Breckenridge Ski Map

Breckenridge Ski Area Information

For many skiers, the Colorado mountain experience isn’t complete without a few days at Breckenridge. It’s one of those resorts that’s definitive, it contains multitudes and draws everyone in with its unique combination of terrain, amenities, and culture. And plenty of that magic comes from Breckenridge’s unique climate. The mountain manages to average about 300 days of sun each year, while also getting about 300” of snow every winter. That combination is a recipe for a whole lot of bluebird pow days. It doesn’t hurt that Breckenridge is a hot spot for freestyle skiing and snowboarding as well. It was the first resort in Colorado to allow snowboarding, and that legacy holds, as Breck maintains world-class terrain parks.

When James Niehues painted this Breckenridge ski map in 2016, he set out to capture not just the mountain’s terrain, but its essence as well. And that respect shines through in the finished painting. You can make out every run on the mountain, as well as the base area and surrounding peaks. There’s no better way to commemorate your time at Breckenridge than with a painting of this iconic trail map.
