It's not all about downhill skiing here. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing get some serious love at places like the Breckenridge Nordic Center, which offers 1,400 acres of groomed terrain and soaring mountain views. Along with the woodland trails, the center offers lessons for first-timers (for both adults and kids). You'll also find a lodge here, perfect for grabbing food and drinks or simply warming up by the massive stone fireplace. 

Visitors can't say enough about the friendly and accommodating staff members and the gorgeous landscape. In fact, the views are so beautiful that the Nordic center is a popular place for weddings. Travelers also appreciate how affordable activities are, especially compared to Breckenridge Ski Resort. You can even trade in your skis for snowshoes if you want to try both sports – at no additional charge. 

The Nordic skiing season runs from mid-November to mid-April, and trail passes cost $20 for adults and $15 for kids. If you don't have equipment, you can rent it at the center for an additional $22 for adults and $17 for kids. You'll find the Nordic Center a half-mile from downtown Breckenridge, up Ski Hill Road.
