Breckenridge is a world-famous ski resort as well as an interesting town destination that appeals to first-time and return visitors for many reasons. One main attraction is that the mountain averages 300 inches of snow each season, so there's no doubt the powder is plentiful. The mountain has a high summit elevation of 12,998 feet, and the lift capacity will please skiers and riders on the move with 34 total lifts including one gondola and four super chairs. The resort stretches over five peaks (known as Peaks 6 through 10) creating a huge snowy playground including four terrain parks, two half-pipes and a great beginner and learning area. Test your stamina on the longest trail on the mountain — a whopping 3.5 miles long! Just steps from the slopes lies the legendary town of Breckenridge, known for the après-ski scene and a bustling Main Street. For an 1800s mining town with some of the authentic buildings still standing, there are also many modern amenities to enjoy such as fine dining, casual pubs, boutiques, art exhibits and winter festivals. Breckenridge is also a hub for activity in the summer months. On the mountain you’ll find excitements for the whole family like biking, hiking, ziplining and an exhilarating alpine slide. The resort town of Breckenridge is a great place to stay and play, and there is no shortage of lodging accommodations close to town and the slopes. Check out everything about Breckenridge here!
