Vail Resorts starts construction on Peak 6 expansion at Breckenridge
The Peak 6 project will include 400 acres of lift-served skiing and 143 acres of hike-to terrain. The company expects to open the new terrain for the 2013-14 ski season, including adding a new high-speed, six-person chairlift and a new fixed-grip chairlift to access the Peak 6 area.
“This is one of the most notable ski area enhancements in the past decade,” said Rob Katz, chairman and CEO of Vail Resorts. “The new expanded terrain will feature high-alpine, intermediate bowl skiing – a rare find among our eight world-class resorts and in North America. This is an exciting season on the horizon for Breck and our company.”
With Peak 6, Breckenridge will now have five huge peaks, 2,901 acres, four terrain parks, a 22-foot superpipe, 11 bowls, the highest chairlift in North America and plenty of family-friendly intermediate terrain.
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. Visit www.breckenridge.com for the latest on the Peak 6 project.
Peak 6, located within Breckenridge Resort’s special use permit boundary, is the first ski terrain expansion on National Forest System land in Colorado since 2008 and the first at Breckenridge since the Peak 7 expansion in 2002.
