Breckenridge Trail Map
Breckenridge Ski Area
► Alpine Ski Area
Breck is situated in the Rockies and is nestled along the Tenmile Range—making it an ideal location for skiers and riders of all skill levels. The mountain features four base areas that make up its 2,908 acres of skiable terrain including smooth groomers, a 22-foot halfpipe, and some standout steeps.
On a bluebird powder day, skiers and riders should head up to Horseshoe Bowl, North Bowl and Whale’s Tail on the Imperial Express SuperChair—the highest chairlift in North America. You can also access this area via the T-Bar on Peak 7. Here you will find wide-open, double black diamond skiing. If steeps are your thing, head left from the top of the Imperial chair and work Easy Street and the rest of the Lake Chutes.
Because this portion of the ski area is above treeline, visibility can be compromised during snowstorms. If that's the case, Breck’s tree runs off the back of Peak 9 and E-Chair are a good alternative. For the experienced and fit, there is excellent hike-to, inbound terrain off the top of E-Chair. Once the bowls get tracked out, head over to the Falcon Chair and ski The Burn or the countless black diamond runs that Peak 10 has to offer.
► Breckenridge Terrain
They don’t call it “Serenity Bowl” for nothing. From the top of the super chair, hike about 10 minutes to the 12,573-foot Peak 6 summit, head skier’s right, and drop in. With boot-deep powder and a wide-open bowl, it feels like backcountry—but with regular ski patrol avalanche control, it’s safer.
Serviced by the Independence SuperChair, Peak 7 is packed full of blue cruiser runs which are ideal for intermediate skiers and riders. Skirt the northernmost boundary of the resort on Monte Cristo or rip fast laps on Pioneer. Whether you want to be mellow or work on your GS turns, this is the place for you.
What isn’t there to love about Peak 8? First, there’s the Imperial Express, the highest elevation chairlift in North America (which delivers you to some of the resort’s best terrain, by the way). Then there’s the T-Bar, a buzzing watering hole with an extensive beer, wine, and cocktail choices. There’s also the outdoor stage that comes out in the spring and hosts live music and, finally, there’s Freeway, where you might catch Shaun White practicing on the four massive jumps, myriad rails, and boxes or the 22-foot Superpipe.
Chances are, you’re no Olympian, but that doesn’t mean you can’t push your own limits. This season you can race on the EpicMix racecourse. Race yourself, your friends, or even four-time overall World Cup Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist, Lindsey Vonn. Find the EpicMix Race Course on Peak 9: from the Beaver Run Superchair, ride Sundown to the race location.
Challenge yourself on some of Breck’s toughest terrain and get there fast on the speedy Falcon SuperChair. Known as a “Bi” or Bicentennial Peak, it’s on the top 200 highest in the state of Colorado and offers spectacular views of the Tenmile Range.
► Tubing Park and Snow Play
Breckenridge doesn’t have its own tubing park, but you can visit the Frisco Adventure Park just 20 minutes from Breckenridge. It features a multi-lane tubing hill and beginner ski & ride hill, both serviced by an easy-to-use surface lift. The Adventure Park also includes the Frisco Nordic Center, which offers 27 kilometers of ski trails, 20 kilometers of snowshoe trails, rentals, skate or classic lessons, and ski tuning seven days a week.
Carter Park, Breck’s sledding hill, is located at the south end of High Street adjacent to the Breckenridge Elementary School. It’s free--just bring your own sled and some hot cocoa!
► Cross-country Skiing and Snowshoeing
The Breckenridge Nordic Center is located just a minute’s drive from downtown Breckenridge and 90 minutes from Denver. It has 2,000 acres of groomed cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails. After your day out on the trails, enjoy food and drink specials and beautiful views from their handcrafted log lodge.
