Slide 3 of 21

Breckenridge, Colorado

Why Go: Breckenridge’s Freeway Terrain park is home to some of the largest "features" (terrain that launches you off the ground) in the country. If you lack the skills, bravery or recklessness to hurl yourself 20 feet in the air, nearby Park Lane has more intermediate features. For those who wish to keep skis on the ground, the Lake Chutes also offer slopes that won’t induce vertigo.

Where to Après: The Breckenridge Brewery serves its own beers—like the signature amber brew Avalanche Ale—in a bar room with a view of the production facility. Later, skiers and snowboarders go dancing at Cecelia’s Night Club.
