It’s worth celebrating when two great things come together. In the case of Breckenridge, it’s a wonderful, Victorian-tinged downtown and a varied, diverse mountain with something for all skiers. And the connective tissue is the BreckConnect gondola, which spans the nearly 7,600 feet between the base of Peak 8 and downtown Breck. Now that Peak 8 is reaching critical mass—with an all-season alpine coaster and several more lodgings and amenities planned in the coming years—it’s the place to stay to sample this sizable resort while maintaining a modicum of order. The best part: you can park the car and shelve the keys for the weekend. Because convenience and accessibility are two more great things worth celebrating.
