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
Sunny and settled weather is expected to continue across the western states of the USA over the weekend and into next week. Little is expected in the way of snowfall, with the next top up due on Tuesday 27th January, although what falls should only be light. This is bad news for California, where new snow is desperately needed following a three-week snow drought.
Eastern USA and Canada can expect a slight warming in temperature over the weekend, accompanied by sunny skies in the USA and light snow in Canada. Temperatures will still remain below freezing (-5C at mid-mountain), but will be by no means as cold as recent days. The temperatures are then forecast to plummet again on Sunday night and some more snow is expected to fall on Monday in the USA.
Western Canada is expecting an unsettled stretch of weather over the weekend. Alberta can expect some light snow as the temperatures remain below freezing, but further towards the coast rain is expected across British Columbia. On the highest slopes this will fall as snow, but for most, prepare for rain on Saturday and Sunday.
