Nestled at the base of Peak 9 and only a short distance from historic Main Street in Breckenridge, Beaver Run is in the perfect location where you can find adventurous activities, including ski-out access to the Beaver Run Superchair and the Quicksilver Chair. If you want a historical experience, take the complimentary shuttle to downtown Breckenridge; the town was first settled in 1859 when gold was discovered in the Blue River, which still runs through town. The town has preserved and restored its historical roots and offers many fantastic shops, museums, and dining options to enhance your overall experience. Beaver Run is a full service resort featuring the best amenities, including two heated pools, seven hot tubs, steam room & sauna, workout room, and relaxing spa. Beaver Run offers great dining options: Spencer’s Steak and Spirits, Base 9 Lounge and the Skywalk Market - open year round - and the Coppertop Bar and Café - open during winter season.
  • Tip #1:

    For helpful tips on what to expect during your season of travel, check out Breckenridge Travel Tips.

  • Tip #2:

    It is not necessary to have a car in Breckenridge as Free Ride Shuttles are available year round in Breckenridge. In addition, Beaver Run Resort has a shuttle that travels to and from the downtown area on a limited schedule.

  • Tip #3:

    If you want to head into any of the surrounding towns, use the FREE Summit Stage bus system Summit Stage. Also, before heading out on the roads, especially I-70, make sure to check out the traffic.

    *** New for 2016*** the Colorado Department of Transportation will have stricter enforcement of the state's Passenger Vehicle Traction & Chain Laws which states:

    If weather conditions require, CDOT can implement Passenger Vehicle Traction and Chain Laws. Motorists will be alerted to an active Traction or Chain Law by highway signage.

    Traction Law (Code 15) - During an active Traction Law, also known as a Code 15, motorists will need to have either snow tires, tires with the mud/snow (M/S) designation, or a four-wheel drive vehicle — all tires must have a minimum one-eighth inch tread.

    Passenger Vehicle Chain Law (Code 16) - During severe winter storms, CDOT will implement a Passenger Vehicle Chain Law, also known as a Code 16 — this is the final safety measure before the highway is closed. During a Passenger Vehicle Chain Law, every vehicle on the roadway is required to have chains or an alternative traction device (like AutoSock).

    Fines - Motorists driving with inadequate equipment during a Passenger Vehicle Traction or Chain Law could be fined more than $130. If a motorist blocks the roadway because they have inadequate equipment during a Passenger Vehicle Traction or Chain Law, they could be fined more than $650.
