It wasn't clear from your post whether you are flying or driving. If you're driving or otherwise have time to go a bit further out of your way, either Telluride or Crested Butte would be great destinations. T-Ride has the best restaurants of the three and the most beautiful mountains -- the San Juans. Crested Butte is where Mountain Biking was born (there is some disagreement about this claim) and is a very cool little town. But you'll have a good time in Breck too if you are flying in and out of Denver and don't have time to explore the Western Slope.
