After a day of beginner downhill skiing, I decided to come here for calmer snowshoeing. I found a Denver Groupon for $40 for 2 people to get rentals & day pass, usually $80. I convinced another visitor to join me for the deal & enjoyed some solo snowshoeing on the Willow Trail (easy) in the woods & along a mostly... More

Since I don't ski, but like to get outdoors for walks, we decided to visit the nordic center to do some snowshoeing. My husband and I did the blue trail on the first day - it was fine even though I'm not in the greatest shape, we took our time and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and being outdoors. The trails...

Had never been snowshoeing before and found a Groupon for gear and trail pass. Decided to give it a try. Showed up on a Friday morning and found a great staff who were most helpful to a couple of newbies. They explained everything, made sure our gear was the right size and on correctly. They went over maps, trails, rules,... More

We have been visiting Breckenridge for a number of years and have always spent some time at the Nordic Centre as an alternative to alpine skiing. There is a good selection of trails for both Nordic Skiing and Snow-shoeing and there is plenty to keep you going although if you don't have your own transport or are not as technically... More

We were a group of 5 friends arriving in Breckinridge late afternoon and thought we'd missed our chance to have some fun in the snow BUT the staff at the Nordic center were really nice and let us head out onto the trails for an extra half hour. We did the Nordic skiing, really easy heading up slight inclines and... More

Wanted to snowshoe and try cross-country skiing while in Breckenridge last week and stopped in at the Breckenridge Nordic Center up just off Ski Hill Rd. What a fabulous find! Met the owner Gene Dayton and signed up for lessons. Didn't know that our lessons would end up being with his son, Olympic Nordic Combined Anchor Man for 2002 Matt... More

This is one of the best Nordic parks anywhere. They have a beautiful new lodge to get your gear (if you need it) with a huge fireplace and comfortable seating for drinks and light snacks after your exercise. We rented excellent snowshoes and the 2 mile trail we took was beautiful with wonderful views of Breckenridge mountain, and the town... More

I had the BEST Christmas Eve (day) here! I took my 20 year old daughter here to X-country ski for her first time. She loved it! It had just snowed the previous 3 days straight, so we had 30" of fresh powder, on newly groomed tracks. It was the first sunny day we'd seen, and it couldn't have been more... More

3000 acres adjacent to the ski area. Outstanding snow shoeing and cross country skiing. Solitude and views amazing.
