Breckenridge has long been, and continues to be, the favourite American resort with British skiers. Its appeal is obvious: a former gold mining town that now is better known for its rich seam of snow. The shops, bars and restaurants on and around Main Street are housed in traditional Victorian buildings, many of which are authentic and enjoy a colourful history. There is a plethora of skiing and snowboarding suitable for all ages and abilities, whilst other snow sports on offer include snowmobiling, sleigh-rides and ice-skating. With its rich heritage, well groomed slopes and the nearby resorts of Keystone, Vail and Beaver Creek, you'll never be short of things to do in Breckenridge.
