Relax After the Holidays in Breckenridge
January 3, 2022 // by Laurel Coffman
We love the holiday season, but let’s face it, it normally comes with burn out. Now that the holidays are over and your New Year’s resolutions have been set, it’s time to treat yourself to the care you deserve. We’ve covered how to unwind in Breckenridge so rest and relaxation isn’t left off your travel itinerary.
Main Street Breckenridge sits at 9,600 feet and that can be a big adjustment if you’re coming from sea level! Take your time to acclimate and head to the O2 Lounge when you arrive. Choose from 15, 30 and 45 minute sessions or rent an oxygen machine to enjoy from the comfort of your hotel.
For an out of this world experience, try hyperbaric oxygen therapy. At Mountain Air Hyperbarics you’ll be zipped into a chamber that will slowly start to pressurize. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry which in turn can help promote healing, decrease inflammation, improve blood flow and circulation and more.
At Elite IV Lounge, you can choose from a slew of services to restore your body. Try a Myers Cocktail to alleviate muscle fatigue after a day on the mountain or the Altitude IV to help with any altitude sickness symptoms. If you have a little too much fun out on the town you can even select the Hangover IV.
A Breckenridge spa day is a must on the self-care list. Find ultimate relaxation at Infinity Spa at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8. Choose from a variety of body and skin therapies, massage and nail treatments and more. Pre-treatment, take advantage of the Relaxation Room in a digitally controlled lounge chair. Post-treatment, spend all the time you need in the exclusive adults-only grotto equipped with a hot tub, cold plunge, sauna and steam room.
Enjoy a Drink
Stay awhile and let yourself unwind. Sit down and enjoy the best happy hours in Breckenridge or enjoy a hot cup of coffee fireside at one of the best coffee shops in town. For a more immersive experience head to Breckenridge Distillery for a private after-hours tour and tasting.
Move Your Body
Breathe in and breathe out. Meta Yoga Studios offers classes like Yin & Vinyasa, Evening Yoga and even an Après Ski Yoga class to decompress after a day on the snow. Over at Bhava Yoga, opt for a restorative class or the Deep Hips & Hamstrings class and leave feeling rooted and renewed.
There is nothing better than the great outdoors and we have plenty of it here in Breck. Choose your adventure and breathe in the fresh mountain air. Take a winter hike, explore Cucumber Gulch Wildlife Preserve on cross-country skis or snowshoes, or get a thrill snowmobiling in the backcountry.
Main Street has over 200 shops so you can fill your day with the shopping spree of your dreams. Check out some of our favorites and take home a little slice of Breckenridge.
Learn a New Skill
Give yourself the gift of learning! Breckenridge Creative Arts (BreckCreate for short) was developed by the Town of Breckenridge to support and promote arts, culture and creative experiences. At BreckCreate you can choose from a variety of workshops like beginner welding, beginner metalsmithing and even beginner glass blowing.
Now it’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy all the self-care and fun that Breckenridge has to offer! If you’re looking for a relaxing place to stay with luxury amenities, head to our Breck Deals page for more information.
