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
The wintry theme is once again set to continue in western Canada, with Monday’s snowfall set to continue right through into Tuesday for most places. By the time the skies clear a further 20cm of snow could have fallen which is great news. A sunny and cold spell of settled weather is then forecast right through until early next week which should provide some perfect overhead conditions in which to enjoy all of the fallen snow.
Sunny weather is forecast to remain in place across Colorado, Utah and much of the rest of the Rockies right through until Wednesday 25th November. Snow clouds are then forecast to arrive, although any accumulations are set to be relatively light. These should clear through by the weekend to leave sunny skies and cold temperatures.
The snow is due to arrive a day earlier in California and looks to be heavier in nature too. Up to 30cm may fall on resorts such as Squaw Valley, Heavenly and Mammoth. Changeable, cold and at times snowy weather is then forecast into the weekend – bringing as much as a further 15cm of snowfall which is great news ahead of the popular Thanksgiving holidays.
The struggle on the East Coast sadly looks set to continue however, with no significant fresh snowfall expected at our featured resorts. Temperatures look set to remain mostly below freezing however, so with Thanksgiving on the way, expect resorts to be blasting out artificial snow to ensure decent coverage for holiday season.
