Breckenridge, Colorado: Artsy Mountain Town with World-Class Skiing
Like many villages in the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge began as a mining boomtown when gold was found there in 1859. Brothels and saloons soon popped up to accommodate miners. A century later, faced with a dwindling population, Breckenridge reinvented itself as a ski destination. Today, it's among the top ski towns in Colorado—right up there with Vail and Aspen.
The slopes open for the winter in mid-November. Breckenridge Mountain is covered with 155 trails and 25 acres of terrain parks. Take a ride on the Imperial Express chairlift, the highest of its kind in North America at a staggering 12,840 feet.
If you’re visiting before ski season, there’s still plenty to do. Downtown Breckenridge has a quaint Main Street that's lined with carefully preserved Victorian-era buildings housing art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. You can also tour the Country Boy Mine, where novices and pros alike can explore a historic restored mining site.
