So much to do, even off the mountain |

So much to do, even off the mountain

Jason Starr

Modern recreation facilities anchor two sides of the county and are the focal point for the sports leagues and wellness classes locals enjoy when they’re not on snow. Breckenridge recently added a state-of-the-art indoor ice rink that hosts year-round hockey leagues, learn-to-skate classes and occasional figure skating shows.

There are leagues in just about every major team sport. Softball is perhaps the most entrenched, hockey is newer in its popularity, and a third-year organization ” the High Country Soccer Association ” has significantly increased the soccer options for kids and adults in the county.

The recreation centers ” one in Breckenridge and another in Silverthorne ” also have basketball and volleyball leagues in addition to their pools, weight-rooms and exercise equipment.

In the summer, attention turns to the skateparks in Breckenridge, Frisco and Silverthorne, the sand volleyball courts and Breckenridge’s improving whitewater park.
