Intermediate 31%:

Intermediate skiers & riders love Peak 7 at Breckenridge ski resort. Peak 7 has 7 blue runs with fantastic cruisy terrain, which you get to via the Independence Super Chair 6 pack. Claimjumper is one of the local's favourite blue runs, located on Peak 8 plus Northstar and Crescendo are also very popular. Two fast SuperChairs on Peak 9 give easy access to over 10 intermediate pistes, so you can take the lift up and ski down on Peak 9 run after run.

Advanced 19%:

Duke's Run on Peak 8 at Breckenridge ski resort has both bumps & groomed runs, so you can alternate if your legs get tired after those tricky bumps. You can take the T-Bar to get to Pika, Ptarmigan, White Crown & Forget-Me-Not and enjoy wide-open bowls with amazing mountain views. Peerless on Peak 9 can really teach you how to ski the moguls, while those who are already confident on bumps will love the runs off 6-Chair, especially if there's some deep powder. Take the Falcon SuperChair on Breckenridge ski resorts' Peak 10 to get to advanced intermediate groomed runs, steep & deep mogul runs, & the legendary tree runs of The Burn.
