When gold was discovered along the Blue River in the 1800s, miners flocked to Breckenridge to seek their fortune. Today, skiers and snowboarders head to Breck seeking something almost as valuable: the perfect mountain town.

While the town’s Victorian architecture and designation as Colorado’s largest historic district make a trip to Breck an aesthetically appealing and historically enriching experience, the array of activities—from powder and groomers to shopping, dining and nightlife—keeps things exciting. Breckenridge has its own pulse, and visitors feel it as soon as they arrive.

Situated along the Tenmile Range in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge has four distinct base areas and a total of 2,908 acres of skiable terrain for all abilities.

Corduroy lovers, beginners and families will feel right at home at Breck with multiple areas to explore. For cruising on perfectly manicured groomers, aim your skis toward Peak 7 where you’ll find only blue runs. Serviced by the Independence SuperChair, Peak 7 has limitless options for intermediate skiers and riders. Skirt the northern most boundary of the resort on Monte Cristo or rip fast laps on Pioneer. Whether you want to be mellow or work on your GS turns, this is the place for you. 

Breck is also known for its four terrain parks featuring two half-pipes, and despite its expansive grooming, is home to some epic steeps.

On a bluebird powder day, skiers and riders should head up to Horseshoe Bowl, North Bowl and Whale’s Tail on the Imperial Express Super Chair, the highest chairlift in North America. Here you will find wide-open, double-diamond powder skiing. If steeps are your thing, head left from the top of the chair and work Easy Street and the rest of the Lake Chutes. You can also access this area via the T-Bar on Peak 7.

Because the area is above tree line, visibility can be compromised during snowstorms. If that's is the case, Breck’s tree runs off the back of Peak 9 and E-Chair are a good alternative. For the experienced and fit, there is excellent hike-to, inbounds terrain off the top of E-Chair. Once the bowls get tracked out, head over to the Falcon Chair and ski The Burn or the countless black diamond runs that Peak 10 has to offer.
