Breckenridge stands apart from other towns in Colorado. This quaint, Victorian town is nestled in a high alpine valley at almost 10,000 feet in elevation. Breckenridge is removed from the hustle and bustle of Interstate 70 and is surrounded by the towering peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Breckenridge offers visitors an impressive array of activities, events, history, culture, nightlife and of course, world-class skiing and riding at Breckenridge Ski Resort! Even though Breckenridge is just a short drive from Denver, it is truly a world apart.
Breckenridge was founded by prospectors seeking gold and silver in 1859 and has grown into a world renowned vacation destination. The local community has worked hard to preserve and maintain Breckenridge’s unique and colorful history while continuously improving the town and the ski resort to meet the needs of modern day visitors.
The Grand Colorado on Peak 8 is perfectly positioned so that you can enjoy the benefits of ski-in/ski-out luxury lodging, have some family fun at the Breck Summer Fun Park, and easily access historic Main Street via the BreckConnect Gondola or by taking advantage of our complementary shuttle service.
