We can all feel it, the calm after the spring break tourism storm. We’ve paid our dues: battling traffic, long lines, and crowded slopes. Now it’s time to enjoy the perks of being a local in a small mountain town after enduring another whirlwind winter season. While mud season in Breckenridge can bring in some crazy weather patterns, it also brings in some crazy deals for Summit County locals. Here are our top 3 favorite things to do during mud season in Breckenridge:
1. Use the Breckenridge Dining Passport to Enjoy a Date Night at a Discount (Valid until June 15, 2017)
This $10 dining passport (valid for 2 people) gives you exclusive access to local deals, and the best part is that Breckenridge Restaurant Association uses the proceeds to fund scholarships for local students. Last year alone, they awarded $15,000 in scholarships! Not only is this for a great cause, but the passport includes many local favorite spots in Breck, including Twist, Hearthstone, Relish, Briar Rose Chophouse, Apres Libations and more. For a full list of participating restaurants and respective deals, click HERE. Passports are available for purchase at the Breckenridge Welcome Center and at each participating restaurant location.
2. Go Whitewater Rafting with a 2-for-1 Local’s Deal (Offer expires June 25, 2017)
Performance Tours (voted 1st place in Best of Summit last year) is offering a 2-for-1 rafting trip valid on a Browns Canyon Full Day trip (valid until June 25, 2017). They also offer 20% off Arkansas or Blue River trips (vail until Sep 5, 2017). Just mention the “Local’s Deal” when booking to take advantage of either discount.
3. Take Advantage of Breckenridge Golf Club Locals Days (Opening Day – June 8)
