the elevation and make sure to always wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and limit the consumption of alcohol and caffeine. If symptoms such as headache, nausea, lethargy or shortness of breath persist, visitors should seek immediate medical attention.
