Breckenridge is 50 years old this winter, that’s nearly as old as our Product Manager Nick Laver (there is (not) a prize if you correctly guess how old he is/which one is older, answers on the website please!)
I am lucky enough to have visited Breckenridge a few times now and still love skiing the huge area and finding new terrain. There is loads of varied terrain, enough to keep the most diverse group of skiers happy with the gentle beginners slopes close to the town to the amazing cruisers and rollers off the Independence Super Chair over on Peak 8. The Imperial Super Chair drops you just shy of 13,000ft above sea level (highest lift access in Continental America) to access some incredible terrain, even for an intermediate skier like me, but I’m told that the double diamond skiing from here is even better!
Once the slopes are closed Breckenridge really comes alive with some great bars and restaurants. You can have a relaxed meal for two or hit the town and party all night long – that’s never really been an option for me while in town as I am exhausted after a long day on the mountain.
To celebrate this milestone we have some truly unbeatable offers in Breckenridge with savings on flights, accommodation AND lift passes – but these offers all finish soon so you need to let us know what you want to do and book soon.
We have some great rates on the United Airlines indirect flights, if you keep clear of Friday and Saturday travel you’ll get the very best price. To match these great flight offers you can stay at The Village at Breckenridge for 7 nights in January (including transfers from Denver) for as little as £849 per person. If you want to stay a bit longer, treat yourself to 14 nights for under £1200 per person!
At around 50 most of us are ready for pipe and slippers (Nick?) but Breckenridge is a long way from retirement – have you booked you holiday there for this winter? If not why not – it’s going to be one heck of a party starting 11.11.11.
See you there!!
