Breckenridge Ski Resort will be celebrating two big and exciting milestones this winter season.  The first is the founding of the town of Breckenridge, which took place 150 years ago.  The second is the 25th anniversary of snowboarding at the Colorado resort.  Breckenridge was one of the first resorts to embrace snowboarding, and it held one of the first major snowboarding competitions in 1986, The World Snowboarding Championships.  To continue its snowboarding legacy, the resort hosts major events such as the Winter Dew Tour.  The Tour will hit the resort this year from December 17th until the 20th, and features men and women’s snowboard, both in the superpipe and slopestyle competitions.
