Then, explore hundreds of spots that make up the best dining, shopping, and nightlife you can find in a ski holiday.
5)       There is more to do than ski and snowboard!   From riding the new Gold Runner Alpine Coaster at Peak 8 to cross country skiing and dog-sledding in town, there are plenty of winter pursuits to keep you busy on and off the slopes!
‘0h’ – And Aussies love Breck! Melbourne native and slope-style world champion Anna Segal is a member of the Breckenridge Freestyle Team, calling Breck home during the northern winter months, in addition to many other Aussie athletes. With an Olympic sized half pipe and three world-class terrain parks, it’s no wonder why! The value of the Aussie dollar makes Breck a ‘no-brainer’ for a snow holiday destination this year. Come and experience Breck Like Never Before.
