    Great Time at Breck
    We had lots of fun skiing at Breckenridge. We weren't staying at the resort, so we bought our Epic Day Pass ahead of time. We practiced for a little bit on the beginner area, then my wife and kids went up the chairlift and came down the green slopes a few times. I didn't feel comfortable enough to go up the lift, but I still had a great time. We used our Epic Pass for a discount at the restaurant during lunch time, too. We had a great time!

    My Favorite Ski Resort
    Awesome ski resort in every way! We started skiing in Breck because many of the restaurants can accommodate our family member with food allergies. Now other resorts just don't compare. There are runs for every skill level. We've skied Breck with kids and as a couple. Lots of variable terrain! Even at peak times, lift waits are reasonable and staff help to manage the lines efficiently. The mountain always feels safe with lots of friendly and helpful staff everywhere, at any time. We've jumped into private ski lessons twice which have been amazing. This time we skied with Nate who was an awesome instructor! He reinvigorated our love of skiing and challenged us. There are lots of restaurant options from casual to high end. The food is always excellent. We rarely eat at the mountain top restaurants, but enjoyed noodle bowls that were very good this last time. The bus system is efficient. We book a ski-in condo, and getting to a lift is just a very easy and short 3-5 minute bus ride away. Buses run every 8-10 minutes. Love the casual and friendly Breck vibe. We always meet easy going and helpful locals. The only negative for us is the altitude adjustment. It takes a day to adjust when coming from the midwest. It also limits friends and family who are sensitive from joining us. Otherwise, Breck is a 10!

    Favorite Epic Resort in the Area
    My favorite resort in the area! A great all-levels resort with east greens, long & groomed blues, and a nice dose of adventurous blacks. Everyone can have a good time at this resort. Make sure you get over to Peak 6 for some fun & wild blues and blacks! Park in the Tiger Lot for the cheapest parking w/o sacrificing convenience.

    Enjoyable Ski Trip
    From the sweeping views from the top of the peaks, to the variety of terrain, it's no wonder Breckenridge is so well known. Even after a week, there's still new lines and powder stashes to be found. The ski school is a "must do" for beginners. My sister enrolled in a couple of sessions and just within that timeframe, her progression has greatly improved and now she's transitioning from greens to blue runs. As for the negatives; traversing between the peaks involves hiking or pole pushing along catwalks. Especially when getting from Peak 8 to Peak 7. Also, AVOID the on-mountain dining facilities at all cost. The food is reminiscent of standard cafeteria fare for outrageous prices. My partner and I ordered two plates of chicken fingers; fries; and 2 drinks. After the discount of my Epic pass, the total was nearly $50. In summary, Breckenridge is a great destination and has something for everybody; but there are certain things to be mindful of.

    Great experience!
    While I am not an expert snowboarder I really enjoyed this mountain, I did go with friends who were more skilled and took on some of the other peaks. It was a great experience. It was 6 of us and we went middle of week to weekend 2/14 - 2/18. It did get progressively busier each day. The first ski lift at main entrance was pretty packed early am (20 minute wait) but once you go up and start hitting various peaks there didn't seem to be any long waits at the other lifts. Even going down the mountain didn't seem crowded except for the catwalk I think the call it where it is a pretty narrow stretch which brings you all the way down to what appeared to be main entrance. Definitely enjoyable. I would recommend and go again.

Horrible service at the lifts from staff and extremely overpriced. Most of the lifts were closed and there was zero communication about that before hand. Waste of money. Hard to navigate the mountain.

If you are going on your own and bringing your own food, no complaints. But I would not recommend the Ski School to ANYONE. Two days and they really didn’t teach my kids much - I am an advanced skier and on day 3 when I skied with my two kids this was fairly clear. I get it’s a group but I would have expected more instruction than “follow me” and “ski more parallel” - the second statement (as my daughter noted) she didn’t even hear the instructor say until giving me the “lesson recap” at the end of the day - at which point she asked me what that meant. But what really killed me was that both my kids came home with stomach aches both days from “meh pizza” and then what was described as a gross hot dog and “chewy” French fries. The instructors apparently admitted that the ski school food is terrible when pressed by the kids.

Generally I don’t blame the people working there (except for the attitude I got from the ski school people when we were both renting and returning our equipment - PS don’t rent from ski school). It seems clear that they were insanely understaffed for Spring Break week this year. I saw evidence of this around the mountain - cold food sitting under warming lamps waiting for you to buy for crazy prices (looked like it might have tasted good when it was warm?) and only one cashier to check out a line that snaked around the entire cafeteria at 11:15am.

Is it a Breck problem? Or is it an Epic Mountain problem? I leave you to judge and hope that this is something that they hear and can fix. It is way too expensive of a sport to come away with this bad of an experience.

My first time skiing in the US. Breckenridge is a fantastic ski resort. A huge amount of well kept wide slopes - suitable for all skiers. Very helpful and friendly staff at Breck Sports, helped to get the right boots, skis etc. They have an overnight storage for skis and every day both collecting and depositing staff were so nice. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff in the whole Breckenridge resort were lovely, both at the lifts, guest support etc. Everyone was so friendly. Loved Robbies for Apres Ski, especially if you could get a spot by the outside fire pits.

Would love to go back to Breckenridge - they are doing everything right. So welcoming and helpful.

I just returned from Breckenridge and I felt so compelled to warn others about the zendo lift on peak 6 that I’m writing this review. And I don’t like it. But it needs to be done before someone gets hurt.

Friday morning, the zendo lift was moving somewhat fast but I’m not a stranger to fast lifts. However, Zendo lift has a VERY steep drop but then the lift does a jerk that will launch you in the air before you actually get a chance to push off. This lift launched my 250lb self forward with such a jolt that I couldn’t control my landing. To make it worse, it launched my girlfriend 5 ft into the air over my head. While we both initially tried to laugh it off so as to not ruin the rest of our day, it was really dangerous what happened and we heard a lot of other people saying negative comments about this lift as well the entire morning. We kept seeing people fall on this lift after we sat down for a while at the rest area below the lift. Someone is going to get hurt.

We snowboarded again on Saturday and Sunday and I noticed they slowed down the lift significantly. But I think whoever was operating that lift should be fired. It’s completely irresponsible to be letting that lift go that fast on Friday. That person or group were putting peoples health in danger.

Very disappointed in the ski runs that are groomed. Less than half of the normal ski runs are being groomed. This puts extra traffic on the few runs that are groomed and makes it more difficult/dangerous to ski the other runs that are not groomed. Hoping that Vail Management will groom more runs.
