  • Visited Breckenridge for two days with friends: four women, three men. We are a mix of expert and novice skiers. The variety of slopes provided fun and challenging experiences for all of us. Three of ...  more »

  • It’s Breckenridge...what more needs to be said! Great mix of intermediate and expert skiing. Peaks 7 and 6 can get a little crowded, and peak 10 has fun, fast expert runs. And lots to do on 8 and 9. A...  more »

  • Great time! Snow was good despite a recent dry pattern. Employees were friendly. Do be prepared to sacrifice your first born if you plan to have lunch there! Burger and fries about $14 plus $7 for a fountain drink. It's like a Western Walt Disney. But a great place overall!
  • Staff are super friendly and accommodating. My friends and I took a beginners snowboarding lesson and the instructor busted his ass to make sure we felt safe and stable with every move he taught us. So appreciated when you're gaining the confidence to snowboard for the first time! We visited the weekend after Thanksgiving and while there wasn't a ton of snow, there were a ton of people there to enjoy what was out!
  • Breckenridge has really nice, long ski slopes and the views of the mountains as you're going up the chairlifts are breathtaking. When we were there, the average temp during the day was 30 or even higher, so it was relatively warm, and the skiing was very pleasant. The lift lines are usually pretty fast and, some lift is congested, it's easy to go to a different area with fewer people. I highly recommend this resort for skiiers/snowboarders of all levels.
  • One of the better ski hills around. Gondola in town for easy access. Lots and lots of varied terrain. Tons of lifts. Highest resort in North America so it's cold but the snow stays fresh. Very good signage and plentiful, friendly staff. If you can't find runs you love, you're not looking.
  • Good customer service however their ski selection is somewhat lacking. Couldn't find any on-piste skies and they barely had any All Mountain skis. That said if you are looking for Freeride skis you'll probably be fine. Most places offer a 20% discount, including this one of you book online. Some actually honor 20% off rentals just by asking.
