Breckenridge Gondola, The breck connect

The Breck connect gondola in Breckenridge, Colorado


    • Transports 3,000 vacation travelers per hour
  • Takes 10 minutes to get to the very top, the base of peak 8


  • 7,592 feet from bottom to top


  • 121 cabins


  • 28 towers


  • 391 feet of elevation


  • Two mid stations pick up ad let off at Shock hill and Grand lodge


The Breck connect gondola transports Breckenridge skiers from downtown Breckenridge to the base of peak 8 in comfort and style. At the base of peak 8 you will find the Bergenhof, which is the oldest restaurant on the mountain, the snowboard terrain park ( which recently hosted the winter dew tour), The colorado superchair and rocky mountain superchair ( high speed lifts), as well as a ski and ride school.

In the old days a nice drive up ski hill road would take you to the base, but with the construction of one ski hill place parking is hard to come by. However, parking is ample, but expensive, in one of several gondola lots that begin at ski hill road and go north through Breckenridge.

Some of the properties located around the gondola include River Mountain lodge ( visit us at to book our 1br), Mountain Thunder lodge, kingdom park town homes, ski hill condos, park place condos, and sawmill creek.

The gondola is a fantastic option for those vacation renters that are lodged at the north end of Breckenridge. When deciding to vacation in Breckenridge visit us at to book a vacation home in this area.
