Overview

The Good 

  • Highest lift in North America at 12,840 ft for some big mountain shredding
  • Bustling historic mining town with a laid-back vibe
  • Party town reputation - they got après ski down packed
  • Wide range of lodgings from modest to luxury to suit all budgets
  • Award-winning terrain parks (some of the best in the world!)

The Bad

  • Epic wind chill so wrap up warm
  • High elevation means top lifts can close for days
  • Slopes can get crowded, ugh!
  • Snow can be blow-packed into a crusty shell
  • High altitude can cause altitude sickness

I fell in love with Breckinridge my first time skiiing there last year. the fresh powder made my experience 100% times better, way better than skiing on ice. The runs I accomplished that day were thrilling and had a great mix of trees and open space. Would love to go back soon... More

Breckinridge is a great little town, skiing was decent. Crowds are large and so it does take a long time for one run. Lots of things to do while you’re not skiing so that was nice because I have 2 kids with us ... More

Great ski experience. But the food on the mountain is exorbitant and daily lift tickets are ridiculous. Talked with employees. They need to be paid better. Better paid employees will provide for better customer service and higher quality guest experience!... More

The time I spent at Breckinridge was like no other. The quality of snow and short lines made for a great vacation. I typically go late season and would recommend Breckinridge to anyone who loves to ski or ride. ... More
