With four peaks surrounding the resort, Breckenridge gives nothing away to its more illustrious sister resort Vail in terms of scenery. Furthermore, with an array of wonderfully groomed runs dissecting each of the mountains, there is excellent skiing to be had regardless of ability. Breckenridge is renowned as one of the best American resorts for beginners, with several slow-skiing runs ideal for timid beginners. The addition of the high-speed chairlift serving the vast array of beginners' terrain has added to Breckenridge's popularity amongst novice skiers. Peaks 8 and 9 are the best mountains for intermediate skiers, and although choice is limited, the skiing remains enjoyable, whilst Peak 10 is best suited to advanced skiers, offering a selection of moguls for which Breckenridge has become famous. There is an array of off-mountain activity, largely comprised of other sporting activity, whilst there is also a lively aprés-ski.
