Colorado fires

Does the Breckenridge area have any fires near it? Is there any smoke in the area at all? Planning on going on vacation in a couple days and just wanted to check.

I am wondering the same thing! I am really getting nervous about our trip to Breckenridge (July 14th-17th) and Denver (July 17th-20th). We booked through One Ski Hill and according to the cancellation policy our trip is non-refundable if we cancel with less than 30 days.

Denver Post is a good source for all things fire in the State:

It has been on/off hazy - but no fires are that close; however with so many fires around the state, the haze is inevitable. If you have asthma or lung issues then you might notice something, especially at our high altitude.

The Treasure fire is southwest of there and is not a threat to Breckenridge. We were there yesterday. There was smoke haze in the air but it wasn't too bad.

"Though Breckenridge residents reported ash blowing into town Saturday, the fire is burning roughly 10 miles south of the base of the Tenmile Range, closer to Alma. Historically, fires that reach upper-mountain elevations and encounter rocky terrain with little to burn don't creep up and over ridges."

There is no ash spreading into Breckenridge. There was a brief period of time on Saturday but that went away by the end of the day. The haze is much less today as well.
