Breckenridge Ski Resort is the largest historic district in the state of Colorado. The town and its residents are eager to offer something new and hip to visitors, from thriving nightlife to extreme mountain competitions at the colossal Breckenridge ski resort.
The resort's 146 trails span through four interconnected mountains, making Breckenridge Summit County's largest ski area. Each peak is fantastic in its right, providing skiers and riders with a mass mixture of terrain.
The all-blue rated runs at Peak 7 feature terrain for the intermediate-level skiers and riders. A must visit for those who enjoy groomed runs and average-angled slopes. Above the Independence life, however, rests the Peak 7 bowl, which offer audacious chutes and vertical slopes that funnel down to the blues. Reaching the Peak 7 summit means skiers and riders must begin their journey at Peak 8.
Peak 8 is best known for its massive Freeway Superpark. Countless freestyle competitions are held every year at Freeway. The park is said to be one of North America's most acclaimed terrain parks, receiving numerous awards from various magazines and readers polls. Aside from Freeway?s enormous locale is Twister, a park for beginners that offers entry-level jumps, rails and fun boxes. The peak as a whole offers runs for all levels, including a trailhead on one side and T-Bar on the other that will bring skiers and riders to the glorious High Alpine bowls that lie above the Peak 7 and 8 resort lifts.
Peak 9 caters to both beginner and intermediate, supplying athletes with green and blue runs, as well as terrain parks. Eldorado Terrain Park shows learners the basics by offering small jumps, boxes, rails and even a mini-pipe. Intermediate?s can practice their style at the Gold King Park, built specifically for midway skiers and boarders. Chutes are available by foot access at the top of the Mercury Lift as well. Hiking has never been so rewarding!
Peak 10 is for the expert skier and snowboarder only. Both sides of the mountain are for those who crave trees, steeps and bumps. If you feel woozy at the top and need an easy way down, stick to the blue-black runs such as Crystal, Centennial and Doublejack.
If four intense peaks aren?t enough to feed an appetite, neighboring Keystone Resort is linked by a free direct shuttle service and interchangeable lift tickets all season long.
Once off the slopes, Breckenridge offers snowmobiling, ice-skating, historic tours, dogsledding, a live theater and many more activities.
If variety is the spice of life, Breckenridge's nightlife offers visitors a lot of flavor. Post-ski options run the gamut from raging nights in clubs, to new age relaxation in oxygen lounges, to kicking back with a micro-brew at one of many laid-back bars.
Popular and packed, or off the beaten path, Breckenridge guests can pick their potion for fun. With a number of bars & restaurants, visitors can choose from cozy little bistros featuring gourmet flavors to dine and sip. Late night, visitors move on to the outrageous dance floors where the masses gather to cut loose & shake a tail feather.
There is a wide variety of lodging to suit any taste. Guests can choose from ski-in/ski-out lodges, to quaint mountain inns or bed and breakfasts. Make the most of the mountain and town activities by staying within walking distance to Main Street.
This unprecedented vacationing variety and value in combination with a real town and unreal skiing, makes Breckenridge a Colorado classic.
