As one of the U.S.’ most beloved and visited ski resorts, Breckenridge has all the essentials on tap: varied skiing with epic views, a lively nightlife scene, accommodations and dining options to fit every budget and a picture-perfect historic downtown.
Only 100 miles from DIA, it’s incredibly convenient and affordable to access. It’s also just 30 minutes from Keystone, a kiddo’s winter paradise with on-mountain snow forts and a weekly village parade featuring Ripperoo every Saturday at 4 p.m.
A couple weeks back, Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job hire Jackson Lebsack completed the Summit County leg of the journey in Breckenridge and Keystone. Here’s his “best of” roundup.
