One of the world’s most popular ski and snowboard destinations, Breckenridge, Colorado consistently delivers year-round adventure and laid-back charm. Located just 90 miles west of Denver, in the heart of Summit County, Breckenridge Resort turns 50 in 2012 and a season-long party is in the works.
The town of Breckenridge’s mountain architecture provides a glimpse into a gold-mining past, with Victorian homes and inns dispersed among cozy boutiques, reputable art galleries and fine dining.
