Enjoy the best of Christmas in Summit County!

If you’re hoping to enjoy a white Christmas this year, look no further than the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.  Summit County has been getting steady snowfall over the last few weeks, plus a ton of different activities and events will help put the whole family in the holiday spirit.

In Breckenridge:

Breckenridge Top Mountain TownStart your Breckenridge holiday vacation with a stroll down scenic and historic Main Street.  The quaint shops and restaurants will provide plenty of holiday charm.  Walk, drive, or take a horse-drawn carriage from one end of town to the other.  Then, hit the slopes!  With a range of ski and snowboard rental shops, you’ll be able to easily find the all gear you and your family will need to enjoy the fresh snow.  At the end of the day, catch a live production of A Christmas Carol at the Breckenridge Theatre or the Holiday Concert on December 23rd.

In Keystone:

There’s so much to do during your Keystone holiday vacation that you might have trouble making it to the slopes!  Don’t miss out on the fantastic skiing, but make sure to catch all the holiday-specific fun, as well.  Take in the miniature village sculpted out of 2500 lbs of chocolate, then head to Keystone Lake for the holiday ice show.  After a long day of outdoor fun, relax and enjoy the winter-themed lighting of Keystone Aglow.  Visiting with little ones?  Let them enjoy Kids Night Out and Kidtopia, while the grown-ups enjoy a quiet dinner or some night skiing.  They’ll also enjoy Breakfast with Santa on Christmas Eve.

At Copper Mountain:

Christmas FireworksIf you’ve planned a Copper Mountain holiday vacation, you may have already filled your schedule with skiing, free snowshoe tours, sleigh rides, and snow tubing, but clear your Christmas Eve schedule because Copper’s got you covered with En Fuego.  From bonfires to a mini glowlight parade for the kids not to mention a torchlight parade down the mountain, En Fuego is a great way to enjoy time together as a family.  You’ll even get a visit from Santa, who will light the Christmas Tree and fly down a zipline before a finale of fireworks.

You won’t want to miss out on a Colorado Christmas vacation this year.  Peak 1 Express will shuttle you through the snow to your mountain destination so you can spend more time enjoying the holidays!
