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
Monday’s light snow across western Canada is expected to peter out overnight, leaving a gloriously sunny week of weather. Temperatures are set to gradually rise from around -10C at mid-mountain level to around 0C by Thursday and around +4C by next Monday.
The snow currently falling across Colorado and Utah is forecast to continue until Tuesday, although some parts of Colorado may cling on to some snow showers until Thursday. Once the snow stops, sunshine and gradually increasing temperatures are expected so some great skiing is likely to be had across this region in the coming week.
Recent snowfall in California is also set to stop, but this time by Tuesday, to be replaced by sunny skies. Temperatures are set to rise significantly, with daytime highs of around 8C possible by the end of the week.
The story again could not be more different over on the east coast, with yet more bitterly cold and snowy weather is forecast for the coming week. Another 10-15cm of new snow can be expected in the US states, with up 20cm possible across the border in Canada. Sunshine unfortunately will be at a premium, but thanks to the new snow and the cold temperatures, the snow conditions are set to more than make up for this!
