It’s hard not to love Breckenridge. Ask anyone who’s been, and they’ll probably rattle off a list of reasons they seriously considered staying after their last visit.
An old mining town, Breckenridge never quite lost its frontier spirit. It’s not splashy like Aspen or Vail, but it has 187 enviable ski trails to keep devotees entertained and a Victorian-studded downtown to keep them every bit as charmed. It even hosts the tallest chairlift in North America, the Imperial Express Superchair, which climbs 12,840 feet up the resort’s Peak 8.
