Breckenridge Peak 6 Expansion Means More Skiable Acres

If you haven’t heard, there’s good news at Breckenridge for the 2013/14 ski season. In August 2012 Breckenridge received approval from the U.S. Forest Service to develop the area. After more than a year of installing lifts (two to be exact), cutting new trails (10) and building warming huts (two, one of which houses Ski Patrol), Breckenridge Peak 6  will open for the ski and snowboard public’s enjoyment this year. Breckenridge Peak 6 Expansion

Located looker’s right of Peak 7, the Breckenridge Peak 6 expansion means 543 new acres of skiable terrain and a 23 percent overall terrain increase. The new terrain is most enticing for intermediate to advanced intermediate skiers, as the new area boasts being the “first above-treeline intermediate bowl terrain.”  Speaking of bowl skiing, Peak 6 adds an additional three bowls to Breckenridge’s gamut.

Sidecountry enthusiasts and powder-seekers can still get their kicks on Peak 6, since 143 acres of the 543 are hike-to access.

To learn more about Breckenridge’s expansion and get a feel for the new terrain, sit back, relax and watch the video below.

Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com managing the website and blog content, I couldn't be happier. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
