BRECKENRIDGE IS ONE of several ski resorts that line Interstate 70 out of Denver. I confess to having skipped over it on previous occasions when I was headed west for a winter trip. But this old mining outpost, with a massive string of five skiable peaks and a historic downtown, continuously surprised me over a long weekend this past January.
Combining an average of 300 sunny days a year with a constant schedule of festivals and cultural events, Breckenridge offers a great mix of options for a winter weekend in one of the few remaining legit Colorado ski towns.
