About the Ski Resort

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 everything like 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 own way that provide skiers and riders with a mass mixture of terrain

The all-blue Peak 7 features terrain for the intermediate-level skiers and riders 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. But to get to the Peak 7 Summit one must begin their journey at Peak 8.

Peak 8 is best known for its massive Freeway Superpark. Countless competitions are held every year at Freeway, and 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 funboxes 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 bother beginner and intermediate, supplying athletes with green and blue runs and terrain parks. Eldorado Terrain Park show 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.

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, 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, dog-sledding, 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 where they can dine and sip to outrageous dance floors where they can dance the night away.

There is a wide variety of lodging to suit any taste, from ski-in/ski-out to quaint mountain inns and lodges. Make the most of the mountain and town activities by staying within walking distance to Main Street.

That unprecedented variety and value, a real town and unreal skiing, all combine to make Breckenridge a Colorado classic.
