Introduction to Breckenridge
Breckenridge is a unique Victorian ski town originally settled in 1859 during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. In the early 1860's the area supported over 8, 000 prospectors and the Gold Pan Saloon (103 N. Main Street) was open for business. By the early 1870's gold panning declined along with the town population (51 people) when hydraulic mining created another gold boom and surge in population.
In 1961, Breckenridge transformed itself into a ski town that is not only fun, but also offers surprisingly affordable lodging. With a charming historic downtown (350 historic sites) full of nightlife and an amazing ski mountain, Breckenridge is easily one of Colorado’s favorite ski vacation resorts.
Breckenridge MountainBreckenridge is located approximately 120 miles west of the Denver airport (DEN), Breckenridge offers 2, 908 acres of amazing ski terrain, with roughly 300 inches of snowfall per year. Thirty Four lifts service Breckenridge, which is renowned as an advanced skier's mountain, although it functions equally well as an intermediate's paradise. The terrain and chairlift access around the mountain (five peaks) makes it a perfect fit for the whole family.
The Breckenridge lift ticket is also valid at Arapahoe Basin and Keystone (including night skiing). A multi-day Breckenridge/Keystone ticket (3-5 days) is packaged to include 1-2 days at Vail and Beaver Creek.
The Town of BreckenridgeBreckenridge was originally a mining community, which swelled into a booming town after the discovery of gold in 1859. Once the quest for gold faded, however, its residents moved on in search of new ventures and the population dipped to a mere 400. It wasn’t until 1961, when Breckenridge became a popular vacation destination for thousands of skiers each year that the town grew and prospered. A true vestige of the past still remains within one special building: the Gold Pan Saloon at 103 North Main, established during the 1859 gold rush, this is one of Breckenridge’s original businesses and the oldest continuously-operating bar West of the Mississippi. Today, the now-historic buildings are home to fabulous restaurants, boutiques and other après ski hang-out spots. With more than 30 bars, pubs, and restaurants on Main Street, Breckenridge has something for everyone from a casual atmosphere to dance clubs. Breckenridge also host events year-round such as The Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships, Uller Fest, concert series and more. Make sure to check out what events are going on when you are in Breckenridge.
