Breck’s Top 10 hardest EpicMix pins
Can you ride every lift at Breck in a day? Or ski the Imperial Bowl 10 times? Have you snowboarded at Breck 25 times? 50 times? Attempt to get the hardest pins at Breck and you’ll have legs of steel and lungs ready for Everest.
Just see if you can get one of these pins on EpicMix this season.
10. Breck Summit
Make it to the summit of Peak 8 five times in one day and you’ll not only earn one of the best views in Colorado, but you’ll earn this pin — not to mention you’ll get a chance to ski some of the most popular terrain at Breck.
9. 7-10 Split
Breckenridge boasts four incredible peaks to ski across — all of which have their own attitude, style, and personality. Ride one chairlift on each mountain –consecutively through 7,8,9,and 10 — and you’ll unlock this pin and one heck of a story.
8. Peak 10
The Falcon SuperChair on Peak 10 does not access any blue, green, or easy runs. Which means, if you’re brave enough to ski the Falcon five times in one day, you’re brave enough to earn this pin.
7. 6 Pack
Just like with the Peak 10 pin, the 6 Chair at Breck doesn’t access any simple terrain, but it gives skiers and snowboarders a chance to get to some of the best terrain on the mountain. Ride the 6 Chair six times in one day and you’ll earn this pin.
The E-Chair at Breckenridge is home to some of the most advanced terrain on the mountain including The Windows, The Back 9, and Broadway. It’s also home to some of the best powder on the mountain. Lap this lift five times and you’ll earn the E-Street pin and a massive smile on your face.
If you’re serious about earning this pin — received for skiing 25 days in one season at Breck alone — you’ll be saying “I’ll be back,” again and again and again.
We’re not joking that you should bring your own oxygen when headed to the Imperial Express — at 12,840 feet in elevation, riding the Imperial Express lift means you’re riding the highest chairlift in North America. Ride it ten times, and that’s when you have some bragging rights.
For most people, getting 20,000 vertical feet in a day is pretty legendary. So if you are legendary for a 100 days in one season, you could get this pin — but it’s no simple task. Ski 2 million vertical feet at Breck in one season, and you’ll get this pin, you just may not have a full-time job anymore.
2. Tom’s Baby
What’s your goal for ski days this season? 10? 15? If you are even serious about your season, you should shoot for 50. Get all 50 at Breckenridge and you’ll earn this pin, named after an infamous gold nugget found in Breck in the early days of mining.
1. Breckenridge Conqueror
There are 31 lifts at Breckenridge across four peaks going all the way up to 12,840 feet. Think you can ski them all in a season? That’s nice but try doing it in one day. Ride them all in a day and you’ll earn the Breckenridge Conqueror pin. Hint: go with a plan to go big.
