Our Advice ~ On Preparing Accordingly For Your Trip To Breck

Getting Around

Getting To ~ And Around Town

  • It's just a couple-hour drive down I-70 West from Denver, but make sure your rent a 4WD vehicle if you’re visiting in winter. Weather conditions on this highway can get rugged very quickly.
  • Be sure to download the CDOT (Colorado Department of Transportation) app on your smartphone before you make the journey. It provides key updates on weather and traffic.
  • If you prefer not to drive, you can take the Colorado Mountain Express from the Denver International Airport.
  • Once you’re in Breck, there are plenty of free shuttles available to get around town and the resort. Just make sure to check with your vacation consultant to make sure it’s accessible from your lodging (Uber is usually available if it is not).

  • Be careful with edible forms of marijuana. Effects are felt long after consumption, typically 1-2 hours later, and it might creep up on you later than you think. If you visit a local dispensary, just ask the staff for guidance on proper use.
  • If need be, medical treatment is available at Breckenridge Medical Clinic or St. Anthony Summit Medical Center.Weather can be rather fickle any time of year, so pack to be prepared for anything – it’s part of the fun.
