5. Breckenridge, Colorado
When five parks, two pipes, and over 3,000 acres of terrain combine, it’s bound to be good. Breck’s parks and pipes are a staple in the poll, but don’t sleep on their long laps and sidecountry terrain of Peaks 7, 8, and 9. With new amenities at the base of Peak 8, staples like Breck’s eternally awesome main street and the Dew Tour hitting December 16-19, 2010, the place is going to be popping.
