Summit County is known for its ski slopes but locals also know how to throw a party – and New Year’s Eve is no exception. Whether you want to ski, party, or just relax your way into 2019, there is always something for everyone in the mountains!
If you’re ringing in the new year in Breckenridge, fireworks can be seen from almost anywhere in town but be sure not to miss the Torch Light Parade down the ski slope! Enjoy food and drink specials, ‘reindeer games,’ and live entertainment at the Maggie Restaurant, or purchase tickets to Reggae on the Blue at the Riverwalk Center counting down into the new year. Main Street Trolley will be servicing downtown Breckenridge all evening for free!
Want to dance your way into the new year? The Gold Pan Saloon, one of Breck’s oldest watering holes, will be getting wild with DJ Crisp, drink specials, and a champagne toast at midnight. El Paso Lasso will play covers from the 80s, 90s, and today at Motherloaded Tavern.
Spending the holiday at family-friendly Copper Mountain? Enter the kids in the children’s Glowstick Pageant, enjoy the Ski and Ride School Torchlight Parade and top of the evening with a mountain-side fireworks display! A DJ will be spinning tunes and be sure to get entered into the free giveaways and snag a few sweet treats, too!
Trout Steak Revival (voted the best band at Telluride Bluegrass Festival) will be returning to Warren Station at Keystone by popular demand. Ring in the new year with music from a quintessential Colorado band ringing throughout the Rockies!
And of course, the best part about spending New Year’s Eve in the mountains? Those that partake responsibly reap the benefits of quiet turns and untouched corduroy down the slopes on New Year’s Day. Book your New Year’s Eve adventure with River Ridge Rentals today!
