ABOUT SUMMIT VACATIONS
In the winter, the world-class peaks at Breckenridge come alive with skiers and snowboarders enjoying sunny days and amazing powder. Breckenridge ski resort recently made two improvements, which have made it competitive with the country's top resorts: Breckenridge now boasts the highest chairlift in North America, and it also has a gondola taking skiers and boarders directly to the runs from the parking lot so they can walk out the front door of their ski condo and practically onto the slopes. But not all of Breckenridge's winter guests come here to ski or ride the mountain; the main attraction for many visitors is exploring private scenery just outside their Breckenridge condos on snowshoes, cross-country skis or snowmobiles. Vacationers need not buy or bring their own equipment, as there are numerous rental shops in town with an abundance of inventory.
Breckenridge, Colorado is a preferred vacation destination for skiers of all levels because of the varied terrain, champagne powder and consistently sunny weather. But downtown Breckenridge provides a whole other reason to visit this charming town located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains any time of year. Founded in 1857, the buildings with shops, restaurants and lodging in Breckenridge are reminiscent of the Old West and the atmosphere is truly delightful. For more information on the history of the area, visit the Summit historical society. Perfect for family vacations, romantic getaways, or taking breaks from college, Breckenridge has a little something to appeal to everyone. Lodging rates and availability fluctuate with the seasons, but Breckenridge lodging includes enough condos, hotels, and private residences to satisfy the taste of any type of traveler.
