Best May Events in Breckenridge [Updated for 2024]

For anyone who has experienced it, May is a fabulous time to be in the high country. The weather can be snowy or sunny, so you can definitely ski in May, but you might even fit in a hike around Lake Dillon! With the winter's Peak Season behind us, and summer's still ahead, the small towns once again feel like quaint and quiet small towns. You can slow down and have longer conversations with the people you meet, or just enjoy the peace it brings on your own.

Shoulder Season Hours

Be mindful when making plans and know that you may show up to a "Closed" sign. Just continue strolling and you will find a wonderful option that will still be open.
