Full review

We recently visited Breckenridge April 8th-11th and skied tons of trails. The mountain(s) are so large that we rarely went on the same trail twice. Peaks 8 & 9 were our favorite. They had a variety difficulty levels and were wide open for the most part. As expected we did notice the entire area to be more crowded on the weekend but the higher you are on the peaks the less crowded we found it to be. There were also a ton more staff on the weekend and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The high speed chairs are great and the fact that they load two at a time cut on waiting in line. We never waited more than a few minutes to get on any chair. We had some great skiing at Breckenridge and recommend staying on the property to walk out to the lift. We will certainly be back!
