Breckenridge Opening Day November 9, 2014- April 25, 2015 (Weather permitting)

Ski Resort in Breckenridge receives an average of 300 inches of snow annually. Because the base begins at 9,600 feet, the resort enjoys a six-month ski season. It currently boasts the Imperial Express SuperChair, the highest chairlift in North America, reaching amazing bowl skiing topping out at 12,840 feet. The summit elevation of Ski Resort soars at 12,998 feet.

BSki Resort has been open since December 1961. It offers 2,358 acres of skiing and riding, with the longest run, Four O'Clock, being 3.5 miles. The slopes rise a tremendous 3,398 vertical feet. The area is made up of 15% beginner, 33% intermediate and 52% expert or advanced terrain. Twenty-nine lifts deliver guests to 155 trails. The mountain is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Breckenridge features four peaks to explore. The summit of Peak 7 offers expert bowl skiing above treeline, accessible mostly through hiking off of the T-bar. Below the bowl, Peak 7's runs consist of wide, mostly groomed intermediate terrain, which the Independence SuperChair sweeps guests to.

Peak 8 is one of the main base areas, which the BreckConnect gondola goes to. Take the Rocky Mountain SuperChair to expert and intermediate runs, or take the Imperial Express Superchair to intermediate and beginner cruisers. Above the chairlifts, the T-bar escorts skiers and snowboarders up to Horseshoe Bowl, a wide-open bowl filled with glorious powder after a snowstorm. Chair 6 ascends to the other side of Horseshoe Bowl, where expert tree and bump runs await.

Peak 9 makes up the other main base area. Its two high-speed quads whisk guests up to mostly intermediate terrain. Above the lifts, hikeable terrain awaits adventurous spirits looking for challenging chutes through the trees.Read more
