Default Season in Breckenridge

Hi folks. I'm planning on coming over from Scotland this year for a season in the USA, and from what I've read Breckenridge sounds perfect for me. Good snow, plenty terrain to explore (with the EPIC pass anyway) and good nightlife.

Could any of you guys that have done a season there, or maybe if you've just visited, give me an idea of a realistic monthly budget taken into consideration accommodation, partying a few nights a week and eating etc?

I'm also not too sure if I'd be better off staying in Frisco? Does it have a good nightlife etc?

Any info would be well appreciated. cheers

I dont know about the pricing but its def pretty high compared to other col mountains. Do yourself a favor and visit some of the less known mountains in Col while your down. Probably spend 50% less than breck

Compared to what other Colorado mountains? Telluride? Aspen? Steamboat? Vail? Crested Butte? Breck is going to be less than any of those. The rest of the areas are mom and pop's. Monarch, Wolf Creek, Loveland. Not really ski towns to speak of.

It is true that you will pay a premium to live in a ski town. That goes for anywhere.

Frisco is fine. It doesn't have as much going on as Breck, but it's a short free bus ride to Breck from Frisco. If you want to be right at the mountain and in the middle of everything, you'll want to live in Breck.

Depends when you get here and where you live for your budget. All the cheap places are sucked up now.

I was kind of hoping since Breck is more of a proper town it would be a bit cheaper for living compared to the likes of Whistler or Mammoth? I do plan to get around as many mountains as possible, but the EPIC season pass is incredible value!! I have around $8500 all in for the season, does that sound realistic?

Yeah I'll not be out til the end of October at least, waiting on my visa getting approved. Will there still be people looking to let our rooms by then you reckon? Apart from the local papers/listings, do you guys know of any sites/companies that specialise in season lets?

So Me and my friend have bought our passes and were planning on going to breck for like three months figured we could find a room to rent out and hit the pow. can anyone tell me if my GNU riders choice will do good in powder. I have only ever boarded East coast. And can i find a place to rent out around January or is that unrealistic.

No one rents for the season because they know they'll get burned and if you're not here it's even harder to find a place to live. 8,500 might get you through the season it might not I don't know how much you spend on partying, living, making fun.

Depending if you wanna drive or not Dillon is a nice town. We had a timeshare there for quite a while. It's only like 30 minutes away. They might be sig cheaper than Breck...

Craigslist is a pretty good bet for seasonal housing
