“The most ski runs in Summit County. In my mind, better for skiing than snowboarding because of all the catwalks a boarder has to traverse.”

“Vail is only an hour away from Breck and is another great ski resort for long and technical runs, only downside is the drive and parking fees.”
  • 68 locals recommend
Ski Area
“Great skiing at A-Basin. I recommend exiting in Silverthorne rather than on the 6. The Silverthorne exit will probably be a safer drive. I recommend purchasing lift tickets from Liftopia.com to save some money. ”

Brewery

“This is the original Breckenridge Brewery location and our number 1 go-to. Great for families and large groups; worth the wait for a table. Also, perfect to just go grab a beer before hitting the town. The bartenders and staff are awesome and are all long-time locals; take care of them!”

“If you want to enjoy a quiet glass of wine to wind down, Hearthstone offers an intimate and charming atmosphere set in a Victorian house with views of the ski resort. From 4-6 pm you can indulge in sophisticated small plates like wild caught red snapper or Colorado lamb meatballs. Choose from an extensive wine list for $6 or $8 dollar glasses. Their martinis are also one of a kind”

Indie Movie Theater
