Breckenridge Resort Info
Breckenridge is small by US standards, though does still have a good range of pistes. A haven for beginners with its excellent ski school, Breckenridge also provides some fun but short runs for advanced skiers, with top bowls offering good off-piste opportunities (Lake Chutes). Intermediates also have some enjoyable (but limited) cruising. Better skiers will want to use the shared lift pass, with access to Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Vail for more variety. Snow reliability is exceptional, as is the lift system, making the idea of queueing an (almost) distant memory. freestylers have also got a nice park to play on
Breckenridge ski resort
Breckenridge has a 19th century feel to it, as it was a gold-mining town, but with all the bright colours does seem a touch "Disneyland". The resort has every type and price range of accommodation, from self-catering to top hotels, but some are quite far from the lifts requiring the use of a free shuttle bus. With a wide selection of restaurants and bars, après ski is lively without being too rawcus. Breckenridge also provides lots of non-skiing activities such as sleigh rides and ice skating as well as a cinema, swimming pool, art gallery and good shopping.
Overall, Breckenridge is a solid ski base from which to explore the Summit County resorts. Lastly, though, please be aware of altitude sickness that, when combined with jetlag, can make for a few uncomfortable days.

North American Weather Outlook
Spring is forecast to return to the Rockies over the weekend, particularly in Utah where sunny skies and mid-mountain temperatures of between +6C and +8C. Expect some slightly cloudier skies in Colorado, bringing with it the chance of some light rain on Sunday/Monday. The next colder change is set for the second half of next week based on current forecasts.
Warm sunshine is forecast for California, with daytime temperatures hitting +10C at mid-mountain over the weekend. Some rain showers are possible on Saturday and Sunday which is not great news as the snowpack is already suffering.
Western Canada is looking unsettled over the weekend, with precipitation expected at all of our featured resorts. Sadly much of this is set to fall as rain in British Columbia on all but the highest peaks, and even in the higher altitude resorts of Alberta. Colder weather is currently forecast to arrive on Tuesday and much of the rain is set to turn to snow which is good news.
Slightly milder conditions have also finally become established on the east coast of both Canada and the USA, but temperatures are expected to reach maximums of around +2C rather than the double digits of the west coast. Some new snow is expected in colder spells, such as on Friday and then again on Monday, when a further 10cm of new snow is expected.
