Despite the common perception that resorts in North America are a little challenging to get to in comparison with their more convenient European counterparts, once you have made that hop and skip across ‘the pond’, you will be amazed by the levels of service, unrivalled snow quality and quantity and sumptuous resort and hotel facilities. A stay in a hotel in Breckenridge will ignite a life long love affair with this World Class incomparable resort and leave you with the taste for both holidaying again in Breckenridge as well as trying and tasting some of her infamous neighbours such as Vail and Aspen.
With the highest altitude skiing in Colorado and all of her pistes cleverly organised so that skiers of all abilities can enjoy skiing down opposite sides of the same run, you are hard pushed to find a better mixed ability resort. You can also take full advantage of the ‘away day’ ski programme entitling you to try out the slopes of Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Beaver Creek.
If you want to keep the cost of your hotel to a minimum, the River Mountain Lodge represents really good value for money. With its ideal location, situated just at the base of the Four O’clock ski run on Peak 9, and only a couple of minutes walk from the resort centre, you have all the convenience of being placed right next to the bars and restaurants as well as being able to ski almost to your back door.
At the other end of the spectrum you can choose to stay in the Beaver Run Resort, proudly boasting its own quad chairlift direct from the hotel onto Peak 9. At the end of a long day you can enjoy her full spa facilities and the choice of her 3 restaurants all under the same roof. Babysitting services are also available if you are wanting to dine out with your little darlings as well as a fully stocked games room complete with mini golf to keep the ‘aforementioned’ occupied long into the night.
