Overview

A mecca for big mountain shredders and trick stomping freestylers, Breckenridge is all about the new school! When it comes to high alpine terrain, no-fall zone chutes, and wide open bowls, it tops every other ski area in Summit County.

Nowhere else in North America gets you higher on a lift, with the resort’s crowning glory Imperial Express Super Chair whisking skiers and boarders up to 12,840 feet. From this height you can spot the peaks of a whole bunch of Colorado’s magnificent fourteeners! Throw into the mix insane terrain parks expertly designed to cater for everyone, from first-time jumpers to seasoned pros, and you have the essential ingredients for a progressive skier’s and snowboarder’s dream mountain. All this and much more makes Breck America’s most popular ski resort - more skiers and boarders hit the slopes here than anywhere else in the country during the 2016/2017 season.

Pretty pricey but the slopes were a lot of fun. It's a little early in the season so not many slopes were open. Lifts ran well and were quick. All of the staff was nice and helpful.... More

The whole experience our first time, which was this past March, is what brought us back to the same spot in Breckenridge. The slopes are maintained incredibly well, the staff is exceptionally friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. As someone fairly new to snowboarding, I really... More

What can you say about one of the best places to ski/board that you don’t already know? We just did our 2nd trip this year, took snowbording lessons, the instructors were amazing! Wish there was a little more snow so more slopes were open but that’s Mother Nature right? Love... More

Although this resort is highly accredited, it turns out to be crowded, heavily speed patrolled and, well, a bit flat. Having spent a few days a Breckonridge, I think it's ideal for begginners and intermediates, but more advanced skiiers that would normally avoid the... More

Breckinridge is huge! So many good trails from nice and relaxing to challenging and exhilarating. Also amazing terrain parks and free buses to get you back close to where your cabin is from the bottom of the trails! Aside from skiing the food in town was very good and night life... More

Breckinridge is a beautiful area to ski and very family friendly. My wife and I love the size of the resort so you never feel like it's crowded or inaccessible. We love the mountain vibe the town gives off and the snow is great!... More

Lots of terrain for every skill level and great family resort. Can be very pricey though so plan to go mid week if you want to save money. Can also be very crowded on the weekends.... More

Definitely my favorite of the i-70 corridor mountains. Always full but rarely overcrowded, excellent snow when other closeby mountains fall through, and terrian diverse enough to serve the needs of any skill level. ... More

Breck is an awesome ski resort! Tons of trails with a great variety of terrain for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. The upper bowls are epic when there is a ton of snow, and the groomers are fun for deep carving early in the day with the wide trails and fresh corduroy. The... More
