The choice of skiing is also vast, ranging from the wide, well-groomed gentle slopes at the bottom of Peaks 8 and 9, wonderful areas on which beginners can develop their technique, to mogul runs and the famous wild Back Bowls of Peak 7, which offer vast steep terrain without the trees at a 45-degree pitch and will test the skill of more advanced skiers. Intermediate skiers however, enjoy the greatest range of the 2000 plus acres of terrain at Breckenridge. The resort now boasts the highest chairlift in North America, the Imperial Express Super Chair on Peak 8, alongside the existing 29, opening up yet more terrain. As well being able to enjoy the vast skiing available to you at Breckenridge (which boasts a great snow record and a ski range from 2926m – 3963m, almost guaranteeing super skiing), you may also take advantage of the full area pass which includes the resorts of Keystone, Vail and Beaver Creek. This is certainly the best way to experience many of the top resorts in Colorado.
Snowboarding is welcomed with two terrain parks and two half-pipes including a Super-pipe with 18.5" walls. Breckenridge is one of America's best resorts for boarders and is hosting the prestigious 2007 Chevy U.S. Grand Prix of Snowboarding on Breck's Freeway (Peak 8); a terrain park and a super-pipe. For those with less experience, the Gold King half-pipe and terrain park has smaller table-tops and jumps, whilst night-time exhibitions in town as well as the competition itself will keep spectators amused.
Several ski schools that cater well for children and adults, with varied lessons to suit your individual needs. Early reservation is highly recommended as these courses are very popular.
