When a ski resort has 55% of its surface rated as difficult, the chances of finding black or double black diamond terrains should be quite high. That is why Breckenridge is one of the favorite destinations by ski aficionados particularly the experts. Allow us now to showcase, albeit briefly, the most exciting terrains this resort can offer.
We kick-off at Peak 8, easily the most populated of the 4 peaks mainly due to its diverse terrain and the addition of the Imperial Express Super Chair that has made many difficult terrains accessible.
Imperial Bowl The moment you get down from the Imperial Express, you would be standing in double diamond territory, specifically that of the Imperial Bowl, a wide stretch of steep slopes. If youre an intermediate wanting to up the ante, this is where you should go first since it is easily accessible and the area is wide enough for missteps.
Lake Chutes and Snow White The two locations in Breckenridge that are ranked as extremely difficult terrains. Each of them is basically made up of very steep chutes, mostly going up to around 50. This is not the place for mere aggressive spirits. Those who dare to ski down these slopes are not only aggressive but highly skilled as well.
T-Bar and Chair 6 Not only do these two give you access to the Imperial Express Super Chair, they also take you to a wide selection of groomed black diamond runs on both sides of Peak 8. If you continue northwards in the direction of Peak 7s summit, youll be led to another string of black diamond runs, only this time, they are mostly partially groomed. This area is also the site of four double diamond terrains: North Bowl, Whales Tail, Peak 7 Bowl, and Arts Bowl.
The top of the T-Bar also leads to a foot trail to the Horse Shoe Bowl a wide, steep slope of powder that is pretty smooth at the middle. On both sides a little lower than it are two more double black-rated bowls called Contest and Cucumber.
Peak 10 is basically all about Breckenridge black diamonds, so were just going to round them up as one here. The idea is this: if you want a wide selection of black-rated terrains, then head on straight to Peak 10. Trees and moguls are spread all over the place so youll be doing a lot of ducking, dodging, and maneuvering on a high speed dash to the base.
That was a pretty short summary of difficult terrains in Breckenridge. Well, what are you waiting for? Grab a ski trail map to see where those places are at.
The Breckenridge Ski Resort is the place to go for the perfect winter jaunt. The fantastic breckenridge ski is the discounted package for couples, with variety of amenities and features. Hot tubs, indoor/outdoor pool, breckenridge ski resort, wireless internet access, on-site chair lift and arcade are the real fun at Breckenridge village.
Towards the end of the run, I hit a pretty good size hill faster than I should have and ended up leaning back. Right when I thought I saved it, my skis went out from under me.
