Breckenridge's Iconic Peak 6 Now Open
The gifts keep coming for those heading to Breckenridge Ski Resort this holiday season, with foot of new snow in the past 48 hours and another one of its five peaks now open! Breck’s Peak 6 opened this morning with more than 200 acres for skiing, including its signature run, Bliss – a high-alpine, intermediate bowl run. Breck now has four out of five peaks and 1805 acres of skiable terrain available for guests to enjoy. Visit Breckenridge.com for the latest terrain information, grooming reports and more.
Just last Christmas, Breckenridge Ski Resort opened Peak 6 for the first time, adding over 540 acres to its famous landscape via the Peak 6 area just north of Peak 7. Peak 6 includes 400 acres of lift-served terrain and 143 acres of hike-to terrain, representing a 23 percent increase in resort’s skiable acres and features high-alpine, intermediate bowl skiing – a rare find in North America. This is one of the most notable ski area expansions in the past decade and has already become a favorite among locals and guests from around the world.
Breckenridge Ski Resort requires all skiers and riders to observe all posted signs and warnings. Closed trails may contain hazards due to limited natural snow coverage and snowmaking operations. Please keep off closed trails and out of closed areas for safety reasons.
