Breckenridge, a gorgeous resort, high in the Rockies west of Denver, is a massive ski area and one of the state's most popular destinations. With 155 runs, more than half of them rated as difficult or above, the slopes of Breckenridge will provide days of challenges for experienced skiers. Encompassing four major peaks, the resort features all the amenities you could imagine, including lessons, a terrain park, and on site lodging, dining, and rentals.
The cozy town of Breckenridge, nestled at the base of the ski area, is a historic mining town filled with Victorian architecture and packed with bars, restaurants, and lodges. During summer the town and mountain offer music festivals, mountain biking, and other fun activities.
