The Ultimate Breck Shopping Guide

Wednesday, Nov-18-15When most people think of Breckenridge, mountain sports are usually the first things that come to mind. There’s all types of activities here in the heart of the Rockies, such as: skiing, riding, biking, snowshoeing, hiking, dogsledding, rock climbing, snowmobiling, camping, tubing, skating and….shopping? Yep, shopping! Since mountain towns are often associated with rugged landscapes and harsh conditions, the world class retail therapy opportunities here are often overlooked. But, today’s your lucky day. The BOB staff have compiled the ultimate Breckenridge shopping guide to satisfy every consumer’s palate.

Now that you know what your options are, you should know when is best to buy. If you’re not a skier or rider, we recommend shopping while others are skiing. The shops will be less crowded and you’ll be able to visit more stores quicker between the hours of 10 AM – 3 PM. Otherwise, happy hour is always a good time to get the stores to yourself and enjoy some libations in between transactions.

If you’re shopping for winter gear, the biggest sales happen at the end of the season, so plan to purchase in April, May or June to get the biggest bang for your buck! The same goes for off season gear and apparel- shop at the end of the summer season, and you will find great deals on spring and summer clothing and equipment. There is also a Valentine’s Day Shop Hop coming up on Wednesday, February 11th that not only features gigantic discounts at 25 shops, but also offers snacks and specials along the way, as well as drink specials at Jake’s Dive Bar! Regardless of when you come, the shopping options and fun to be had while browsing are unreal, so get up here and have some fun!!aa
