Breckenridge has over 2350 acres of serious terrain, receives over 300 inches of snow each year and has a peak of 13,000 feet. The Breckenridge ski resort area has received nearly $50m of investment in recent years producing well-manicured slopes, a quarter of which are cover by snow canons.

The excellent friendly ski school offer beginners a great start. The gentle nursery slopes by the Quicksilver lift or at the base of Peak 8 will soon boost confidence to enjoy the abundance of easy green and blue runs.

The highest resort in America with its huge, snow-sure ski area right behind the village is great choice for intermediates. Using the high speed Beaver Run chairlift, you will be negotiating Peak 9 in no time at all, and from there, the mountains open up for a tremendous skiing adventure across all 4 mountain peaks.

With runs like ‘Psychopath’ and ‘Boneyard’ in the fantastic snow bowls of Peak 8, advanced skiers just keep coming back. The possibilities seem endless on the Ten Mile Range of Peaks 8, 9 and 10, with moguls (or bumps as the Americans call them) and double diamond black runs galore.

The area has five state of the art terrain parks and four half pipes. If you like cruising there are plenty of turns to be had on well groomed pistes.
