Trip Ideas: Breckenridge, Colorado

Breckenridge, Colorado: Huge, clean jumps, creative rails, and a 22-foot superpipe. But there's more than just a terrain park.
Trip Ideas: Breckenridge Colorado tout

WHY: Here’s the reason so many pro freestylers live in Summit County: huge, clean jump lines, creative rail setups, and a 22-foot superpipe. They’re the hallmarks of Breck’s parks, but you can find smaller features and big-mountain terrain, too.

WHAT: Don’t want to huck your meat? Head to Peak 10 to ski steep, tight trees, or check out Peak 6’s newly opened glades and big bowls.

WHERE: To party, indulge in Cecilia’s riotous late-night dance scene. In the morning, head to Clint’s for breakfast sandwiches.
