The skiing

Breckenridge is the second-busiest ski area in the United States, averaging upwards of 1.5 million visitors annually. And with an average annual snowfall of more than 100 inches, there’s a reason why so many powder hounds come here. Breckenridge Ski Resort comprises nearly 3,000 acres of skiable terrain spread across five peaks, 187 trails, and four terrain parks. Trails offer a solid mix of beginner, intermediate, and advanced terrain, offering something for everyone who wants to hit the slopes. Alternatively, Breckenridge boasts two Nordic centers for cross-country skiing.

The town

Historic downtown Breckenridge — heavily composed of original buildings that have stood for more than a century, a nod to the town’s gold mining history — is full of spots to relax after a day strapped into skis or a snowboard. There are plenty of bars and pubs for après-ski beers, including the original location of the booming Breckenridge Brewery, and a host of restaurants ranging from casual to formal. Dozens of shops line the streets, offering everything from sports gear to fine art. Due to the town’s 100+ years in existence, historical sites offer an intriguing glimpse into its past.

The location

Breckenridge is located within close proximity to many other popular ski resorts: Copper Mountain and Keystone are both within a 20-minute drive, for example. A bit further afield are Vail (about 60 minutes away) and Beaver Creek (another 15 minutes after that), both offering world-class slopes. To get to Breckenridge, Inspirato recommends flying into Denver International Airport and either renting a car or reserving private transportation for the scenic two-hour drive through the mountains.

The residence

Inspirato’s residence in Breckenridge is a five-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot stylish modern cabin that was just recently constructed. Inside, custom stonework lines the fireplace in the spacious living room, as well as the beautiful chef’s kitchen. Members can take in views of the valley and mountains from a private hot tub, then take a two-minute walk to the gondola, about 100 yards away, for speedy access to the slopes. This residence is available from November through April, making it an ideal home for a ski vacation.

In Breckenridge and beyond, the Inspirato Collection features incredible residences and five-star hotels and resorts. Pair those with expert Member Care and an Inspirato vacation is the best way to travel. Learn more about membership options and all the ways that members experience the world.
