Unforgettable fun as YOU mush a team of Huskies in the Colorado Rocky Mountains!

Imagine mushing through a forest of beautiful spruce trees while being pulled by Siberian Huskies (and maybe a few furry kisses in between). Breckenridge offers some of the best dog sledding in Colorado, which is a great way to get out into the backcountry surrounding Breckenridge and enjoy the serene nature of a winter forest. Breckenridge dog sledding combines history and adventure to make this activity a truly unique family-friendly experience.


Good Times runs a 6-mile tour along the winding trails of the Swan River Valley. Professional guides will lead you through this winter wonderland and give you a full tutorial on how to run the sled and work with the Siberian Huskies. Tours can handle up to 6 people and run as a relay. Guests will switch off between mushing the dogs, riding in the dog sled, and riding on a small passenger sleigh in front of the husky team with the guide. Take the time riding in the sleigh to take photos of your group and take in the scenery.

If you can, try to get there a little early for some solid doggy cuddle time. These dogs love to run and love people. Be prepared for some wet kisses and eager barks!


Dressing for dog sledding is very similar to dressing for skiing. Wear layers that you can leave in the sled if you heat up on a sunny day or add on once you start whisking through the trees. Protect your eyes and hands for not just comfort, but also safety purposes. You’ll be gripping metal, and sun and wind can do a number on unprotected eyes. Winter boots, goggles or sunglasses, gloves and neck warmers are highly recommended. If you didn’t bring gear with you, simply rent the gear once you get there. 

Book your Dog Sledding adventure today!


* There is a weight limit of 300 pounds on the dog sled at a time.
** Due to the nature of this activity the minimum age for children is 5 and for safety reasons pregnant women are not allowed on tours.

Scenic Snowcat Tours

Enjoy a Snowcat Adventure like you’ve never experienced before!

Experience Breckenridge’s scenic trails from the comfort of a heated snowcat! The Breckenridge Nordic Center scenic cat tour offers guided tours through forested trails to a historic mining cabin to fill up on s’mores, hot cocoa and tales of Breckenridge’s mining families.


Arrive early to the Breckenridge Nordic Center to enjoy an adult beverage or hot cocoa next to one of the best fireplaces in Breckenridge.  Then, you’ll head outside to embark on your scenic snowcat tour. Take note, this isn’t your average snowcat.  This is a luxurious, state of the art Prinoth Snowcat designed by Pinifarina in Italy. It features a heated, all-glass cabin to give you uninterrupted views of the historic legend forest, mountains, and wildlife. Halfway through the tour, you’ll stop at a historic cabin for s’mores and hot chocolate.  The unbeatable views make it a perfect spot for family photos.  There are also sleds and toboggans to take out if your family wants to take a few runs down the trail.  After your hot cocoa break, you’ll head back into the snowcat and back to the Breckenridge Nordic Center.


You’ll be nice and toasty in the heated cat, so be sure to dress in layers so you can take your coat and hat off if you get too warm.  You don’t need to wear snowpants unless you plan to jump on a sled at the cocoa stop.  Wear sturdy shoes as you’ll walk short distances to the cat and cabin.

The Breckenridge Nordic Center is only offering Private Tours at this time.

$700 for up to 8 people.

Snowcat Adventures are available 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm most days of the week. Call 970-453-6855 for reservations or click below to book now. These fill up fast so be sure to book in advance!


Nordic/Cross Country Skiing

Nordic Skiing dates back more than five millennia ago, when Scandinavians strapped on skinny skis as their main form of transportation during the winter. This type of skiing wasn’t designed for the rush of the downhill, but a practical way to travel across the country over snow (hence, Cross-Country Skiing). Today, Nordic skiing, or Cross Country skiing, is one of the most popular winter activities in Breckenridge.

To experience this winter hiking tradition firsthand, visit one of Breckenridge’s two Nordic centers, take a guided tour, or take on the trails yourself! Each Breckenridge Nordic Skiing center showcases breathtaking terrain and provides lessons and rentals for those who want to try a little touring.

Breckenridge boasts more than 50 kilometers (30 miles) of perfectly manicured cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails between the town’s two Nordic Centers. If exploring some historic mining ruins on your own is more your style, the Breckenridge trail system offers hundreds of miles of ungroomed trails to explore.

Want to unwind from the slopes?


There is plenty to see and do around Breckenridge. 

Boreas Pass Road

Boreas Pass Road is a lovely way to get a drive through the scenic mountains of Colorado. The high mountain pass spans 22 miles and goes from Breckenridge all the way to Como, Park County. The summit of the pass peaks at 11,481 feet above the level of the sea! The road is also part of the gorgeous Continental Drive.

For a long time, Boreas Pass Road was called Breckenridge Pass. Here, during the gold rush, prospectors would take this route as they traveled. Later on, in 1872, it would become a railroad pass for narrow-gauge locomotives. You can even spot the leftover remains of the now-closed Boreas Station while you drive. This railroad operated until 1938!

There are other Breckenridge attractions scattered throughout Boreas Pass Road: museums, mines, campsites, ghost towns, and more provide exciting ways to engage with local history.

You can also head into the forested areas for a picnic, to camp, or simply to stretch your legs and explore.

Boreas Pass Road is a haven for mountain bikers, and in the winter, winter sports-lovers gather here to use the slopes.

The Tenmile Range and the Blue River Valley can be seen in all their glory from Boreas Pass Road.

Main Street

Main Street is a historic part of Breckenridge, impressively maintaining a century’s worth of charm.

It is filled with points of interest, with genuine hundred-year-old buildings dating back to Colorado’s gold mining rush.

The frontier, Wild West influence is certainly clear. It’s like stepping back into the past to 1859!

Over 200 fun shops call Main Street their home, many of which sell handmade or locally produced items and trinkets.

There are outfitters and rental stores for snow sports equipment, souvenir shops, eateries, bars, boutiques, and other trendy stores, too.

If the high altitudes of the town have been getting to you, there’s a nice O2 Lounge to unwind at and get some oxygen.

Country Boy Mine

Once upon a time, Country Boy Mine was among Breckenridge’s biggest gold mining operations.

At its peak in 1881, it was also one of the famous mines in this part of Colorado.

It no longer operates now, but its available tours are among the coolest things to do in Breckenridge! It’s even won awards for how interesting those experiences are.

Tours of Country Boy Mine bring you over a thousand feet down through the mines. The tight space gives you insight into what it was like for miners to work in these tunnels. Numerous exhibits allow you to learn more about mining, displaying old equipment and artifacts.

There are various other forms of entertainment at Country Boy Mine aside from their tours.

You can feed or pet donkeys, pan for genuine gold, and even slide down an ore chute running 55 feet in length. A general store sells all manner of vintage and old-fashioned books, candy, and toys. You can even buy some cool rocks, go on treasure hunts, explore outdoor escape room experiences, and wander private trails.

In addition to all of that, Country Boy Mine offers a special experience that teaches the history of the town. The interactive historic gold town even lets you visit a town Marshall and participate in a “bank robbery”.

At certain times of the year, there are monster truck hay rides, Finnish army snowcat rides, and wood sleds to use on the mountains.
