January 13, 2024 - A Snowy Saturday Delight: Non-Skiing Adventures for Kids in Breckenridge

Breckenridge, nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, is renowned for its world-class skiing and winter sports. However, for families with young ones who may not be ready to conquer the slopes or last an entire day on the mountain, finding alternative activities can be a delightful challenge. Fear not, as we've curated the perfect itinerary for the youngest members of your family that promises fun and excitement for everyone.

Explorium Playdate at the Eclipse Theater

Kickstart your day at the Eclipse Theater on Ridge Street in Breckenridge.

Starting at 10 a.m., you and your child can enjoy a selection of animal-themed short films curated by Breck Film. The cinematic journey is followed by a creative craft activity that promises to spark your child's imagination.

Midday Sledding Adventures

After the Explorium and Breck Film, take a break for lunch or a nap to recharge for the afternoon. When the day is at its warmest, venture outdoors for some thrilling sledding action. Head to Carter Park or the Runway Sledding Hill for an afternoon of laughter and exhilarating descents down the snowy slopes. It's a perfect way to enjoy the winter wonderland without strapping on skis.

Sweet Treats and Warm Drinks

Once you've had your fill of sledding excitement, make your way to Clint's Bakery, a local favorite known for its delicious treats. Treat yourself and your little ones to a cup of rich hot chocolate, the perfect antidote to the chilly mountain air. Clint's Bakery provides a cozy respite and you can walk out the back door for a short walk to Mountain Top Explorium.

Take Out Pizza from Windy City
