Mountain Information

Breckenridge ski area has enough terrain to entertain the most diverse of crowds: beginner runs, fun blues and blacks, expert terrain in the bowls, and a great town to complement the mountain.

  • 2,358 acres of skiable terrain
  • 3,398 feet from top to bottom
  • 5 terrain parks, using 25 acres of the mountain
  • Trail Difficulty: 14% Beginner, 31% Intermediate, 19% Advanced, 36% Expert
  • Plenty of mountain services, from restaurants and shops to museums and nightlife


There's no question about it: four peaks are quite a lot to tackle. Peak 8 and 9 offer great variety for beginners and intermediates, while Peak 7 is a great mountain for intermediates to hone their skills and perfect their turns before heading up to Peak 10 on the Falcon SuperChair, where advanced runs are waiting. 

Then, when fully prepared to drop into some true double-diamonds, head up to the top of Peak 8 Summit at 12,998 feet. Your heart will be pounding before jumping the wind-blown lip and pointing them straight down the Lake Chutes. Take note of the warning: this is expert terrain.
