Breckenridge’s best powder stashes
Whether you are storm riding or out on a blue bird day, it’s easy to find great snow at Breckenridge. From tree glades to open bowls, here is a look at some of Breck’s best powder stashes. Follow along with our interactive trail map to find the best powder runs at Breck!
A locals’ favorite, Ore Bucket on Peak 7 offers well-spaced trees hiding powder stashes from top to bottom. From open to close, you are likely to find untracked snow in the nooks and crannies of this mellow, yet very enjoyable run.
The south side of Peak Ten boasts tremendous tree skiing. Charge through the well-spaced trees on the steep pitches of Elan and Trinity for fresh, deep snow. Catch some airtime on the rocks of Dark Rider, and fulfill your love for the bumps on Mustang.
Windows offers a little bit for everyone. From tight trees to open glades, catching these runs on a powder day will leave you grinning from ear to ear. Quick laps on E-Chair ensure you get the goods and aren’t standing in long lines.
Way Out off of 6 Chair takes a bit of a hike to get to, but the reward is worth every step. Often passed up for the more accessible neighboring runs, Way Out sees less traffic and is perfect for finding powder late in the day.
Art’s Bowl and Magic Carpet on Peak 7 catch the wind in just the right way, offering snow refills after the storm has passed. This long, epic run starts on the double fall-line of Magic Carpet, taking you to the steep pitch of Art’s. Hit up Ore Bucket on your way down to the base for a top-to-bottom soft run.
Beyond Bowl on Peak 6 works like a catcher’s mitt, trapping snow blowing over the Tenmile Range. Like Magic Carpet, Beyond Bowl fills up with chalky, creamy snow even on non-powder days. Worth the short hike, the terrain is not overly steep and is almost always soft.
