Breckenridge is the quintessential North American ski town.  With an impressive ski area spread across five excellent mountains, an efficient lift system and pastel-painted Victorian Buildings that line the streets in the historic mining village, you have one of the best all round ski towns in North America.

Breckenridge sits below five main mountains, imaginatively named Peak 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6.  It offers everything from bowl skiing, tree lined cruising to long inviting first time beginner runs.  Peak 9 and Peak 7 are an intermediates playground.

On the slopes Breckenridge is a well balanced ski resort with Peak 10 offering upper intermediate skiing, Peak 9 offering beginner and low intermediate level skiing.  Peak 8 offers steeper skiing and open bowls.  For the more serious skier, the top of Peak 6 offers  open bowl skiing and the top of Peak 7 is served by the highest chairlift in North America, the Imperial Express.

The resort has a fantastic snow record and is one of the first resorts in the USA to open every season, staying open to beyond the Easter holidays.
