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.
Peak 8 is one of the most coveted ski-in/ski-out addresses in the world. From here, accessing Breckenridge resort’s legendary slopes is literally one turn away. Getting to and from town is as simple as a short stroll and a scenic gondola ride, which is quite the adventure of its own.
