Breckenridge is an extremely popular resort located in the largest historic district in Colorado. There are 2378 acres to explore at Breckenridge! Intermediate runs and cruisers come in clusters, especially around Peak 7 and Peak 9. Recently expanded Peak 8 takes you to extreme terrain you could previously only hike to. If you like bowls and chutes, this zone is ... where you’ll want to go for most of your riding. Breckenridge also has 5 professionally maintained terrain parks, complete with halfpipes and superpipes. Through Vail Resorts ownership, Breckenridge has added a number of accommodations, including lots of ski-in/ski-out properties. Though the ski resort and town have transformed Breckenridge, it has kept its relaxed and casual atmosphere of days past. An old mining town, old Victorian houses can still be seen, and mine merchandise can still be found in local stores. If you are looking for night-life activities, you will have no trouble finding them with over 40 bars and pubs in the slope-side town. Overall, Breckenridge is a great place for both beginner, expert and intermediate skiers and snowboarders alike and the town offers a nice change of pace from the action packed slopes! Read more

Breckenridge Reviews & Tips (6)

Went in late January and had 2 sick powder days. Fairly wide runs, and if you find the right slope, there might be nobody but you. Skiing's awesome and the town is great too. The only problem was the altitude sickness. Breck has a pretty high elevation so make sure you acclimate. If you don't have time to acclimate, take Diamox. It's pretty cheap and it works wonders. Also, take lessons. They have a great lesson system and they have a Ultimate 4 lesson so you won't be stuck with a big group. Instructors are relaxed and helpful. Plus, with the lessons, you get to skip lines!

I'm an expert skier and have skied for years, but I haven't gone the last couple because of the price. It's ridiculous, and the owners of Breck, Keystone, and Vail have driven up the costs and rarely offer and mid-season discounts. You have to buy their stupid pass. Gold-C was the bomb.

I am a local and absolutely love Breck! From peaks 6 to 10 they are all great - I am a fan of the upper mountain, Whale's Tail accessed when the mountain is fully open from the Imperial Express (the highest chairlift in North America). Peak 6's inaugural season was epic - the powder was terrific and loved the trees in that area (although it will take a couple seasons for us to break through the lower branches in some areas - be sure to wear a helmet!). For visitors to Summit County who have trouble with the altitude, here is my blog which outlines tips on how to prepare and cope with any symptoms - dealing with it early is key! Enjoy - I plan on getting another 40 days in at Breck this season.

Used Black Tie Ski Rentals, highly recommend! Cheaper than local and delivered and picked up at your door, cheaper than paying the airline baggage fee! Super easy! Breck was great too! Peak 6 was very cool, great grub at the Whales Tail! Have fun!

The fluffy snow was excellent! We are from Indiana so we aren't used to the long runs or the powder when we ski in Michigan. We will definately come again! FYI....unfortunately my husband got altitude sickness almost the whole week. Out of the four days we planned on skiing, he skied 4 hours out of two days and didn't ski the other two days. Make sure you talk to your doctor if you are coming from a low lying area about how to acclimate yourself to the high altitude! Breck is Awesome!

Our first trip to Breck and it was great. Only bought rentals thru Liftopia from Black Tie rentals. Service and equipment was great. Couldn't be easier or quicker. They met my son to change out his boots when he got them wet. They also refunded one of our six rentals after my daughter became ill just as we arrived. We just faxed them a Drs. note for a full refund. Will definately use Liftopia again.
