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 www.Facebook.com/Breckenridge or the new @BreckConditions Twitter account.
“We couldn’t be more excited about being able to open Peak 6 on Christmas Day,” said Pat Campbell, SVP & COO 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.”
