BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — Nov. 21, 2008 — One of the most popular ski and snowboard resorts in North America, Breckenridge Resort, Colo., is unveiling a new base village area this winter that features luxurious ski-in, ski-out accommodations and skier services. Crystal Peak Lodge, now open, is the centerpiece of Breckenridge Ski Resort’s new Peak 7 base village, which will have full skier services up and running by the Thanksgiving holiday, including a ski and ride school product sales, a rental and retail shop, and lift ticket services.
