Comments from other Mumsnetters:
Skiing in Breckenridge is "an absolute must for the kids." "There's a huge number of beginner slopes that are great for the kids" and "the ski school is wonderful"; "it takes the kids from 9.45am to 3.45pm and gives them lunch, so the adults are able to ski further afield." There are "good restaurants in the town" and now "there are direct flights to Denver now" there's even more reason to try it. A "fantastic, restored mining town that, if you can bear the flight, makes a great venue for family skiing."Read moreLess

I agree - it is a long flight but the runs are so uncrowded and well staffed so that you hardly queue and if you do PUSHING IN IS NOT TOLERATED! Lots of lovely wide blues, someone described them as being as wide as Belgium. Speedy and frequent bus ride for short hop into town, ski in and out, the total cost for this holiday for 10 days was not dissimilar to more expensive and much more crowded holidays in Europe. Don't believe them when they say you don't need to book lessons in advance, you do in busy periods, though prob only a few days in advance. Beaver Run is a bit 'tired' but has a good pool, lots of space, games room and is right on the slopes, our apartment was a good size. We went with Erna Low. (slightly cheaper!).Read moreLess
