I have been living in Breck for about 3 years now and I am originally from the UK as well. Breck is a great little ski town and you will have a blast for sure. Are you staying for a full season?
Normally there is a lot of snow in town but you can generally get away with wearing trainers as they are pretty good about sweeping sidewalks/roads free from snow.
Best place for in bound powder riding in Breck is going to be the backside of Peak 10 or off the back of imperial chair. Although a better bet on a pow day is to head to vail/beaver creek, which has a ton of bowls that seem to accumulate a shit load of pow. I also like to ski A-Bay on a pow day as there is some pretty steep out of bounds stuff and is generally never too crowded.
Should be enough places in town to poach free wi-fi, most of the coffee shops in town have free internets.
Hit me up with a PM if you have any more questions.
