US Forest Service says ‘Yes’ to Breckenridge expansion

Breckenridge may be starting up 2012 with Peak 6 if all goes well.

 

Plans to develop a sixth peak at Breckenridge, Colorado, one of the country’s most popular ski resorts received a green light by the US Forest service to add 550 acres of terrain serviced by a new six-seater chair lift. Evaluations from public consultations are currently underway to measure the environmental impact and if all goes well, the multi-year effort to move the plan forward would come to life for the 2012 season.

Forest service approval was needed because the lands and mountain access is controlled by the government agency. The new terrain will feature a combination of twelve intermediate and advanced ski terrain along with groomed and ungroomed trails. Although the mountain will be serviced by a lift, some of the runs will require a hike up to the reach the summit. The proposal plans are available at www.breckenridgepeak6.com
