Breckenridge Makes Yahoo’s “Ten Great Mountain Towns” on Yahoo’s Travel Section.

Skier at Breckenridge ResortYep that’s what Yahoo says. If you look at the other towns listed you will notice that these are towns from around the world. Breckenridge is this cool and we’ve known it for a long time. Now that winter is setting in, and we know that it is since we had over a foot of snow recorded at the Breckenridge Ski Area last week and we are looking at another winter storm this week, it makes sense to remind everybody how awesome Breckenridge really is. Look below for some mountain statistics that show just how big and bad Breckenridge Ski Area is. Also remember that A-Basin is open and Keystone and Copper Mountain Open Friday. Breckenridge will be opening next Friday, November 11th. This is what we call saving the best for last.
