If your idea of an American ski town comes straight out of a Clint Eastwood movie, look no further. Breckenridge’s frontier charm blends perfectly with its party town reputation. From groomed runs to steep bowls and one of the most spectacular snowboard parks in North America, there’s something for everyone, all packaged in picture postcard beauty.
Breckenridge’s history dates back to the 1860s and it has not lost any of its frontier charm. The original brightly painted clapboard buildings remain on Main Street, but many now house shops, coffee houses and restaurants. With over a hundred restaurants, bars and clubs to choose from, there is more than enough to keep even the most die hard party animal busy.
Facilities for children
There are children’s centres located at both the Peak 8 and Peak 9 base areas, which offer a variety of day care packages for kids aged from 6 weeks to 3 years (pre-booking essential) and the Ski & Ride School offer fun lessons for kids of all ages with a separate ski kindergarten area at the base of Peak 9.

Breckenridge is an intermediate’s dream with acres of groomed cruising runs, created from the resort’s commitment to groom every single green and blue run every night. Advanced skiers have a choice of some short but challenging terrain on Peak 10; or a ride up the Imperial Express Superchair at the top of Peak 8 – the highest ski lift in the northern hemisphere at 12,840 ft – gives access to advanced terrain that was previously only accessible by hiking. The resort boasts several terrain parks, each aimed specifically at different levels from beginners to professionals.
