Breck’s five interconnected peaks offer amazing variety for every skill level. Peak 8 is home to some of the best (and longest) learning terrain in the world, keeping beginners on their toes and glowing with accomplishment. The south side of Peak 10 boasts big fat bumps, hidden kickers, legendary glades and enough fresh tracks to make expert riders and skiers salivate. With wide-open bowls, gentle rolling groomers, steep and deep runs, and arguably the best terrain parks in North America, Breckenridge offers almost endless terrain for non-stop skiing and riding.
