Breckenridge, with its world-class terrain parks, 6.7m Superpipe, down to earth vibe and vibrant nightlife, is popular with families, freestyle skiers and boarders around the world. With the highest lift accessed terrain in North America off the Imperial Chair sitting over 3900 meters, the snow at the top is unbelievable, while snow-making ensures exceptional surface conditions on the mountain even on a low-snow year. Here affordable accommodation sits alongside luxury hotels, world class restaurants and bars, a town brewery, local distillery, boutiques and a unique arts district.
Food & Bars
AccommodationMost of the accommodation at Breckenridge is in privately owned condos on the west and south of the main street, which is closest to the mountain and minutes away from the lifts.
Many of these were built in the 80s and early 90s and haven’t been updated since then, so they’re in stark contrast to the picturesque historic buildings in the village. Never the less, the accommodation is convenient to amenities, comfortable and available to suit different sized families, groups and budgets. If you’re looking for more luxurious accommodation, consider One Ski Hill Place and Crystal Peak Lodge.
Skiing & BoardingBreckenridge is much loved by skiers and snowboarders alike. Spanning five peaks and over 2,356 acres of skiable terrain, accessible via 31 lifts, here there’s a variety of runs to satisfy all abilities.
Peak 7 and Peak 9, with their picturesque blue and green groomed trails that feed back into the main town of Breck are ideal for beginners, while Peak 8 and 10 suit expert skiers and riders. Less crowded is Peak 10, sitting below the tree line, to tempt expert skiers onto its epic blacks and double black trails or enjoy the smaller tree runs.
If you’re an advanced skier and you’re at Breck on a powder day, don’t miss the opportunity to head to Horseshoe and Content Bowls. And, if you’re simply looking for inspiration, watch on in awe as the locals tackle the Freeway Terrain Park and the amazing Pipe.
For families with babies and young children, Breck offers great childcare across multiple locations. Lessons for ages 3 and up at the Breckenridge Ski School are offered on incredibly wide, quiet runs at three convenient locations.
