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 settled week of weather is forecast for western Canada, with mostly sunny skies dominating the overhead conditions. A cloudier change is forecast for Friday, potentially bringing some light snow on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures are expected to hover around freezing at mid-mountain so for the best conditions head to the upper slopes.
On the west coast of the USA, more clouds are forecast to move in on Tuesday, bringing an end to the settled period of weather. Some light snow is predicted for Utah and Colorado between Wednesday and Friday before the sun returns on Saturday. It is currently cloudier already in California which may lead dusting of snow this week, with potentially 10cm expected. Much more is needed, but this fall will provide a welcome top up as our featured resorts haven’t seen snow since December.
Across on the east coast a massive winter storm hit on Monday, with heavy snow expected to continue right through into Tuesday. Temperatures will remain well below freezing and over 30cm is forecast to low levels. Wednesday is the day to be out skiing as a sunny break in the weather is expected before more snow arrives on Thursday/Friday.
Eastern Canada can expect the current cold conditions to continue, with temperatures struggling to top -10C at mid-mountain. Some light snow is forecast on Tuesday and Thursday before a significant drop in temperature to around -20C at mid-mountain comes in on Friday.
