Breckenridge is the ultimate spring break getaway for any skier. There simply isn't anything wrong with Breck other than crowds, and you get that at any major resort. One of Breck's strongest features is the terrain layout. It's spread out across 4 peaks (7-10). Peaks 8 and 9 are where all the ski school happens. Peak 7 is an all blue, and peak 10 is a double blue/black area. Peaks 8 and 9 have a couple great cruisers, but are always crowded. Peak 7 is a fun place for groups to ski together, but unfortunately only has one lift, so you'll have to have patience. Peak 10 is great, but is smaller than the other peaks. Once you get above all the crowds though, advanced skiers will have a great time. Aim for chairs 6, E, Imperial, and the T-bar, they are great for black skiers and I have never expereienced a line longer than 3 or 4 minutes. If you are confodent enough i strongly suggest doing the hike to terrain. The view is incredible! The terrain parks are plentiful and satisfy any level rider.
The town of Breckenridge has plenty of opitions for anyone. If you're hungry just walk down Main Street and something will grab your attention. For dinner I suggest Downstairs at Eric's or Kenosha, and for dessert go to Rocky Mountain Cookies.
