Despite being an expensive location, this is a super good resort with great snowboard terrain, and excellent local services. If you want to ride an amazing park with something for every one and which is groomed and maintained daily, this is the place to come.

As with many of Colorado's resorts, Breckenridge can be uncomfortably expensive. However, for riders on a tight budget, providing you shop around for accommodation and other local services, you will be able to stay here for a reasonable price. There are also really good happy hours at a lot of the bars, which can be a really cheap way of getting a pretty decent meal and drinks to of course.
The town is spread out, and has a rustic wild west feel about it with quite a few old fashioned, classic wood buildings. You can spend until you drop here with a staggering 225 plus shops, including a number of good outlets for snowboard hire with the option to rent demo boards and step-in set ups.
For some of the latest and freshest, new snowboard gear, check out the Big Hit and the Underground snowboard shops. Other attractions include a new 5 million dollar ice ring and a cool area for skateboarders to do their thing. The town has an amazing recreational centre, complete with a pool, tennise courts, racket ball courts, climbing wall and state of the art gym, easily accessed via the free Yellow bus route.
