ne of Colorado's most popular resorts, Breckenridge has expert skiing up to 12,998 feet if you are prepared to hike for it. With the addition of Peak 6 a few years ago, Breckenridge now has five mountains, named Peaks 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. The addition of Peak 6 provides an above tree line bowl experience for intermediate skiers who are accustomed to blue square trails. Peak 8, with half of the resort's 2000+ skiable acres, is largely classified as expert terrain. Peak 10 is also mainly for experts, with 63% of its terrain classified most difficult. Most of the gentler slopes are on user-friendly Peak 9 which has almost half of the resort's lifts and snowmaking covering a quarter of its terrain.
Breckenridge is not purpose-built, rather it is an original mining town with 171 listed buildings. The town was founded in 1859 and is the oldest continually inhabited community in the Colorado mountains. As you'd expect, there's a huge choice of things to do off the slope and a vast range of lodging options, with an accommodation capacity of 23,000. The variety of meals served up by the 50 or so restaurants in town is possibly unequaled at a North American ski resort. Dining options include Cajun, French, German, Hunan Chinese, Java, Mandarin, Mexican, Native American, Northern Italian, Organic, Rastafarian, Southern Italian, Sushi and Vegetarian.
BSC cancellation policy:
The Club does not intend to unduly penalize a trip participant who cancels from a BSC trip. However, other trip participants should not have to incur additional costs due to your cancellation.
Deposits and payments made toward the trip reservations being cancelled will be held until such time as a determination can be made that the Club or trip participants will not incur additional costs due to non-recoverable costs.
Non-recoverable costs are defined as those that are associated with the trip that due to contractual obligations cannot be recovered when the individual cancels his/her trip. Non-recoverable also include those costs associated with replacing a person or persons on a trip (i.e., name change charges on airline tickets, etc.) Refunds, if any, will be made based on the non-recoverable involved plus a cancellation fee. Cancellation costs will not exceed the cost of the trip. Club cancellation fee will be dropped if non-recoverable costs exceed 50% of the trip cost.
Replacement of a trip participant by a trip participant is strictly prohibited. Only the Trip Leader or Assistant Trip Leader can replace a trip participant who is unable to go on the trip. The canceling trip participant may suggest a replacement candidate to the trip leader or assistant trip leader, however the canceling trip participant is responsible for the cancellation fee (if applicable) and any non-recoverable costs.
