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
Colorado can expect some light snowfall over the next five days, with cloudy skies dominating the weather pattern. A possible 15cm could fall, although there could be some significant local variations, with some seeing more and others less. Utah should remain mostly dry, with some excellent sunny spells for most, although some light snow showers cannot be ruled out. Further north in Montana and Wyoming, some decent falls are expected from Sunday onwards, accompanied by a much needed drop in temperature.
Unfortunately the Californian snow drought is showing no signs of letting up. A significant dump is needed but the present forecasts are looking sunny and mild for at least the next nine days.
Up in western Canada, mostly sunny weather is predicted until Saturday, before a cloudy change arrives on Saturday. Some light snow is expected on and off during next week which should help to freshen up the on-piste conditions and provide some pockets of powder off-piste.
Across on the east coast, the bitterly cold weather is forecast to continue. Up to 20cm of fresh snow can be expected across Quebec before sunny skies return for the weekend. Further south in Vermont, Maine and New England, cloudier skies are forecast throughout the period, bringing snowfall on and off to most resorts. Around a further 20cm of fresh snow can be expected.
