Seat of the Tenmile Range

From the moment gold was discovered in this gem in the Western Slope back in 1859 to its current identity as a mecca for skiing, snowboarding, and extreme sports, Breckenridge is a historic and humble mix of elegant shops and world-class skiing. Breck is hip enough to host the Dew Tour, a competitive event that draws celebrities from all over the globe. Travelers from all walks of life are drawn to almost 3,000 skiable acres. With a nod to its rich history as a mining town during the Gold Rush and an abundance of friendly locals, this unbuttoned retreat is both approachable and unassuming, never sacrificing your vacation must-haves: comfort and style.
