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
A gloriously sunny weekend is forecast across western Canada, with steadily rising temperatures also expected. This should provide perfect conditions for the opening downhill World Cup races of the season from Lake Louise in Alberta. A weather front is set to arrive on Friday, initially dropping snow on Whistler (where almost a metre of snow is possible) before moving inland to drop around 10-25cm of fresh snow on our other featured resorts.
Very cold and snowy weather is expected in the Rocky Mountains, where temperatures look set to dip below -10C for many over the weekend. Snow showers are possible on most days, bringing up to 20cm of fresh snow to Colorado, 10cm to Utah and Montana, whilst Jackson Hole in Wyoming may pick up as much as 40cm over the weekend.
California is also set to see a spell of cold, wintry weather over the weekend, but less snow is forecast than further east in the Rockies. Around 5-10cm of new snow is possible on Monday, but before that a very cold (-10C at mid-mountain) and very sunny weekend is forecast which should provide the perfect conditions in which to enjoy the week’s fresh snow.
Cooler weather is also forecast for the east coast resorts in both the USA and in Canada, but only once the mild air in place on Thursday is displaced during Friday night. Some light snow may fall in Quebec, Canada, but further south in Vermont, Main and New Hampshire, little fresh snow is expected. The good news is that temperatures are set to remain well below freezing at night which should allow snow machines to fire.
