In operation since 1961, Breckenridge stands apart from Colorado’s legendary ski country in a big way. Its peaks boast over 25 feet of snowfall yearly, and with 34 lifts crossing a vertical rise of 3,398 feet, the mountain can have you gliding through the powder in no time. From the top of the Imperial Lift, many of the 14,000-foot peaks in the heart of the Rockies are visible, including Mt. Massive, Mountain of the Holy Cross, and even Pike’s Peak in the distance. The towering peaks surrounding Breckenridge ensure a constant supply of fresh snow at the ski resort.
Breckenridge covers a total ski terrain area of 2,908 acres, crisscrossed by 187 varied trails. To ensure optimal enjoyment, the expert weather observing ski patrol measures snowfall each morning before 5 am. The specific process for measuring snowfall aims to give you the most accurate snow report possible. You can check snowfall conditions directly, with the snow stake located in the back bowls on Peak 8, near the bottom of 6 Chair. You can also watch a 24-hour time-lapse camera recording snowfall online. Before you head out for the day you can check out everything you would ever want to know about the snow!
With snow conditions perfect for skiers of every level, Breckenridge spans a range of peaks and elevation levels, offering a variety of terrain and opportunities for making fresh tracks. Soft groomers abound for both beginner and intermediate carvers, while experts and the truly adventurous can experience deep powder in the bowls and glades.
Residing on mountains made for creating perfect snow conditions, with a professional staff dedicated to providing you with the most accurate daily snow reports possible, Breckenridge has optimal conditions for your next ski vacation. We hope to see you here, beginning Friday, November 7th!
