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 Love Breckenridge! Easy to get to from Denver, live the town and the skiing! I would love to win the pass so I can go up more often! It's just gotten too expensive for me. ... More

I've been snowboarding for 7 years or so now and Breckenridge has been my all time favorite mountain so far! I love how there's a good balance of trail levels through out the whole resort, no matter what level snowboarder you are there's plenty of trails for you to shred! ... More

Breck is one of my favorite ski resorts. I went with a group of 8 and there were trails for every experience level. Easy to use the epic pass and get pictures online after the trip. I would definitely recommend! ... More

Such a great resort that offers unbeatable shopping and restaurants. The lodging is very comparable to other resorts in Summit County. The only downfall at Breck is the heavy crowds. ... More

Breckenridge was the nicest resort I've ever been to, and the fact that it's a couple blocks from downtown Breck is wonderfully convenient. I will be back, hopefully this year a few times at least.... More

We had a group trip to Breckenridge two years ago. It is one of my favorite resorts. Picture perfect mountains with a beautiful and fun town! I am not 100% how it is for beginners as I have been skiing since I was 3 years old. Cannot wait to come back.... More

Awesome resort but it gets really cold and it’s really expensive. I would love to ride more but I’m a college student and it’s hard to afford a pass. If the pass was a little cheaper I would have rated the price 5 stars.... More

There are a lot of people there and arrogant snow enthusiasts. But all around a good resort, a lot of fun terrain and secret slopes to ski down and amazing scenery.... More
