Who put a coaster in the middle of the ski slope?

Before you start thinking that every ski resort is the same, may we introduce you to the Gold Runner Coaster at Breckenridge, Colorado.

It’s not enough that the mountain has miles and miles of killer ski and snowboard trails, terrain parks for every ability level and abundant wildlife slopeside, they also have a kicking roller coaster on mountain.

We’ve been to seven ski resorts across the Rocky Mountains this season but this was definitely a first.

If you’re coming, take our advice and buy an all day pass and come over whenever you need a ski break.

    Haven’t done the Gold Runner Coaster in the winter yet, but I’ve rode it the last two summers, and I agree, it’s out of this world fun!
