If you have your own snow shoes you can go up the gondola to the Shock Hill exit, then get out and snow shoe the Pence Miller track which runs above the town. The views are spectacular. When you get off the gondola its to the left, goes all the way around Shock Hill. Well worth the energy. Snow showers... More

We had never been snowshoeing but we found it very easy and great fun out in deep snow. There are several trails which are easy to follow with markers on the trees at regular intervals. You can hire the gear ( snowshoes, plus boots and sticks if you don't have your own) which is all in good condition. The main... More

This place was a great surprise. After a couple of days of downhill, we decided to try snowshoeing and found an ad for the B.N.C.. The price was downright reasonable, and when we arrived, the friendly and knowledgable staff fitted us for snowshoeing and informed us that if we wanted to switch to cross country skiing mid-day, there was no...

The Nordic Center is easy to access, up Ski Hill Drive. Beautiful log building that provides cross country skiing and snow shoeing. I've twice signed up for the 1.5 hour group lesson but as I was the only one, it became a private lesson. Cucumber Gulch is a wonderful area with beaver homes, etc. You can rent all equipment, including... More

Extremely friendly staff. Helped us get our snow shoes and took the time to explain the map and showed us where we could grab a bite to eat while exploring. Trails were well maintained and was very peaceful. Would have gone back again if we had more time.

Im an athlete with no skiing experience. Took a classic lesson with Rick who from the first few minutes just kept repeating "you can do this" . We laughed a lot, I fell and then got up and ended snow plowing down the hill that just 30 mins. earlier freaked me out. Gorgeous facility. Snoeshoe through the woods and you... More

Fantastic time on our private snowshoeing tour with Sarah. Highly recommended. Sarah was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. We will certainly do this again on our next trip to Breck.

Had never been to a Nordic Center before, so wasn’t sure what to expect. One of our group arrange for snowshoeing as a break from the week of skiing. Great way to spend the morning and get some real exercise. Staff very friendly – and helpful – eager to answer questions and explain. Helpful in explaining the activity of snowshoeing... More

The trails are well kept, and the views are nice. The daily rate with rentals is quite pricey, especially for a family.
