Breckenridge is home to an excellent skiing resort that features over 150 different trails for various levels. Vacationers flock to this town each year from November to April to experience the 3,000 feet scenic decent from the mountain sides.
The busiest day of the winter season can bring in over 36,000 visitors to the town. The ski resort offers 31 lifts to make available over 2,300 acres of ski-accessible area. Locals plan months ahead of time to purchase season ski lift passes, as being without is rare for many active Colorado residents and vacationers.
It stands to be noted that Tiger Run Resort residents may only reside at their homes for a restricted amount of time each year as it is a resort community. Owners may occupy their homes continuously for 6 months or cumulatively a total of 8 months out of the year. However, this should not restrict residents from not enjoy the community while living there.
For families with younger children, the Summit County School District operates two elementary schools, the closest of which is only 3.5 miles south of the resort. Upper Blue Elementary is a school of under 300 students with a low student to teacher ratio of just 15. For older students, the county offers a middle and high school in Frisco that is 2.6 miles north of Tiger Run.
