Steamboat or Breckenridge?

Jump to last reply

I am following up from my previous post about a Christmas destination for my family next year and would just like some opinions on my options.

I have been shopping around for a condo to rent. I have found one in Breckenridge that I really like (after searching through ALOT of them). I have just had a look at condos in Steamboat. Basically we can save $1000 on accommodation by staying in Steamboat (not a ski in/out property obviously but still a nice condo convenient to everything). So here are the pros and cons for me. We will be taking the airport shuttle to either of these destinations, not hiring a car (no snow driving experience), and the price is not much different to get to either place. Another thing to note is we will probably only ski 1 or 2 of the days we are there, we are not going just to ski but to experience a white Christmas. Our kids are young 3 and 6.

Breckenridge

Pros - Easy to get to from Denver
Great shopping and restaurants downtown
We can day trip to other areas and outlet shops in Silverthorne (shopping very appealing)
Cons - altitude (have had altitude sickness before - not nice), very busy

Steamboat

Pros - altitude, laid back atmosphere, hot springs, seems very family friendly, cheaper accommodation
Cons - getting there will take longer

Anything else I should consider between these two destinations?

Thanks!
