FRISCO — Ski Magazine’s annual resorts rankings are out, and Breckenridge Ski Resort was named the No. 9 best ski resort in the west.

“Breck has a unique combo of a great town, great and challenging mountain, sidecountry/hike-to terrain, beginner, and intermediate runs. And a great bus system that is so much easier than other resorts—15 minutes and you can be anywhere. Plus great food and of course nightlife,” one reader wrote.
