BRECKENRIDGE Colorado US Rockies
The Number One choice for British skiers to Colorado, the appeal of Breckenridge is obvious. This former silver mining town is a throwback to the Old West where the authentic Main Street with its wooden clapboard buildings is reminiscent of days gone by. When the skiing day is over, you can drop into the Gold Pan Saloon with its old pot-bellied stove and enjoy a drink or two. The town is full of interesting restaurants, shops and bars where the apres-ski and nightlife is amongst the best to be found in the Rockies.
With a village level of 9,600 ft and skiing up to 13,000ft, it doesn't come much higher than Breckenridge, guaranteeing good snow conditions throughout the entire season. Four inter-connecting peaks provide the perfect intermediate paradise and the gentle sloping runs on Peaks 8 and 9 are ideal for beginners or those wishing to improve their technique. To make the most of your lift pass, you must take in a visit to Keystone either by day or by night, Arapahoe Basin and Vail approx. 1 hour away, all covered by the same pass. However, we recommend that you leave at least a day or two for nearby Copper Mountain which is a real gem of a ski mountain.
