Visited Breckenridge in January 2020 for 5 days of riding. Breckenridge was plenty of mountain to explore but the only enjoyable days were mid-week-- way, way too busy for my taste! It was an obstacle course trying to get down a run and avoid all of the people in the way. It seemed like a lot of beginners and ski schools taking up all the space. The only runs that weren't completely crowded were black diamonds. Peak 8 is mostly just traversing between Peak 9 and Peak 7. Peak 7 is insanely busy. I've never even seen lift lines that long before. Lift line ups were growing and the liftys weren't assisting to ensure the lifts were full so there were half empty lifts going by-- very frustrating since there seemed to be plenty of staff standing around. Riding on the Friday only lasted two hours before we called it quits due to lift lines and busy runs. Enjoyed the mountain during the week but would not go on a weekend.

    Mountain is understaffed, lifts constantly breaking, too expensive. Breckenridge raises prices every year and gives less every year. Very frustrating!!!!!

    Breckenridge is the perfect big mountain resort for the 21st century. Five peaks = too much terrain for any one skier. Breckenridge...
