The excellent friendly ski school offer beginners a great start. The gently nursery slopes by the Quicksilver lift or at the base of Peak 8 will soon boost confidence to enjoy the abundance of easy green and blue runs.
The highest resort in America with its huge, snow-sure ski area right behind the village. Using the high speed Beaver Run chairlift, you will be negotiating Peak 9 in no time at all, and from there, the mountains open up for a tremendous skiing adventure across all 4 mountain peaks.
With runs like 'Psychopath' and 'Boneyard' in the fantastic snow bowls of Peak 8, serious skiers just keep coming back. For the really extreme don't miss the Lake Chutes and Whale's Tail. The possibilities seem endless on the Ten Mile Range of Peaks 8, 9 and 10, with moguls and double diamond black runs galore.
The higher up you go in Breckenridge, the more mouth-watering terrain you'll find to get that adrenaline pumping. Different challenges from bumps and trees to short, sharp steeps mean you have to adapt all the time to keep up with the ever-changing landscape. And you'll never have to worry about avalanches, as Breckenridge secures all of its slopes, on-piste or off-piste. If you like open bowls, make sure you head to the Imperial Bowl for some awesome powder skiing.
Breckenridge was one of the catalysts in the development of snowboarding in the US, and with impressive terrain and a huge area spread over four peaks, it's easy to see why. The resort is home to one of the largest snowboarding parks in the US, a well-shaped halfpipe and lots of powdery back bowls to explore. On top of that, there are three more terrain parks on Peak 8 and two more on Peak 9, which are aimed at different levels and styles. The Freeway Expert Park has jumps of up to 70 feet alongside an awesome superpipe. For more variety, head down the Lechman trail, which is known for being one of the best natural freestyle runs in resort. The pistes are both fast and challenging, though novices have plenty of easy runs over both Peaks 8 and 9.
