It’s that time of year again in Summit County… The ski slopes are closed (except a couple at Arapahoe Basin), the snow is melting and you’d better make sure you’re wearing some rain boots for the next couple weeks. Despite the negative reputation that it’s gained, mud season can actually be one of the most enjoyable times of year here.
Spring in Breck is characterized by crazy weather that can quickly go from sunny in the high 50s to freezing rain, which makes shopping an ideal activity to enjoy, especially since this time of year is way less crowded and there are many deals to be had. Stores are trying to get rid of old inventory and make room for new merchandise.
Some of our favorite stores in Breckenridge are having unreal deals that you shouldn’t miss out on. Sun logic is offering up to 40% off of a ton of their inventory, as well as two-for-one beanies. Mountain Angler is also selling off their winter inventory at 40% off while supplies last. Beloved Boutique runs weekly specials that vary, with 15% off storewide currently. Shirt Off My Back is a great spot to get souvenirs and Breckenridge gear, and they are currently running 50% off of some of their inventory.

On top of the awesome shopping deals, dining out in Breck is an equally awesome mud season pastime, due to two-for-one dinner specials. The Breckenridge Spring 2016 Dining Passport runs from April 18 through June 9. It costs $10, which is put towards a scholarship fund and you will quickly make that money back with all of the deals and information that can be found inside the passport. Some of our favorites include Hearthstone Restaurant’s two-for-one dinner entrées, Downstairs at Eric’s kids eat for free deals and Briar Rose’s two-for-one entrees when you purchase a bottle of wine. Make sure to call ahead, as many businesses do close for a couple of days during this period of time.
To all of the naysayers out there who think that mud season is a less than ideal time of year to be in Breck, we hope you will reconsider after reading this blog. Aside from the awesome shopping and remarkable dining deals, there’s still a ton of fun things to do outside, too. Check out this blog for more details on mud season activities!
