Unlike other nearby resorts, Breckenridge is an actual town, blended seamlessly with a ski resort. And I love that. Breckenridge has plenty of variety in terrain, lodging, nightlife, seriously something for everyone. The quality of the slopes stacks up well - there's plenty of terrain to keep you busy. And the overall attitude of the people here is as mellow and friendly as you can get. We stayed in town here for 5 nights but only skied one day. (We did 4 day trips to other resorts nearby, because the lift tickets were also good at Keystone, A-Basin, Vail, and Beaver Creek). But spending our nights here was a good call. It's cheaper and way more fun than Vail. I love Breck!
