Homes on big lots bordering Nordic Center
Christie Heights is directly town-side of Breckenridge Nordic Center. There's a sidewalk to town providing an easy downhill walk. On the northside of the eight lots called Penn Lode subdivision, you'll run into Shock Hill neighborhood which is the only neighborhood in town with gondola access.
The gondola leaves the north side of Breckenridge between Main Street and Park Avenue, climbs Shock Hill, and continues on to Peaks 7 and 8 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort. Anyone in the Penn Lode neighborhood who wants to visit town or the resort can load or exit at Shock Hill (when the gondola is running).
Shock Hill is the first bench-like hill west of town and has a nice overlook of Breckenridge with only a short walk to town down the trails or sidewalks to anything you need in town.
On top of Shock Hill, the land levels out for a bit. Cucumber Creek meanders through the protected wetlands which are a habitat for birds, moose and other wildlife. Not far to the west, the terrain angles up again until it peaks along the Tenmile Range. On the prominent faces that make up this range are the ski runs of the Breckenridge ski resort. There are also plenty of world-class sunsets above the terrain.
