The days after the leaves drop in mid-September and before the snow starts to accumulate on the slopes are considered the off season in Breckenridge. While things slow down just a bit, there are still a lot of fun things to do and this mountain town is alluring no matter what the weather. To make it even more attractive lodging and dining can be discounted during October and November. It can be a great time to explore the town without all of the crowds. Here are some of the best deals around town during the off season.

The Dining Passport

The best way to access some great deals is with the Dining Passport. You can purchase the Dining Passport for $10 at participating restaurants and at the Breckenridge Welcome Center, once it comes out for the season. Most of Breckenridge’s premier restaurants offer deals that you can’t find anywhere else. In addition, the $10 goes to local scholarship funds and other local organizations. You get to support a community you enjoy and take advantage of great dining deals.

Free Mug

If you are in town before opening day, there is a secret the locals know. According to GoBreck.org you can stop by any local coffee shop and get a free mug of coffee and you get to keep the mug as a memento. It is sponsored by Breckenridge Ski Resort. Here’s the catch; it’s hard to plan around. Typically, the resort opens the second weekend in November, but that is always subject to weather conditions. A lot of early snow may mean an early start, but if the snow trickles in slowly, the resort won’t be able to open until later. If you are lucky enough to catch it just right, you can score some preseason deals and take a few turns on the slopes.

Weekly Specials

A lot of the restaurants around town offer daily or weekly specials. Be sure to check out all you can eat rib night at Kenosha Steakhouse on Monday nights. And Fatty’s Pizzeria offers a lot more than pizza. Don’t miss their awesome, homestyle comfort foods. Fish and chips are their Friday lunch special. As the season changes and crowds ebb and flow, restaurants are likely to change up their specials and deals. Check out Summit This Week to keep track of special and deals around the county.

Call Ahead

The trickiest part about the off season is unpredictability. Many restaurants use this time to close down for a deep clean, reduce their hours, or try out a new menu. It is always a good idea to call before your go to double check hours and deals. You don’t want an unpleasant surprise when you arrive. On the plus side, lines and waits are shorter, and you are likely to pay less for food and lodging than during peak season. Breckenridge is beautiful any time of year, why not take advantage of the quieter season?
