BRECKENRIDGE PEAK 6 EXPANSION

This season the biggest ski resort expansion in North America in more than a decade will take place as Breckenridge Ski Resort adds Peak 6 to their skiable terrain during the 2013/14 season. This huge expansion will provide more above tree line skiable terrain for our intermediate & expert skiers and riders, as well as allow for a better guest experience by creating more space for guests to explore.
This is the biggest news in the ski industry in a very long time, and Breckenridge is excited to be able to share this historic event with you. Peak 6 will open during the Winter 2013-14 season. The projected opening day for the Peak 6 lifts and terrain will be announced early during the winter season as construction comes to a conclusion and the snow begins to fly.

The Peak 8 Ski Area (as it was first known) opened on December 16, 1961 with one Heron double chair and a midway unloading station in addition to one short learners T-bar.
