Breckenridge, Colorado has skiing! However, there's a lot more to this quaint little town than skiing. Breckenridge has a history as it was a part of the gold rush and started out as a mining town. Breckenridge is Colorado's largest town in the historic district.
But first, about the skiing, Breckenridge has 155 ski trails to choose from. The trails vary in difficulty from mild to mad. You will be able to find a challenge, if that's what you're looking for.
Breckenridge ski season is usually from November to April. Weather does play a factor in the ability to ski, so if you're looking to plan a trip, check the forecast. The trails are open from 8:30 am ‘til 4:00 pm Mountain time. The ski lifts are fairly reasonable but it you purchase your lift tickets in advance you can get a great deal.
Though we plan our own trips, there are a lot of excellent vacation package deals available. Most I've seen include air and lodging and are quite reasonable per person.
If you're a novice or need a ski refresher course, you can get lessons.
Breckenridge has a population of way less than 5, 000 so you get the "hometown" feel when you're there. The town is full of things to do when you're not hitting the slopes. You can take a balloon ride, go dog sledding, ice skate, take mine tours, visit museums, go snowshoeing, sleigh riding, ride a snowmobile, hit a spa, or shop. Really, the list goes on and on of things to do in Breckenridge.
Every place we've eaten has had fantastic food and variety.
