“Great town, great ski area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Whether you want to come here in the Winter to ski or in the Summer for other attractions, Breck is a great resort. We have been coming to the town and ski area for over 30 years and we love coming back every time. I have skiied every resort in Tahoe and Utah and several in CO. But Breck is my favorite for the large mountain experience and expert skiing on Peak 8 and 9.

The town has plenty of good various restaurants and hotels for couples and families. It has SO much more to offer than Vail and much cheaper than Aspen. Plus Breck has done a great job to preserve the Victorian era feel with it's stores and charming town feel. Not to mention that the view are incredible from any vantage point. If you're going to visit one resort in Colorado, this is the one to come to.

“Big ski area suitable for skiers of all levels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Breckenridge is the 2nd largest ski area in Colorado (after Vail). It has 4 mountains + enough lifts to give any skier a lot of variety no matter what their skill level is

“Awesome!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I don't understand why people from outta state they want to go to places like "Aspen" or "Vail" maybe because they think they are going to come across a celebrity under all those ski clothes. But the only think that I regret of all those years that I lived in Denver is that in the Summer I never went up to the slopes to ride my mountain bike.

“Breckenridge, jewel of the Rockies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Breckenridge has become in my view, the premier all-round, all-season resort in the Rockies, not for its modern hi-rise sprawling condo but rather for the old fashioned and charming street scene it portrays from every back alley to the pristine top of Peak Nine. In the words of the erstwhile Governor of California...."I'll be back".

“Fun in the Summer Sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I think that this is were you take the Gondola ride to... We loved this area... We went up in the chairlifts to the top of the mountain and hiked down. The hiking was a great time... The lodges (up on the top and the one at the bottom (at the end of the Gondola) were really nice and had everything that we needed
