Just spent 5 days (four of which I skied) at Breck. Traveled with a group and we stayed at The Great Divide Lodge which had excellent access to the chair at Peak 9. The mountain overall had an excellent variety of trails from the very extreme to easy groomers. I only got lost once which I blame on being wiped out from skiing my butt off all day. I suggest that before you go review the trail maps and get yourself a plan to work your way up both in difficultly and in getting used to the altitude which will take it's toll on you. The base is 9,700 feet and the peak is just under 13,000 and I don't care how good shape you are in that is some damn thin air...LOL
