Breck Pride Week is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the amazing community that makes up Breckenridge. Whether you call Breckenridge your home or your home away from home, there is a lot to be proud of; it is a community that engages with the arts, environment, recreation, and its diverse population. The Breckenridge Resort website states, “Breck Pride is for everyone – LGBTQ, straight, skiers, snowboarders, beginners, experts, supporters – come one, come all! Come as you are.”

It is free to register for Breck Pride Week. You can pick up your badge at the beginning of the week that will get you into free events, and give you access to discounts and freebies from local businesses throughout the week.

This event is available for all ages, but skiers must be comfortable on intermediate, blue runs. A lift ticket is also required to participate in this event.
