Big news from Breckenridge Ski Resort, which announced today that the resort’s new Peak 6 expanded terrain and lifts will open for the first time ever to the public at noon on Christmas Day. The opening will be the first big one at Breckenridge since the Peak 7 expansion in 2002.

Two new chairlifts will be open on Christmas Day: the Zendo Chair and Kensho SuperChair, which will both start running at noon.

Lifts, trails and terrain for opening day on Peak 6 will be dependent upon weather conditions and snow coverage, which you can check for updates at or the new @BreckConditions Twitter account.
