Breckenridge Ski Holidays- Hugh Selection Of Ski Runs
The beautiful ski resort of Breckenridge is perfectly located in the heart of the Colorado skiing Mecca. The area boasts a huge 240 km of piste spread over 139 runs! This huge resort offers something for everybody and guarantees to be a ski holiday that you will remember.
Beginner skiers have plenty to keep them occupied in this wonderful resort especially on Peak 9 which has a third of it's area dedicated to beginner skiers. Intermediates skiers will be similarly happy with this area as it has over 50% intermediate level runs. These runs are serviced by the quicksilver 6 seater chair.
Last Minute Ski Holidays In Breckenridge - Stunning Scenery
Peak 9 only has a couple of black trails that lead over to Peak 8 which is home to mostly intermediate and advanced runs. Peak 7 is an interesting mountain as it is home to most of the bowl skiing. Peak 10 is about 70% black runs but has a few good lengthy intermediate runs. All the skiing in Breckenridge is below the tree line and cutting through the forests apart from the double black diamond bowls.
If you are interested in some other types of skiing aside from downhill, the Breckenridge Nordic Centre is home to 18 km of perfectly maintained trails to explore. There is also the possibility of exploring some of the back-country routes that this beautiful resort has to offer.

If you find yourself unsatisfied with Breckenridge's huge mass of piste, you can buy the Colorado Ticket that allows you to ski at Beaver Creek, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Keystone. All areas are accessible by a free ski bus that is included with the ticket.
Breckenridge was the first major Colorado resort to accept snowboarders, way back in 1985, then going against the snowboarder-unfriendly trend of top resorts in North America (almost all of which have since eaten humble pie!).
The first ever World Snowboard Championships were staged in the resort that same season featuring snowboarding pioneers like Jake Burton, Tom Sims, Craig Kelly and Shaun Palmer.
There are great back-country boarding opportunities and the town's snowboard speciality shops and boarder friendly bars and cafés help add to the appeal of the place. National and international demos and competitions are of course organised too.
Breckenridge's altitude, snow making capabilities and state of the art pipe cutting equipment means that it invariably has at least one half-pipe open by late November, making it one of the world's first resorts each season to get full 'boarding facilities up and running - and the season last six months.
As you would expect Breckenridge has a big range of bars and night spots, with more than 100 establishments in all. The vast choice means that there should be something for everyone, with, for example, virtually every imaginable musical genre being performed or at least broadcast in one establishment somewhere in the resort.
For a lively time Downstairs at Eric's is always popular with more than 100 beers available from more than 25 countries, and a dozen satellite linked TVs for sports coverage through to 2am. A walk along the Main Street will provide a good choice of bars.
For something unique to Breckenridge try a Gold Mine Tour or take a guided or unguided walk around the resort to see many of the town's carefully restored and maintained century old buildings. There are two museums run by the Summit Historical Society to further inform you.
Ice skating is possible on Maggie Pond at the Village and at the Breckenridge Memorial Ice rink. Snowmobiling guided tours are also organised along the Continental Divide, including stops at ghost towns and old mining sites. The more leisurely might prefer a sleigh ride or even dog sledding. There are numerous snowshoeing trails around the area.
For indoor sports and activities The Breckenridge Recreation Centre is municipally owned and open to the public (a facility often lacking in some of the major French and North American resorts). It includes swimming pool with water slide, hot tubs, indoor tennis and squash (racquet ball) courts, a running track and gym equipment.
With more than 80 restaurants to choose from in Breckenridge you don't just ask for an Asian restaurant you ask for Chinese, Indian, Japanese or Thai. Then you don't just ask for Chinese you ask for Hunan Chinese, Mandarin Chinese or Szechwan Chinese. If you prefer European there's Bavarian, French and a choice of Northern or Southern Italian. Other options are Native American, Cajun, Southwestern American or from south of the border - Mexican.
With the vast choice it's difficult to select recommendations. However for fine dining in a former Victorian home (and bordello...) , The Hearthstone is a good choice - try the prime rib. Salt Creek Restaurant and Saloon serves traditional American cuisine and if you like fish then Whale's Tail might be worthy of your patronage. For spicy pasta at quite low prices the intriguingly named Rasta Pasta has to be on the list. A walk along Main Street should provide much more inspiration if required.
Sleigh ride dinners are a popular evening excursion through the woods, with dinner cooked on a camp stove and live entertainment provided.
