At a time when the arts struggle for funding in major cities, town and schools across America the Town of Breckenridge has impressively stepped up to make all disciplines a vital part of the community with BreckCreate: Breckenridge Creative Arts. Established in 2014, Breckenridge Creative Arts was developed by the Town to support and promote arts, culture, and creative experiences throughout Breckenridge. The nonprofit organization is responsible for the successful management of a series of programs, facilities, and partnerships that collectively bring to life the cultural corridor in the heart of downtown Breckenridge. Breckenridge Creative Arts, also dubbed BreckCreate (kind of like RecCreate), or BCA, is headed by arts and festival veteran Robb Woulfe who moved to Breckenridge following a long and successful career as the Executive and Artistic Director of the internationally lauded Ann Arbor Summer Festival.

Hundreds more are injured. Avalanche awareness and education are key for backcountry users to have fun and stay alive. The KBYG program was developed in 2004 to raise avalanche awareness among inexperienced backcountry users, particularly those in junior high and high school. Since then nearly 200,000...
