  • Because the resort is at a higher elevation, the snow stays cold and there's more of it. It blows into the bowls and you can enjoy powder skiing up top when people are carving on groomers down bottom....  more »
  • This is a phenomenal resort. The mountain is huge (5 peaks) and very nicely laid out -- for example, Peak 7 has all blue runs and Peak 10 has all black runs. The lifts are large, fast, and get you whe...  more »
  • Small village with a large ski circuit ( you will enjoy the mountain whatever ski level you have) and cozzy restaurants. Lovely!  more »

  • I go skiing every year and this is by far one of my favorite mountains. Break has 8 different peaks with lots of diversity in terrain and level of difficulty. While this is a phenomenal mountain and town, I wouldn't recommend coming here for your first go around. It's very large and highly populated being that it's one of the largest resorts in Colorado. I'm sure the ski school is awesome, but the amount of people on the mountain can be overwhelming for beginners. Still, hands down a great place to hangout for a few days.
  • Beautiful ski area with some excellent world-class runs. A bit pricey, but that seems to be true of most ski areas anymore. Really great during even the off season, the gondola rides are fun, lots to do from skiing, hiking, mountain biking. Depending on you are staying you can catch a lift directly from the lodgings or from main street Breck.
  • Great place to take the kids for vacation, not so much the scene for a young couple. Expensive, but nice. Make sure you know which lifts are running before you purchase tickets to any of the activities. We rode our bikes down the Whirl single track. Fun, but not sure it was worth having to pay to have bikes lifted to the top when there are free trails everywhere.
  • I loved this place. I came from Illinois for vacation. This place was just awesome. And I had a special bonus. It was Octoberfest and it was such a great time. Thanks so much for the experience. I will be back to visit
