Breckenridge is a historical mining town, located at 9,600 feet (2900m) above sea level and is one of the highest ski resorts in the USA, thus ensuring a good snow cover from early November to late April. The ski area is suitable for all levels, but is particularly good for beginners and intermediates, with plenty of green and blue runs across all of the mountain.
Breckenridge was founded in 1859 and the first settlers didn't look for steeps and deeps, they were the toughest humans on Earth: Gold and silver miners. Gunfights in the middle of the street dominated the daily lives of the settlers and later the discovery of Colorado's largest gold nugget, are just some historic events in Breckenridge's history. That boom still echoes today with the discovery of 'White Gold', snow that put the town on international maps. The Breckenridge ski resort has 2358 acres / 954 hectares of skiable terrain and caters to all abilities.
Breckenridge offers many other winter and summer activities. As well as skiing, in the winter many people enjoy ice skating, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, sleigh rides and horse and carriage rides through the historic town. The summers offer a time of tranquility, beautiful flowers, hiking, biking, roller blading, golf, alpine slides, chairlift rides, four wheeling, horseback riding, rafting and fly fishing on the Blue River. Breckenridge also offers great shopping, exquisite food, gold panning, hot air balloon rides, dancing, live theatres and festivals all year.
