    First to Review

    Granted this was the best real ski resort I have been to (the others being Mountain High outside of Los Angeles and the indoor resort in Dubai) but it was still an incredible experience nonetheless. Mainly skiiers here with an assortment of boarders. There are 4 main peaks to ski on. Peak 9 and 8 have a variety of slope types while 10 is almost exclusively black diamonds and 7 is almost exclusively for blues. The second day we had fresh gnar pow which was great. Breck is also pretty close to Vail in case you want to check out something else.

    World famous so I'm told, but mostly too difficult for me so I could only use 2 slopes, when I tried to use a third, I nearly broke my neck and couldn't ski the rest of the season. Went to Dew Tour here and had expensive beers at the T Bar a couple times. Lots of seating and annoying lines if you are there on a popular day. Take the bus if you don't want to wait for the gondolas.

    Been since 1999 that I skied Breck, but a Summitt County institution. Ski Peak 10 to avoid crowds. The town is a great Colorado ski town.

    Great skiing- all types of terrain to satisfy all the riders in your crowd. Huck a cornice or check out the terrain park/ Apres Ski at the base lodge at Peak 8.

    An internationally known ski resort with runs for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. Peak 6 has just opened with the addition of 2 new chairlifts. Breckenridge also boasts to have the highest ski lift in North America.

    Breckenridge Ski Resort offers world class runs on 4 mountain peaks (7,8,9,& 10)
    They are now developing a 5th mountain peak (Peak 6). The Breckenridge ski and ride school is excellent for skiers to learn at all ages. Our adult sons started very young and went to the school each winter to become excellent skiers. It is great for parents with young children because you can drop your children off and ski all day while they are also learning to ski

    Not really my cup of tea. Crowded and commercialised but probably best of class for family holiday skiing.

    Close proximity to Denver and a charming main street are strong draws to Breck. With our young kids in tow, the town's family friendly attractions and easy public transit pointed us here over other CO ski towns this trip. I don't think the skiing compares with nearby Vail, but no shortage of fun on those hills!

    World class skiing and snowboarding! For beginners to advance, there is a run for everyone! Ski Breck offers group lessons, private lessons, day care and ski school for younger kids. Sure beat a day at the office! Only five minutes from the house.

    Great world-class skiing and boarding. There are 3 mountains (soon to be 4) with great runs. There are runs for everyone (beginner, intermediate, and Black diamond). They have great lessons too for the aspiring skier.

    To be honest I have never skied at Breck....hard to believe but true. So my rating of 3 stars is because I can't personally vouch for how it is. But I am sure it is great and many, many people ski there. Lot's of terrain that is for sure.

    Breckenridge has a historic reputation of welcoming new comers and enticing new comers to return time and time again. It is easy to "fall in love with Breck" for its 374 yearly powder inches, for having North America’s highest lift, or for encompassing Colorado’s biggest historic district.

    To entertain yourself at the resort in non-ski ways, ride the new Gold Runner alpine coaster, snowmobile, take a dog sled, or browse any of seven on-mountain gear shops. Within a mile’s radius is an ice-skating rink, a movie theater, sleigh rides, and free transportation to the other highlights of Breckenridge and Summit counties.

    Breck looks out for the earth in other ways too, enforcing major recycling and composting programs, buying wind-energy credits to offset 100 percent of the resort’s energy use, and upgrading snowmaking methods to save water. Greenies aren’t as pleased, however, about the planned 543-acre expansion into land that’s currently wild habitat.

    That’ll be in addition to the existing 2,358 skiable acres, which cover 155 trails and 3,398 vertical feet connected by a diversity of 31 high-speed lifts whose capacity approaches 38,000 people per hour. There are also two terrain parks and an Olympic-sized halfpipe. More than half the terrain here is restricted to highly skilled athletes, and gets shredded by the likes of Shaun White, Hannah Teter, Gretchen Bleiler, and Tanner Hall during the annual Dew Tour in mid-December.

    The ski school stocks high-caliber instructors and runs programs specifically for women, seniors, and wannabe snowboarders. Three daycare centers take babies as little as eight weeks old and makes sure the tots get to play outside. Should you wipe out, the ski patrol’s pretty big: more than 250 members.

    Breckenridge is a jewel box of a town with some 200 boutiques and a full-fledged après scene: One of the newer restaurants is cafeteria-style Ski Hill Grill, whose views are of the action on the slopes. The village also has dozens of bars (Breckenridge Brewery and the historic Gold Pan Saloon are among the best), nightclubs (head to Cecelia’s first), live-music venues, and in January, the annual Ullr Fest, a “wacky winter festival,” as well as the International Snow Sculpture Championships. Spring Fever, a roundup of music and sports contests, runs mid-March to April 14.

Description

Unlike Vail (which was built as a resort), Breckenridge was a mountain mining town, and still has a historic character that draws even non-skiers. With five peaks, five terrain parks and the highest chairlift in North America, the ski resort at Breckenridge is immense, with something for every level. A plethora of good beginner and intermediate runs complement several double black-diamond verticals that will get your heart rate pumping. After a few hours on the mountain, funky local stores, unique restaurants and a cool bar scene await. Better yet, spend the night at one of Breck's many condos, where you can practically ski to your front door.
