BRECKENRIDGE, COLO – Feb 13, 2009 – While most women across the country are hoping for roses, chocolates and jewelry this Valentine’s Day, black diamonds are a Breck girl’s best friend (black diamond runs that is).  With 36 percent of the mountain’s terrain rated as expert, Breckenridge Ski Resort offers all a girl needs this ski season; from cozying up with her partner on the T-bar before linking some turns together in the bowls, to discovering the local favorite stashes on the south side of Peak 10, or the never-ending runs of the Peak 7 Bowl via the Imperial Express SuperChair, the highest chair lift in North America.

 

Not ready for the double-black diamond terrain just yet?  The Breckenridge Ski and Ride School’s Big Mountain Experience is there to help guide you around and give you a few pointers when you’re peering over the edge of the Snow White chutes. 

 

Regardless if you in the singles line or sitting close together on the E chair, men and women agree – they love Breck; either for the variety of terrain, or the historic, 150-year-old town at its base. Come find out why Breckenridge received SKI Magazine’s People’s Choice Award and fall in love with Breckenridge all over again.
