Yeah-yeah! Vail Resorts (parent company of Breckenridge Ski Resort) announced today that they started construction of the new Peak 6 expansion of the ski area. The Terrain will be on the mountain just north of Peak 7 (go figure) and bring 543 acres of new intermediate to expert terrain.
The new Peak 6 Terrain will be 400 acres of terrain serviced by 2 new lifts and 143 acres of hike to terrain. The 2 new lifts will be a high speed 6 person chairlift and a fixed grip chair.
The new terrain on Peak 6 will open during the upcoming 2013 – 2014 ski season with both new lifts operational.
According to the Vail Resorts press release: “With Peak 6, Breckenridge will now have five huge peaks, 2,901 acres, four terrain parks, a 22ft Superpipe, 11 bowls, the highest chairlift in North America, family-friendly terrain and a world-class ski school, all situated above an authentic, hip mountain town with awe-inspiring views. Renowned for the welcoming spirit and friendly character of their locals, with over 200 restaurants, bars, and shops, and numerous year-round activities and events, there are many good reasons why ‘Breck’ is one of the most popular ski resorts in the Western Hemisphere.”
We can’t wait! Mo-betta skiing and riding is on the way!
