Breckenridge Climate

Breckenridge enjoys a high-alpine climate.  Tree line ends at 11,500 feet up in the neighboring mountainsides.  The average snowfall is in excess of 300 inches, and the average winter daytime high temperature is 28°F.  Despite the Town’s hardy winter conditions, Breckenridge has an average summer daytime high temperature of 70°F.  The valley basin has only 30 frost-free days a year.  It is the deep-powder, snowy winters and warm, low-humidity summers that have led to the local saying, “We came here for the skiing, but summers are why we stay.”
