Overview of Breckenridge Ski Resort
The popularity of Breckenridge ski resort among British guests and indeed worldwide is not hard to see (it’s in the top 10 North American ski destinations for visitor numbers every year). Having recently celebrated its 150th birthday, the town of Breckenridge began as a 19th century mining community and many of the old buildings (249 ‘structures’ to be exact) have been preserved – most converted in to one of the resort’s hundreds of quirky shops and restaurants. For ski hire Breckenridge has dozens of outlets. There are a range of luxury hotels on offer as well as self-catered deluxe condos.
Add to the mix a world class ski area that’s one of the world’s highest (the planet’s highest quad chairlift is here!) – and thus most snowsure, easy to reach from Denver International, features a wide range of accommodation and you have a winning combination with a Breckenridge holiday.
Look at the Breckenridge ski map and you’ll see the ski area itself is spread over four inter-connected peaks known by their numbers – 7, 8, 9 and 10. The ski lifts and services are owned by Vail Resorts which runs the neighbouring resorts of Beaver Creek, Keystone and Vail too, and you can purchase a ski pass that covers all four areas, and nearby Arapahoe Basin too. That said, with more than 150 pistes to choose from, you may not feel the need to go far beyond Breckenridge’s borders.
Powderbeds features a range of accommodation in Breckenridge, the deals page in particular has some excellent offers with good prices.
