How did Mardi Gras find its way to the mountains?
Some 15 years ago, a tight-knit group of New Orleanians decided to trade Mardi Gras crowds for skiing and sunshine in Breck. It wasn’t long before they realized they couldn’t do without hometown traditions; but since the group loved Breckenridge too much to leave, they brought a little bit of NOLA to 9,600 feet. Today, the Town of Breckenridge has expanded upon the revelry to include the Mardi Gras Ball with live music and more. Join the Breckenridge community to honor Rex in true mountain style: with skiing, snow play and an all-out party on Main Street.
