Breckenridge Announces Return of Annual Spring Fever Festival

Breckenridge, CO - Officials at Colorado’s Breckenridge Ski Resort have announced the second edition of the resort and town’s month-long Breck “Spring Fever” festival, which will feature a series of events taking place from March 17 to closing day, April 15.

Breckenridge Ski Resort launched Spring Fever last year to celebrate and embrace the biological change which occurs in humans as the seasons switch from winter to spring. The festival will take place throughout Breck as the town and mountain welcome visitors to one of the best times of the year for skiing and riding. Spring in Colorado typically means some of the season’s deepest snow, along with sunny bluebird days, special events and deals for guests from around the world.
