Breckenridge Ski Resort has always been a hub for freestyle skiers and snowboarders. Winter sports lovers in general adore the endless supply of vacation rentals and hotels. Add the spectacular superpipe and a giant area of supreme terrain and voila, Breckenridge, one of Colorado’s most visited mountains.
High score on Superpipe
Breckenridge resort has hit high marks in ski and snowboard media for its massive and beautifully-shaped superpipe located at the Freeway Terrain Park. The pipe has been ranked No. 1 in Transworld Snowboarding Magazine seven times since 2001, and sits a close second on the off years.
The superpipe stands out from others in the country due to some serious tender, love and care it gets from the Breckenridge pipe shapers. Every three days the 325-foot pipe is groomed, and its 15-foot walls are buffered in detail. Shapers work diligently with local pros to keep the pipe riding experience smooth and satisfying throughout the season.
A pipe for every rider
In addition to the Breckenridge superpipe is a smaller, less intimidating halfpipe ideal for beginner and intermediate freestylers. Breckenridge is known for its thoughtful layout encouraging riders and skiers to advance at a steady pace. In fact, the mountain shines in park and pipe progression for all levels.
Overall perfect for any skier and rider
Breckenridge is a popular mountain because of its high fun factor and suitable terrain for all skiers and riders.
