- Represents 23% increase in resort’s skiable acres
- New terrain at Peak 6 expected for 2013/2014 ski season
“Peak 6 will be a tremendous addition to Breckenridge, significantly improving the guest experience by adding both new terrain and lift capacity,” said Rob Katz, chairman and CEO of Vail Resorts. “In addition, the new terrain provides access to intermediate runs and high alpine bowl skiing that will be enjoyed by a wide variety of our guests.”
The approval came in the form of a Record of Decision by the US Forest Service after completing a Final Environmental Impact Statement, a process which began with project scoping in 2007. The decision remains subject to appeal for 45 days.
Peak 6 is the first ski terrain expansion on U.S. Forest Service land in Colorado since 2008 and the first at Breckenridge since the Peak 7 expansion in 2002.
