Make this your New Year's Eve destination
Thu 25 September 2008 by sykadelik
Having travelled to a number of resorts in mainland Europe and Canada, I decided it was about time to venture to the US of A. After some research we concluded that Breckenridge was the place to spend Christmas and New Year. It's probably the best decision we ever made. From Christmas Day burritos to the New Year's Eve torchlight parade, it did not disappoint. Oh, and the snow - how could I forget the snow? There was a major dumping before we arrived so the pistes were incredible. No queues on the lifts, which was a surprise at what's generally considered to be peak season. Then on New Year's Day Mother Nature provided some more serious powder conditions, the like of which I have never experienced. Carving down the Imperial Bowl with clear blue skies around me is a memory that will stay with me forever.

Everyone is really friendly and the mountains are really good and at this altitude you are pretty much guaranteed snow all season. Been here 2 years on the trot and will be back here or somewhere else in Colorado next season.
Breckenridge is Great!!
Tue 17 January 2006 by MishibuWe are snowboarders and went to Breckenridge in Feb 05 with a couple of friends who ski and our then 8 year old boy. We all loved it and found every aspect of the time there 10/10. The people are friendly and the cost of eating out, on and off the mountain, is very reasonable.
We all decided to have some lessons while we were there and found it was fantastic value for money at £100 for a whole day or £50 for a whole day, with only on average 4/5 in a group.
Would and am going back, would recommend to anyone - you won't be dissappointed.
Tue 24 February 2004 by frankieboardsThis place is the proverbial dogs bollocks. The terrain park is truly awesome, with hits, spines and rails to test the gnarliest of riders....and not to forget the super pipe....just remember to pack a spare set of undies for when you kack urself! And if u do...then there's also an alright intermediate park called Gold King. Freeride and there';s some awesome terrain within bounds...try the peak 9 chutes off chair E and the blacks off chair 6. Both kept me coming back for more, until i discovered Horshoe Bowl and Cucumber bowl, off the T bar. When you've finished pissing urself at the antics of skiers trying to use the T bar (Americans are so stupid that they have to be told to let go when they fall off)...go on up and then drop left into the bowls. Heaven. The town itself has got something for all tastes, and a good attitude. This place is tops.
