Breckenridge, known for snow, service and sunshine is one of the best USA ski resorts for British skiers. Dating back 130 years, Breckenridge has maintained its "Old West" charm of the gold mining era, combining character, a fun and friendly atmosphere and an unbelievable ski area. Added to this is the chance to ski another 4 top resorts on the lift pass, Breckenridge is a great choice for making a perfect Colorado ski holiday.
The fantastic friendly ski school offers beginners a great start on their USA ski holidays. The gentle nursery slopes by the Quicksilver lift or at the base of Peak 8 will soon boost confidence to enjoy the abundance of easy green and blue runs.
The highest resort in America with its huge, snow-sure ski area right behind the village. Using the high speed Beaver Run chairlift, you will be negotiating Peak 9 in no time at all, and from there, the mountains open up for a tremendous skiing adventure across all 4 mountain peaks.
With runs like "Psychopath" and "Boneyard" in the fantastic snow bowls of Peak 8, serious skiers just keep coming back for their ski holidays. The possibilities seem endless on the Ten Mile Range of Peaks 8, 9 and 10, with moguls (or bumps as the Americans call them) and double diamond black runs galore.
Offering one of the biggest US snowboarding parks, the area has two state of the art board parks and a well shaped half-pipe which is serviced by Colorado's first and only 400ft carpet lift. If you like cruising there are plenty of turns to be had on well groomed pistes.
