Breckenridge Ski Resort was forced to close on Saturday due to high winds in the area.

At around 2:30 p.m. the resort sent a tweet saying they would be closed for the rest of the day "for the safety of all guests and employees".

It is not clear if Breckenridge offered any sort of refunds or rain checks for those who had bought a pass for the day. Lifts generally close at 4:00 p.m. and the gondola stops running at 4:45 p.m.

High winds also caused the closure of Eldora Mountain on Friday.
