didn't snow while we were there

Full review

Our family (4 teens and myself - no wife) went there in early Feb 2009. We have a timeshare there - Grand Timber - so we were right on the mountain, which is always a great benefit - ski on/off. Breckenridge has terrain for all abilities including several terrain parks. It has plenty of groomed cruisers, bowls, mogul fields. Breck has four major peaks (Peaks 7-8-9-10) and is spread out so you will not get bored easily. I personally like bowl skiing and the steeper slopes which automatically keeps the crowd down. And the kids love the terrain park so we split our time to get plenty of both. Of the six days in CO this year, we spent 4 at Breckenridge (day trips to Vail and Keystone). It didn't snow while we were there :( but there was plenty of sun and good times for all. Eating out in Breckenridge was very good as well - I would recommend the Hearthstone and Cafe Alpine. Final two points - the water tastes great (probably because we are from the East) and the high altitude (over 12,000 ft) can be a problem so I made sure I had HA medication. I am sure you will have a great time here - Ed Tompkins
