Breckenridge Beginner Skiing
Easy Breckenridge Ski Terrain | Beginner Ski Trails
Most of the beginner ski terrain at Breckenridge is located at the bottom of Peaks 8 and 9. You can access this terrain easily without having to descend down any difficult ski trails.
Peak 9 Beginner Skiing
There is a large portion of the mountain near the bottom of Peak 9 that is dedicated to beginners. Skiers and riders can use the Carpet Lifts which are easy to get on/off of. These are especially useful for small children who are just learning how to ski.
The 2 photos directly below show some of the designated beginner skiing areas on Peak 9. These are accessible without riding any chairlifts. If beginners want to ride the Quicksilver Super 6 Chairlift, they will gain access to several more beginner ski trails that are much longer.
You can see one of the zones that is designed for kids in the picture below. Breckenridge also has a kids area that is called; Ripperoo’s Forest. This is a small ski trail that winds through the woods on Peak 9. Children can travel through a wooded adventure zone filled with fun themes and obstacles.
Peak 8 Beginner Ski Terrain
This area of Breckenridge has 4 ski carpets that can be used to get to the top of the beginner ski slope. There is also a small terrain park for new skiers and riders to experiment in. The Peak 8 base area has plenty of amenities for beginners including a ski school and child care center.
Below you can see the view looking up at the beginner terrain park on Peak 8. The jumps here are smaller than any of the other terrain parks and this is the perfect place to become comfortable on these types of features.
