Snowboarders and skiers have a choice of 155 trails to choose from that range in experience level from moderate to expert and allow you to have the ride of your life. For all of you hard-core snowboarders out there, there is no place else you’ll want to be then hitting up the Freeway Terrain Park; it is legendary. You will need something to eat as well, right? That’s why you fuel up for the day with a great breakfast or brunch from Blue Moose, which serves American-style dishes and offers up some great ambiance as you sit to enjoy your meal. Inside, you’ll find walls lined with white banquettes, natural-wood tables, Windsor chairs, a carved moose at the entrance and a chandelier of multicolored cups and saucers with spoons hanging from the bottom of the saucers and a light bulb inside every single one of the cups; talk about originality. Or you can check out Daylight Donuts which is a donut shop designed in a diner-style with its own proprietary medium-roast coffee and donut mix. This franchise makes plenty of options when it comes to your donut and pastries like the always favorite filled donuts, bear claws, cinnamon rolls, apple fritters, sprinkled donuts, frosted donuts, glazed donuts and more. Others breakfasts are available on their chalkboard menu and Daylight Donuts is a crowd favorite with their ski and snowboard wall decorations and tables usually require a wait. You’ll need a place to relax or lay your head after your fun-filled day so either go to the Blue Sage Spa or the Allaire Timbers Inn to get some much needed R&R. At the Blue Sage Spa, you can get a nice hour-long Swedish massage that is so intense, but is the perfect way to ease those sores from your day of skiing or snowboarding. The Allaire Timbers Inn is the great place to stay with the cozy lobby fireplace and their rustic style lodge giving view of the great ski area. Visit Breckenridge to see what all this fuss is about, you won’t regret the trip. Image by Jatdoll on Flickr
