Annual Skier Visits: 1,600,750

Less than 20 miles as the snowflake flies from its sister resort of Vail, Breckenridge vies closely for the No. 1 most-visited spot; it even temporarily claimed the lead in the 2007–08 and 2009–10 seasons. Breck’s selling points include a lively, historic downtown, North America’s highest-elevation chairlift (the 12,840-foot Imperial Express SuperChair), and 2,358 acres spanning four mountains—for now. The Forest Service recently approved a controversial expansion, adding 543 acres and a fifth peak for the 2013–14 season.
