“We couldn’t be more excited about being able to open Peak 6 on Christmas Day,” said Pat Campbell, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Breckenridge Ski Resort. “This project has been years in the making, and thanks to the incredible efforts of the entire project team, we are poised to be able to open Peak 6 on schedule, and deliver the holiday gift of a lifetime to our guests from around the world.”

Specific trail openings on Peak 6 will depend on snow conditions and coverage. On Saturday, the resort reported 7 inches of new snow, a season total of 102 inches, and a base of 38 inches. According to meteorologist Joel Gratz of, sporadic light snowfall is possible at Breckenridge through Christmas.
