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
Mostly sunny weather is forecast for western Canada over the weekend, although Alberta may see cloudier skies and some light snowfall. The new week may bring some fresh snow for British Columbia which is great news, although the heaviest falls are currently set to miss Whistler.
Following some fantastic snowfall in recent days, Utah and Colorado are set to see a glorious weekend of sunny weather. Current forecasts indicate that the settled weather is set to stay, although there is a possibility of some light dustings at some resorts in Colorado. Temperatures are set to rise slightly, but not nudge too far above zero at mid-mountain level.
A sunny week is also predicted for California, with slowly rising temperatures peaking at around +5 to +8 at mid-mountain level. Unsettled weather is expected from Tuesday onwards, bringing the possibility of some much needed new snow.
Across on the east coast, sunshine will certainly be at a premium over the weekend and in the next seven days. Some sunny breaks are expected, as is some light snow, perhaps amounting to as much as 20cm in some favoured locations. Temperatures are set to be slightly higher than of recent weeks, but are still set to remain below freezing, with an average of around -5C at mid-mountain over the weekend.
