Breckenridge Ski Resort

Breckenridge is a popular spot in the United States, located in Breckenridge, Colorado. It has a long and rich history that dates back to the beginning of skiing in this country.

Breckenridge is not a ski resort, but a true old west town. It was established in 1850 to provide services for the local gold miners. This wild west heritage gives Breckenridge a lot of character and color, as well as a reputation for being extremely friendly.

Breck was the first Colorado ski resort to allow snowboarders, and they hosted the 1986 World Snowboard Championships. Breckenridge Resort is a beacon of excellence for freestyle riding and snowboarding.

Breckenridge has many slopes that are suitable for all levels of skiers. There is also a ski school available for those who wish to learn or improve their skills. Many of the trails can be rated green or blue so intermediates and beginners are both happy. Some of the black runs can be groomed so they are suitable for intermediates. You can see why 48% of the terrain is groomed. Moguls, fun tree and alpine bowls are some other terrain.

Breckenridge is known for its unique terrain parks. You can easily move from beginner to pro level by having separate terrain parks. Warning: If you go to the expert terrain park or pipe, you might feel demoralized after watching the pros at work.
