Recommendations

Its location within a fascinating former mining town makes Breckenridge a perfect place for your non-skiing friends and family, but avid skiers will jump on the Imperial Express Superchair – the highest in North America – to enjoy lift-serviced backcountry access. Don't let the gnarly terrain scare your novice friends. The Village area offers a fine selection of long and easy beginner trails, and the six-person Quicksilver lift shortens the lift. A gondola, located in the town's center brings you up the mountain. Caveat: They don't call it Breckenwind for nothing. Bundle up!
