Breckenridge Ski Resort


Breckenridge is a family-oriented resort. You should plan for extra time to ride a shuttle to and from the parking lots. There is one lot that has a gondola lift right smack in the middle. You should expect to pay to park. Breckenridge is one of the few ski areas with an actual town at the base.
