    The National Historic District in Breckenridge is very cute. Lots of little shops and restaurants. Unfortunately the sidewalks are not maintained at all from the snow, so be prepared and walk carefully.

    Easy drive over unpaved sometimes rough roads but views were nice. Just wished we caught the changing colors of the Aspens and other trees on the trails

    Great, short hike just minutes from Breckenridge. It's an easy, loop trail with some amazing views. You start in the parking lot and end in the parking lot. Don't miss out on this awesome, free activity for everyone!

    The snowcat tour was the highlight of our vacation! It was fun and our driver Gary told us so much about the area and wildlife (he’s so friendly, a really great guy!). We enjoyed the coco and s’mores in the old mining cabin, and the sledding! Highly recommend, and will definitely do it again if we come back.

    The lodge itself was so cozy and a hot spot for cross country skiing.

    Oh, man. The Smashburger was SO good, and the Apples to Apples was amazing presented in a smokin' dry ice whiskey barrel. Staff was friendly and attentive. Loved it!

    First of you need to make a reservation for parking at hikequandry.com
    The parking lot shares support with those doing quandary peak.
    There is a shuttle during the summer that takes you up a fire road 2 miles near the start of the trail.
    We were told it was a moderate hike that meandered through flowers next to streams.
    It was actually quite steep with lots of rocks and roots. Pretty scenery, however not for a beginner of those out of shape.

    Best beer in Breck and best vibes. The taproom in town is great and the brewery by Airport Road tends to be more locals. Vibe is the best in town and bartenders are great.

    We have done this trip twice and it has been highlight of our vacations both times. We did this the week before Labor Day so we miss a lot of the crowds, which is really nice.

    We were staying in Breckenridge and this time we decided to drive to Frisco and rent from one of the companies there. We wanted to take our time in Copper Mountain so by renting in Frisco we didn't have to rush back to catch a shuttle back to Breckenridge.

    We have two girls 12 and 10 and this was not hard for them. This is a very accessible ride for all ages. The one challenge for our 10-year old was she was not used to a bike with hand brakes.

    It's hard for me to do, but I recommend taking your time on the first half of the ride (up to Copper Mountain) and not to try and set any speed records. Otherwise, the trip will be over before you know it and you'll have missed a lot of great views and picture opportunities.

    Copper Mountain was a lot of fun to take a break and check out all of the activities there. The conference center has a locker room with restrooms and a water filling station for your water bottles. There are lots of clean restrooms all around, but this was the only water filling station we found.

    We recommend this trip to anyone who goes to the area with a few tips:
    - Bring and drink water
    - Pace yourself in Copper Mountain because you still have more riding to do
    - Wear layers that you can take off as the day warms up or just be ok with a chill in the early part of the ride

    Completed climb of quandary peak on Monday. A hard but rewarding climb. We were surprised to see snow on the peaks as the sun rose! It made the climb a bit harder but beautiful. We took our time up and down, used much less h2o and food than expected. Weather was sketchy with fog, sleet, rain and sun all in the same trip. Did not see any mountain goats, but saw many Pikas and several mountain grouse. If you’re from a low level home be sure to train - 14k+ is not joke. Fun trip and views amazing.

    This area of the Breckenridge complex is best for brand-new/novice skiers and for solid Green and flat-groomed Blue skiers. It can be crowded, so be ready for some waits. The base area is well suited for rental, with a number of gear rental and retailers literally between the street and the base of the Quicksilver Super 6 chair. It can really move some people but on the weekends even this capacity is very quickly overwhelmed. If you are an experienced skier looking to get up the mountain, starting at the bottom of Peak 9 is probably not your best bet.

    The Peak 9 lifts do directly service the somewhat hidden Falcon Super Chair to the top of Peak 10 and its Black-only runs down.

    The Maggie is at the bottom of Peak 9, your typical ski snack bar, with overpriced and overcooked food. It's spacious, but fills up very quickly at lunchtime.

    I found the staff support at the bottom of Peak 9 to be quite good, with very engaging and helpful folks at all stations. I arranged lessons for a couple in my party and liked all of the instructors.

    Did a tour in October. The history of Barney Ford including the house was absolutely captivating. We learned a great deal about Breckenridge and its famous historic residents. A must see/do!

    The welcome center was our first stop when we arrived in Breckenridge. The lady at the desk gave us a map and went over where we could find different things. She gave us the times different places and things open and we were on our way. The welcome center has public restrooms and a nice little museum that tells about the history of Breckenridge. It's a really cool spot!
