Ski Spring Break: Breckenridge

My college roommates and I are planning a last-minute spring break ski trip, but we don’t know where to go yet. Which resort has the après ski scene for the college or post-college crowd? It has to be somewhere in North America, preferably out West.

Breckenridge is less hip, and more hippie—in a good way. The college and post-grad crowds that come to this classic, old, mining town in the mountains leave their pretentions behind to snowboard, ski, and have a good time.

APRES: The Motherloaded Tavern in town is always hopping at night, thanks to its slate of ever-rotating drink specials, weekend live music, $3 Whiskey Wednesdays, and Trivia Tuesdays.
