Iowa Ski Club Trip to Breckenridge, Colorado - March 3-10, 2018
Breckenridge  - Five Peaks—A Lot of Skiing

The back bowls of Breck's Peak 9 offer challenges for the most expert of skiers, while the entire town’s mountains (yes, plural) provide great beginner, intermediate, and black diamond slopes. Starting at 9,600 feet, the summit rises to 12,998—just under 3,400 vertical feet. There is nearly 3400 acres of skiable terrain served by 34 lifts.  Our ski-in accommodations at Mountain Thunder Lodge are near the gondola.  Being able to traverse between the mountains on ski trails only adds to the varieties of fun to be had at Breckinridge!
Breckenridge Town.  Quite the quintessential ski town, it was formed in 1960 specifically because of the skiing potential. And the town has grown to suit that purpose. Breckenridge is well known for its downtown area with its quaint shops, wonderful restaurants, and latest in alpine fashion. Whether it’s an after-dinner brandy you’re after, or dancing at the disco, a scoop of ice cream and some coffee, or just a beer at a local microbrewery, you'll find it here. And the restaurants and warm pubs of Frisco are right down the road.
