Why Breckenridge Skiing is So Great

Skiing is a winter outdoors staple, and in Breckenridge we’re experts at making the most of it. Breckenridge skiing stands head and shoulders above other locations. Here are 6 reasons why…

1) Sheer Volume

With an average of a mind-blowing 350 inches or more of snow, Breckenridge skiing stands out as some of the country’s best–with the longest season! We’re used to getting major snow dumps in the spring, extending our season as necessary.

2) Our Ski Passes Last All Year

You heard right. If you buy a Breckenridge skiing pass–especially if you buy early–you’ll get tons of freebies, like buddy passes. But the pass can be use on the lifts all summer long. They’ll take you to the higher elevations to enjoy the scenery snow-free.

View all the pass options, with everything from 4-day through Epic Local options, on the Breckenridge website.

Breckenridge Mountain is known for its world-class skiing and snowboarding terrains, as well as the highest lift in North America, the Imperial Express. The mountain offers over 2,300 acres of terrain. Once you get to the top of the mountain, you can enjoy Breckenridge skiing at its most impressive: steep open bowls and tightly packed trees, which allows even the most advanced skier or snowboarder to push themselves.

Plus, you can test your skills and practice at Breck’s four terrain parks–one for every skill level. Freeway terrain park features four massive jumps, lots of rails and boxes, along with a 22’ superpipe where pros can practice, or you can watch. Park Lane has two triple lines and enough rails, boxes, and jibs to keep you lapping all day. Take the 5 Chair to watch the action in the park. The Highway 9 terrain park on Peak 9 is the entry-level terrain park. It features small jumps, rails, and boxes. Located on Peak 8, Trygve’s is a small park with a combo of moderate jumps and boxes to help you get your foot in the door of terrain parks.
