BRECK­EN­RIDGE

SKI - - RESORTS OF THE YEAR 2019 - — S.B.

EP

If you’ve skied Breck and don’t like it … it’s you, not the moun­tain. Let’s talk stats. Just shy of 3,000 acres of ski­able ter­rain, six peaks, four ter­rain parks—one with a 22-foot su­per­pipe. High-alpine ter­rain like few other re­sorts in Colorado. Fast and ef­fi­cient lifts, plenty of on-moun­tain eats and suds. Oh, and the town of Breck­en­ridge, com­plete with Main Street’s hop­ping restau­rants, bars, shops, and all the moun­tain-town ameni­ties you’re look­ing for. It’s crowded, you say. This is true. It’s ex­pen­sive. Also, not un­true. Yet, if you know where to ski, it’s worth it. When con­di­tions al­low, the high-alpine is the place to be. There’s no magic pass­word. If you’re an ad­vanced to ex­pert skier, this is for you: Colorado Su­per Chair ´ Chair 6 ´ Im­pe­rial Ex­press. Off­load point: 12,840 feet over the ma­jes­tic Colorado Rockies. At your feet: Dou­ble-black-di­a­mond ad­ven­ture ter­rain, bowls, and chutes. You’ll never see Breck the same way again. Es­pe­cially after you re­count your day’s ad­ven­ture over Ahi Tuna Na­chos at Main Street’s Blue River Bistro. Best of both worlds.
