Breckenridge is as authentic as it gets, having been around since the 19th century, although back in those days Breckenridge purpose was servicing the miners working the surrounding hills for gold!
Breckenridge has long been one of North Americas most popular resorts but its ultra modern lift system means this doesn’t cause it to suffer massive queues. It is also very highly regarded internationally, the BBC recently voted it among the top five resorts in the World.
Breckenridge it blessed with a terrific snow record and gets on average over 750cm a year, which is hardly surprising when you consider Breckenridge town itself sits at an altitude of 2927m about sea level.
As is usual for U.S. resorts, Brekenridge has a fantastic set up for beginners. However it is higher up the hill, where the mountain is aimed at intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders the resort really shines.
Breckenridge’s snow park set up is among the best in the world, catering for those taking their first runs through the kicker line up to jumps that challenge the best in the world, all professionally and responsibly maintained.
