Native's Guide to Skiing in Breckenridge

Getting organized for your ski day at Breckenridge Resort is a task in itself. Do you need to make a reservation as well as purchase a lift ticket?  What kind of gear will you need?  Where can you rent snow pants and a winter jacket?  What’s the latest update on skiable terrain?  Here’s your guide for all the steps you need to take to get on the slopes.

Purchase Your Lift Tickets

A lift ticket to get you up the mountain is arguably the most important thing (other than the gear itself) to purchase.  Breckenridge Ski Resort makes purchasing lift tickets easy online and advises visitors to purchase their tickets 7+ days in advance. Lift tickets may be purchased the day of, but there is a chance the resort could be sold out.  Space is limited, so be sure to plan your days on the slope before anything else and reserve your lift ticket early!

Lift Ticket FAQ

When should I purchase a lift ticket?

We suggest purchasing a lift ticket as soon as you have booked your trip. If you need a last-minute lift ticket, they are available at the ticket office. Ticket offices typically have long lines which can be avoided by purchasing in advance.

Does a lift ticket give me access to the mountain?

Lift ticket, day pass, reservation – it’s one in the same. Your lift ticket gives you access to Breckenridge Ski Resort during their operating hours the day you purchased the lift ticket for.

Is an Epic Day Pass the same thing as a lift ticket?

Epic Day Passes are part of a series of different passes skiers and snowboarders can purchase for the season. These are now unavailable and lift tickets are what will be sold on a day by day basis for the remainder of the season.

Rent Your Ski and Snowboard Equipment

Next line of business – your ski equipment.  You can’t have a good day on the slopes without the correct gear, no matter what skill level you are.  Book the best equipment at an incredible price with Breckenridge Ski & Sport.  With beginner, intermediate, and demo ski and snowboard rentals, we have a rental for every skier and rider!

Get To The Slopes

Between paying for good parking at the base of the gondola and navigating mountain roads, a rental car is more of a hassle than its worth. For your airport transportation to and from Breckenridge, book Peak 1 Express. With the most shuttle options of any mountain shuttle provider, they will get you to the slopes in no time!

 Breckenridge Ski & Sport also offers free in-town transportation to get you fitted with your gear and cruising down some terrain in no time.  If you have a vehicle, opt for free parking in the Airport Road lot for the day, then utilize the wonderful free bus system throughout Breckenridge on the way back.
