Breckenridge has one of the top five parks in America and probably the world! There are usually six different park areas stretching 25 acres that are spread across Peaks 8 and 9 – all the way from mini shred to ginormous pro lines. It’s the perfect place for anyone of any level to practise freestyle, and you are pretty much guaranteed to progress if you spend some time here. They have the perfect set up, with mini rails, boxes and jumps in the two mini parks, plus a small park, a medium park (Park Lane) and pipe, and finally the expert park (Freeway). This has the biggest and best-built jumps and pipe you will find… well, pretty much anywhere! Just ask Billy Morgan, who landed his famous triple rodeo here last year.
Breck invest a lot into their shaping team, and it shows. They have some of the earliest pre-season jumps, and the best on-going grooming and maintenance throughout the season. Everything is set up with painstaking precision, creating a safe environment in which to train – they even radar test the jumps to get the speed just right! The only slight downside is access to the parks. There are no dedicated lifts and it can take a while to complete a lap.
