Breckenridge Expansion = 23% Increase In Terrain For Next Season

By

Starting next season, Breckenridge will be offering up access to 5 new high-alpine bowls, 543 new acres and a 23 percent increase in skiable terrain. The Peak 6 expansion will be Breckenridge’s first expansion in more than a decade.

“For the resort, the project was hard won, fraught with bureaucratic hurdles and pushback from a community loathe to see acres of healthy trees be cut in a forest already devastated by the pine beetle epidemic. Though the project’s opposition hasn’t yet conceded defeat — there’s talk of litigation relating to the U.S. Forest Service decision to allow the project — approval on the expansion was a big win for the resort, one it’s preparing to leverage with other Breckenridge businesses.” summitdaily.com
