Breckenridge Ski Resort Overview

Breckenridge Ski Resort is one of Colorado’s most-visited ski resorts and ski towns, located approximately 100 miles west of the Denver International Airport and less than a two-hour drive from the Denver metro area. The mountain first opened on December 16, 1961, consisting of trails on Peak 8 serviced currently by the Colorado SuperChair, and is now considered a large, international ski resort.

Skiers and riders from new to seasoned have five peaks and 2,908 acres of skiable terrain to explore. A towering summit elevation of 12,998 feet, among the highest in the state, is the jumping-off point for Breck’s impressive 3,398 feet of vertical drop. Breckenridge ski resort is home to four award-winning terrain parks and a 22-foot superpipe.

Feeling a bit peckish? Fuel your alpine adventures at one of Breckenridge ski resort’s 11 on-mountain restaurants or stroll Breckenridge’s charming, historic downtown district. Take in the Rocky Mountains’ breathtaking views at 2,500 feet from the Gold Runner Alpine Coaster, shop at more than 156 unique and locally-owned boutiques and enjoy a libation at Breckenridge’s many restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. 

After a long day of hitting the slopes, shopping and dining you will want to relax and recharge at one of the countless lodging options, including ski-in/ski-out resorts, condos, and hotels so you can get right back to another ski day on Breckenridge’s 187 trails.
