Fresh Air and Mountain Vibes Are Still Alive in Breckenridge

By: Lisa Pogue Blake 07/14/20

The mountains are nothing short of glorious and Breckenridge is welcoming visitors back this season in the safest ways possible.

Town officials have diligently put safety precautions into place to ensure your well-being. As a local tourism pillar, Breckenridge Grand Vacations is committed to navigating this pandemic with the utmost care. We invite you to join us in controlling and curbing the spread of COVID-19. Here’s what to expect:

Walkable Main Street

Breckenridge closed a large section of Main Street to vehicular traffic in June, creating a safe pedestrian-friendly thoroughfare that makes it easy to stay six feet apart. The temporary open-air walking mall allows social distancing beyond Breckenridge’s historic sidewalks, while opening up expanded outdoor seating for restaurants. All the same wonderful Main Street shopping and dining experiences are here—there’s just more space to roam.

Restaurants are operating at reduced occupancy to ensure distanced dining—reservations are highly recommended—and shops monitor capacity for safety as well. Tip: Enjoy your beer or cocktail al fresco on a restaurant patio (open containers are still prohibited while walking Main Street.)

Lodging Safety

Breckenridge Grand Vacations has set the gold standard when it comes to prioritizing the health, safety and well-being of our owners, guests and employees. We’re offering curbside check-in and luggage UV sanitizing upon arrival. Safety protocols are posted in all public spaces, furniture has been re-arranged to maximize social distancing and protective barriers have been installed at the Concierge and Front Desks.

Each residence is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, using PURO™ UV Disinfection Lighting. This hospital-grade technology is capable of killing 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. Breckenridge Grand Vacations is proud to be the first in the hospitality industry to implement this technology.

High touchpoints, such as door handles, are cleaned and sanitized hourly and all amenities, restrooms, elevators and other public spaces are cleaned on a more frequent basis.

Also, please realize amenities may be limited and/or require advanced reservations.

Open-Air Fun

Summer fun meets social distancing naturally in Breckenridge. Quench your thirst for trails and mountaintops, rivers and wildflowers, brilliant blue skies and crisp high country air right outside your front door. With miles upon miles of hiking, skiing and biking trails and cool quiet forests to explore, it’s simple to safely adventure with your small group.

Walkable Main Street

In the summer, Breckenridge Ski Resort is open with its famous alpine slide, scenic chair lift rides, hiking and Gold Runner Coaster. Craving some action? Whitewater rafting, paddle-boarding, fly fishing, mountain biking, horseback riding and summer dog sledding are all on tap this season. In the winter, join in the socially distanced mountain fun with skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing in small groups. Breckenridge Ski Resort’s five sprawling peaks make it easy to spread out.
