A nice introduction to skiing in Colorado, Breckenridge is a former mining town that has developed into an attractive ski resort. This friendly, relaxed Colorado ski resort is framed by a breathtaking view of four surrounding peaks.
Much of the original architecture remains, whilst new buildings have been added in a similar style, giving Breckenridge a traditional charm. The whole resort sits significantly high above sea level, making snow conditions excellent. Although some people may struggle with the rapid change in air pressure, altitude sickness is sometimes reported, Breckenridge certainly benefits from its location. Off the slopes, there are plenty of alternative activities to enjoy here - all in view of the beautiful surrounding peaks. Après ski offered in Breckenridge is amongst the best in the area - eating out is particularly good and supremely varied.
Aspen is 261 km (approximately 3 hours 20 minutes transfer) from Denver airport.
Breckenridge offers a huge choice of cuisine to enjoy after a long day on the slopes. American, Asian, Italian, Mexican and Japanese food can all be found in the plethora of different restaurants available. And new restaurants are constantly being opened in Breckenridge - though Café Alpine and the River Walk Café are two firm favourites. There are plenty of lively après ski bars and some serve food as well. Mi Casa, Park Avenue Pub and Bubba Gump's - the view from the heated sun deck is particularly breathtaking here - all have a friendly and fun atmosphere. For live music and dancing late into the night, the very centre of Breckenridge offers countless bars, pubs and nightclubs to enjoy.
