Breckenridge is arguably the best Colorado ski town! Rather than being a purpose built ski village, Breckenridge is a genuine old western town that was founded in the 1850s to serve the gold miners. These wild west roots ensure that the town has plenty of character and color (literally considering the many colorful Victorian buildings), and the local folks are renowned for being super friendly.
Breckenridge is one of the most popular ski resorts in North America. During the 2010-11 season Breckenridge had a whopping 1.6 million skier days. The terrain at Breckenridge is spread across four mountain peaks providing 2,358 acres of skiing and snowboarding, making it the 7th largest ski resort in Colorado. The terrain is serviced by an extensive lift system (31 in total) including various fast lifts.
Breckenridge has varied terrain for all ability levels. Lots of the trails are rated as green (14%) and blue (31%), so beginners and intermediates are kept incredibly happy. Some of the black runs are groomed, so they’re also fine for confident intermediates. Other terrain includes moguls, fun tree skiing, and alpine bowls for advanced and expert riders.
Breckenridge Snow The Breckenridge ski resort receives an average of 300 inches of fantastic Colorado snow per season. To help Mother Nature along, there are 380 snowmaking guns that cover an amazing 24% of the mountain!
The snow quality is enhanced by the elevation of the ski resort. The base of the ski resort is pretty high at 9,000 feet, but the top of the ski area will get you really high! The Imperial Express Super Chair, Breck’s pride and joy, drops skiers and boarders off at above 12,800 feet. If you’re keen you can hike higher, up to 12,998 feet!
