One of our favourite places to ski at Easter is Breckenridge, Colorado.  With its high altitude, the resort has always been a reliable snow-sure choice for a family ski trip during the Easter school holidays.

With its notably long ski season, Breckenridge plans to further extend its spring skiing and will now stay open for an extra five weeks, with a closing date in late May.  The plans to extend spring skiing are not just for this season, but are a long-term decision to position Breckenridge as the obvious choice for a late season ski trip in North America.

Last week, the resort’s owners, Vail Resorts, announced that they are going to extend the ski season at Breckenridge, which will now having a regular closing date in May.  This will see Breckenridge offering the longest ski season in Colorado, from early November to late May.

The resort originally had a closing date of April 21st this season. During the extended portion of the season into May, Breckenridge plans to keep offering skiing on Peak 7, with access to advanced and expert terrain in the high altitude Imperial and North Bowls on Peak 8 accessed by the Independence Super Chair, Imperial Express Super Chair and T-bar lift, for as long as conditions allow.

Breckenridge is part of the Epic Pass, which offers skiing at some of the premier ski destinations in North America, Europe, Japan as well as Southern hemisphere resorts in Australia.  The move to extend the ski season at one of the most popular resorts in Colorado will mean that Epic pass holders will now be able to ski for over six months every season.

Breckenridge offers some of the best high altitude skiing in North America, has America’s highest chairlift and sits above a historic mining town which has a vibrant nightlife.  To find out more about Breckenridge check out our resort run down and to keep up to date with snow conditions in the resort like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
