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
Some snow is forecast for the eastern side of North America on Tuesday night and into Wednesday, with Tremblant in Canada forecast to pick up 10cm. Unfortunately the lower slopes may see some rain further south in Maine, New England and Vermont in the USA but this will fall as snow up top.
Light snow was falling on Monday in California, and lots more is forecast for Tuesday night. Freezing levels will be well below resort level, so snow should fall over the whole mountain, improving conditions markedly on the lower slopes.
A dusting of new snow is predicted across Utah and Colorado, but the sun is also likely to make an appearance during the week. Temperatures will remain low so the on-piste conditions should be excellent and off piste powder stashes will stay nice and dry.
Mostly dry weather is forecast for western Canada, although with predominantly cloudy skies, some light snow flurries cannot be ruled out. The sunniest skies should be seen nearer the coast, at resorts such as Revelstoke and Whistler.
