Breckenridge Ski Resort announced Friday that the expanded terrain and two new lifts on Peak 6 will open for the first time ever at approximately noon on Christmas Day. The Colorado resort's first significant expansion since 2002 includes 543 acres of new terrain. The area features intermediate bowl skiing and a series of expert chutes.
“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 OpenSnow.com, sporadic light snowfall is possible at Breckenridge through Christmas.
