Best May Events in Breckenridge [Updated for 2023]
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.
Spash Into Spring at Breckenridge Ski Resort
Ski season ends at Copper Mountain and Keystone in April, but have no fear becasue you can still ski Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin in May! Come early and catch pond skimming at the Breckenridge Ski Area. Or better yet, register to compete in it!

Shoulder Season Hours
After a long winter, and with fewer visitors in the area, lots of places reduce their hours or take advantage by closing all together to take a vacation. To avoid making plans only to show up to a "Closed" sign, visit Apres.Ski for May hours of operation for Breckenridge restaurants and service providers.
Get Creative at BreckCreate
The slow pace of May is the perfect time to get in touch with your creative side. At BreckCreate you can test your skills in a variety of mediums, on your own or with your family. Throw some clay on a wheel and let your cretivity spin, or pick up a pencil and see what musings are drawn out of you. Feeling more daring, how about melting glass into pendents? You can try them all at BreckCreate.
Summit County Clean Up Day
The snow finally starts to melt in May and when it does it reveals all the trash that has been hidden under the snow all winter. Join locals in the long standing tradition of volunteering around Summit County for each town's Clean Up Day on Saturday, May 20th. It's a great way to contribute to the beauty of our area and to enjoy free food and drinks while getting to know your "neighbors". You can visit each municipality's website to learn more about how you can help clean up the county we love so much.
