My husband and I had seen photographs taken on Boreas Pass and decided it would be a good side trip. The road took us up where we could look across to the Breckenridge ski slopes. We encountered a few snow flurries in June, as well...More

We enjoyed driving Borea Pass road, but I wish I had known a couple things prior to driving it. First, about a mile or so (maybe two miles) after the road turns to dirt, you encounter a couple beautiful views. Pull over and take a...More

Climbing up to the Boreas Pass from Breckenridge should most definitely be on the "must do" list. First you get sweeping views of The Resort and the town. As you climb higher and higher the temperature fluctuates, leaves become more golden, the Aspens are everywhere,...More
