Breck announces summer rec pass options

BRECKENRIDGE – The Breckenridge Recreation Department invites visitors and residents to take advantage of a variety of recreation pass options for the summer at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena and Breckenridge Recreation Center.

The new Summer 4 Pack Pass allows access to the rec center for three visits and a free visit to the ice arena for public skate or Stik n’ Puck.

Another 4 Pack version reverses the order, giving more time to skate.

The popular Dozen Days Pass is good for 12 visits to the rec center. This pass is transferable and can be shared among groups or families.

At the ice arena, the 10-punch pass is a great buy for 10 visits to either public skate or Stik n’ Puck.

Middle school and high school students can use the student discount card for admission to the two facilities at up to 50 percent savings.

This card is available through the Summit Prevention Alliance, Summit Middle School or Summit High School.

The block pass is also available this summer and is offered to property management groups, tour organizers, local employers and organizations looking to buy Breckenridge Recreation Center passes in volume. Buy in blocks of 25 passes, at a discount of 35 percent, and make the Breckenridge recreation amenities available to guests and employees.

Many other pass options are available. For information, call (970) 453-1734.
