You need to install or upgrade Flash Player to view this content, install or upgrade by clicking here.

Fifteen teams of snow sculptors from ten different countries have already begun carving what they hope to be the winning piece in Breckenridge’s annual Snow Sculpture Championships. The teams began the sculpting process Tuesday at 11 a.m. and 65 hours later on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. the teams must be finished with their work. The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday at 3:30 p.m., but curious visitors are encouraged to come and view the process and the final products anytime starting Jan. 24,

Breckenridge is expected to see snow accumulation in the neighborhood of 2 to 4 inches on Friday. Come Saturday, temps will range between 18 to 28 degrees and not a trace of that bone chilling wind we all love/expect. With last weekends snow firmly packed into corduroy and additional snow on the way, conditions are shaping up everyday. What are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and give us a call 1-888-840-4170

Pine Ridge is almost fully booked for this weekend, but we do have a few remaining units. Find our availability here (hit your refresh button for the most current results).

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. Jan 20, 2011 – Today Breckenridge Ski Resort opened upper mountain lifts the T-Bar and 6 Chair, making local powder dreams come true just in time for this weekend. Thanks to a remarkable effort by the Breckenridge Ski Patrol, 250 new acres of advance terrain served by these lifts is now open. In addition to the recently opened E-Chair, Breck skiers and riders can enjoy this rapid-fire increase of terrain openings in recent days, as Mother Nature has supplied Breck with 14 inches of snow in the last 7 days.

National Weather Service forecasts up to 10 new inches to fall over the weekend at Breckenridge Ski Resort. A chance of snow continues into next week with a low pressure system moving through Colorado.

Breckenridge Ski Resort expecting 9 to 13 inches tomorrow
