Breckenridge Ski Resort

Like the baggy-pants jibb ers who frequent Breckenridge’s no. 3–ranked terrain parks, this resort gets a bad rap. Yes, it’s hard to get around. No, don’t go at Christmas. Yes, you’ll be sharing the slopes with first-timers. But if you’re looking for a great town and a big mountain where all types of skiers can find somewhere to play, meet Breck. From the T-bar’s steeps to Peak 7’s cruisers, the resort wins praise from parents and park rats alike. The circa-1850 mining town is reason enough to visit, no doubt helping to earn the resort a no. 6 ranking in Après, no. 9 in Dining and no. 7 in Off- Hill Activities—check Riverwalk Center for concerts and shows. But that’s all just gravy. The skiing is what matters, and Breck’s 2,358 acres really do have it all. “The best overall resort, even if it’s not the best in any one category.” Bad rap: set straight. —Heather Hansman

Off-Mountain Restaurant » Hit Relish, in a fresh second-story space on Main Street, for the best dinner or happy hour in town.

Bragging Rights » Sure, the Lake Chutes are steep, but The Burn and Mustang, on oft-ignored Peak 10, are steep and narrow.

Top Event » Ullr Fest, the town’s annual weeklong celebration and plea to the god of snow, is Jan. 8 to 14, 2012. Judging by last year’s 500-plus inches, it gets results.

Try a soup, sandwich, burrito, taco, and home-style favorites like chicken fried steak and meatloaf. Our favorite: a margarita and signature fish tacos with a secret sauce.
