Breckenridge, Colorado

Colorado’s Rocky Mountains have no shortage of destination ski towns but few can rival the international notoriety of marquees like Vail or Aspen. Breckenridge, however, is a strong contender. At the base of the Tenmile Range, home to the 14er Quandary Peak (14,265 feet), Breckenridge offers up unbeatable access to the west side of the divide as well as a four-star ski area. The mountain biking is long and steep, the backcountry terrain is expansive and challenging, and the snow can be downright dreamy. In the winter, the resort has a cult following with big mountain junkies and park skiers alike and the backcountry is bustling. During the summer months, pick your sport and the White River National Forest (to the West and North) and the Pike National Forest (South and East) have you covered. There’s a reason the 4.6 square miles of Breckenridge hosts 4,736 year-round residents – adventure in the Rockies can’t be beat.
