  • Easiest: 14%:
    Breckenridge boasts some of the best learning terrain anywhere. Skiers and riders will find most beginner trails located off Chair 7 on Peak 8, including a portion the 3.5 mile Four O' Clock run, the longest trail at Breckenridge, and the Quicksilver Super6 and A lifts on Peak 9.
  • More Difficult: 31%:
    An intermediate's paradise, Peak 7 is home to seven new gently rolling more difficult runs, accessed by a six-passenger SuperChair. Undoubtedly the local's favorite, Claimjumper is located on Peak 8 in addition to Northstar and Crescendo. Two high-speed SuperChairs on Peak 9 access more than ten intermediate trails for non-stop skiing and riding.
  • Most Difficult: 19%:
    Duke's Run on Peak 8 offers a winning combination of both bumps and groomed terrain. Take the T-Bar up to Pika, Ptarmigan, White Crown and Forget-Me-Not for wide-open bowls and stunning views. Peak 9's Peerless is a great place to learn how to master the bumps, while bump masters will appreciate 6-Chair, especially on a powder day. A quick ride up the Falcon SuperChair on Peak 10 wisks skiers and riders to three advanced intermediate groomers, steep and deep bump runs, and the legendary glades of The Burn.
  • Expert: 36%:
    Peak 7 offers vast steep terrain without the trees at a 45-degree pitch. On Peak 8, the experienced skier and rider can enjoy amazing alpine vistas from atop Horseshoe Bowl (lift access) or Imperial Bowl at 12,998 ft via the new highest lift in North America! Hike to Lake Chutes for a 55 degree pitch (extreme terrain), between 10 and 80 feet of cornice, rocks to jump and of course, fresh tracks. Peak 9 features tree skiing at it's best. The Windows is an easy hike (anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes depending on a skier or rider's speed) from the Patrol Hut atop Peak 9. The South Side of Peak 10 sports big fat bumps, hidden kickers and glades - all without seeing another soul (or at least many souls).
