We woke this morning with snow on the ground, contrasting beautifully with the las colors of fall.

It’s Happening… Winter officially kicks off in Breckenridge

 

Over the past few days there has been humidity in the air, dusting of snow on the peaks and a blowing wind of change. After an absolutely stunning fall full of warm colors, the only color that has been on minds of residents, visitors and those waiting for winter has been white. Although the day started out with clear skies, a front blew in quickly and with it, the first snow to reach town touched down.

If your mind hasn’t been thinking forward towards winter, it’s hard to imagine that it isn’t now. The slopes have been blanketed with snow and snow making machines around the county began to fire up this weekend in preparation of the upcoming winter season. Breckenridge Ski Resort plans to open on November 12, 2021 with other resorts around the county aiming sooner, some even for an October start!

Breckenridge’s First Dusting of Snow for Winter 21/22

The leaves have begun to change here in Breckenridge – yellows, oranges, and reds all beginning to burn bright in the aspen groves flanking Breckenridge and the Tenmile range. On the morning of September 20th,  another color made an early appearance – white!

Snow didn’t only blanket the tops of peaks, but trace amounts made it down to the streets and rooftops of the Victorian houses lining Ridge and High streets.

By the afternoon, most of the snow had melted off except for just the tip of the mountains, but the chill in the air remained. This snow really welcomed in fall in Breckenridge, but also reminded us that winter is quickly approaching.
