Hey Everyone,

Freeskier Magazine has just published their 2007 Park Guide.  Coming  
in at #3 is Breckenridge, Colorado.  Here's what they had to say:

Breckenridge is a terrain park powerhouse.  In November and December,  
the park is packed with B-level pros training for contests. Then in  
January, as everyone heads to Colorado for the US Open (Copper  
Mountain), X Games (Aspen), and the Aspen/Snowmass Open, it becomes  
ground zero for training.  Everyone from Corey Vanular to Candide  
Thovex show up at some point, and the scene absolutely goes off.
The reason pros coalesce around Breck is it's the only resort with  
jumps big enough to compare with those at the Opens and X. A triple  
jump line is the zone of choice, and it's one of the only places in  
the world where you can be hitting medium size jumps while TJ Schiller  
perfects his switch 10 a couple feet away.
Then there's the pipe - arguably the best in North America. Cut to  
perfection nearly every night in January, the walls are consistently  
huge and have precisely tuned trannies, making it the place to train.

Number of Parks: 5
Number of Features: 84  - two 8-foot mini-pipes, a 13-foot halfpipe  
and a superpipe; 20 jumps; 60 rails
