ANNUAL SNOWFALL: 300 INCHES
BEST FLOAT IN LAST YEAR'S ULLR FEST PARADE: HUGE PAPIER-MÂCHÉ VIKING
THE EXPERT: JESSE CSINCSAK, 26, PRO SNOWBOARDER AND WINNER OF THE BACHELORETTE, SEASON FOUR
Breckenridge is full of people who genuinely want to be here: families, ski bums, spring-breakers. Everyone. After skiing, head to Blue River Bistro, at the base of the gondola, for a drink. It's upscale, but there are no ties inside. Eat at Modis, a high-end modern spot overlooking downtown Breck. The scallops are amazing. I'd mosey over to Liquid Lounge to get my night started, then downstairs to Cecelia's, which has three bars and a big dance floor. The other thing is Ullr Fest, the annual celebration of the Norse god of snow, which happens January 10–16. There's a parade down Main Street with floats, costumes, and an inordinate amount of alcohol. HOT TIP During Ullr Fest, head to Modis and sit by the windows for a view of the parade.
