“Best ever or a family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

It's the best terrain I've skiied with my family. I loved the friendliness of the staff, the schools, and the variety of terrain.

If your taking a family it's a win.

“LOVED!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

First trip to Breck ... 5 of us (3 kids ages 15, 12 and 10) and we loved everything! We stayed at a condo we found on VRBO.com at the base of Peak 9 which was ideal for walking to the ski lift/shops, etc...I had made reservations for ski school online ahead of time, as well as rented equipment and bought lift tickets which made getting there on Day 1 a piece of cake! Everyone that worked there was friendly, helpful and patient - the lifts were great, slopes were wide open/groomed/well marked. I would go back to Breck in a heartbeat!

“Great snow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Breckenridge is a great ski town. This is the third visit and the snow is always the best. The town has a wide variety of restaurants from inexpensive/casual for eating with children to top choice for adults wanting an excellent food experience.

“Rude resort/restaurant employees; Worst food we have EVER had at any ski resort in West; LOTS of dangerous, out of control snowb”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

We were very disappointed with Breckenridge. Almost everyone we encountered - the ski rental employees at Peak 7, the restaurant staff at all on slope dining, and even the concierge at Crystal Peak Lodge ($$$!$) were rude and unfriendly. The on slope dining is not only overpriced, it is disgusting. There is no one to clean the tables or vacuum the floors. They ran out of half of the food options at 12:30 pm on one of the days we were there. Keep in mind this was spring break; didn't the resort know this and order extra food? The employees on the slopes and even in the town acted like they didn't want to be there. Next year, we will retun to our favorite ski destination - Deer Valley. There is truly no comparison, and the prices are the same. We love Deer Valley. Breckenridge - clean up your act and your attitude!
