Breckenridge Snowboarding Colorado

As the first resort in Colorado to allow snowboarding, Breckenridge remains popular with those who enjoy boarding in exclusion of or addition to skiing. In fact, Breckenridge snowboarding is responsible for twenty-five percent of the resort's winter use. Bountiful snowfall and several dedicated areas make Breckenridge the ideal location for snowboarders.

Snowboarding Conditions

Breckenridge boasts the highest snowfall of all ski areas in Summit County making it the ideal location for snowboarding and skiing alike. The resort is comprised of four peaks on the Ten Mile Range, creatively named Peak 7, Peak 8, Peak 9, and Peak 10. The high elevation of the resort makes it especially cold, and technical gear is necessary for comfort during the iciest months of the year. Season Passes go on sale in September, but the resort does not officially open until November 10, with weather permitting.

 

Snowboarding Trails

Riders are allowed on all ski runs in Breckenridge, and in addition, there are several areas designed specifically for snowboards. The sheer size of the ski area offers a tremendous variety of trails, runs, and parks. While a good third of the resort is best suited for experts, there are many runs available for beginners and intermediate skiers. Experts interested in Breckenridge snowboarding will be drawn to the peaks of the mountains where steep degrees and fresh powder make the sport the most exhilarating.
