Breckenridge Ski Area

Spread across four interconnected mountains, the skiing at Breckenridge is exceptional and exciting for every level of skier and boarder.

Breckenridge 660X260 

With 2,908 acres (1177 ha) of skiing spread across five interconnected mountains (Peaks 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10), and averaging 300 inches of fluffy Colorado powder per year, the skiing at Breckenridge is exceptional and exciting for every level of skier and boarder.

Peak 7 made its debut over a decade ago, opening up 165 acres (66 ha) of intermediate terrain and seven new trails, and although it has been "tamed" there are still vast ungroomed upper sections of Peak 7 above the treeline to attract hardcore skiers. Peak 10 is by consensus the toughest, and Peak 9 the easiest of the other mountains, while Peak 8 is a bit of everything. The town and the ski area base are both at 9,600 feet (2,926 m) above sea level. The highest lift-serviced point is at 12,840 feet (3,914 m).

Peak 6 opened for the winter of 2014-2015 adding additional lift-serviced intermediate bowl terrain and some first rate hike-to runs for expert skiers.

Of the 155 trails, 24 are green beginner trails, 38 blue intermediate trails, and 74 black and double black diamond trails for advanced and experts. If you're concerned about safety, you can be assured of a safe skiing and riding experience at this resort: Breckenridge Ski Patrol monitors each run every morning to check for safety hazards that may exist. All man-made objects are padded to specification and/or marked with bamboo, rope and flagging for visibility.

The ski area also includes four terrain parks and halfpipes, including the world class half pipe at Peak 8. To accommodate new trails and a new terrain park, the Breckenridge grooming fleet got three additional snowcats and new pipe-grooming implements. Artificial snowmaking includes 380 snowmaking guns covering 540 acres (227 ha)-24 percent of the mountain.
