It has recently been announced that the Breckenridge Ski Area will be adding 550 additional acres on Peak 6 to ease overcrowding and offer more action-packed ski fun to its customer base. The effort will include the addition of two new lifts, a new restroom facility, and ski patrol/warming hut. All expansion efforts are expected drive more business to Breckenridge and better accommodate its regulars.
According to Rob Katz, Chairman and CEO of Vail Resorts, “The new terrain provides access to intermediate runs and high alpine bowl skiing and will be a tremendous addition to Breckenridge.”
The project will likely begin this fall and will commence in two years for the opening of the 2014-2015 ski season. For Aspen vacationers, this will provide additional opportunities for skiing adventures in the winter and hiking opportunities in the summer. Only 40 minutes from Aspen, the Breckenridge resort has grown in popularity over the years and is expected to inspire more visitors in the coming years.
The process for adding the additional acreage took a total of seven years due to the possible impacts it may make on surrounding natural life. Intensive measures were taken to best preserve the area and reduce environmental damage.
It is expected that the Breckenridge expansion will be welcome by Aspen locals and Aspen rental visitors. The 2012-2013 Breckenridge ski season will continue as normal and welcomes Aspen luxury rental vacationers for unlimited ski adventures.
Ski enthusiasts are also welcoming the Aspen Snowmass ski season in the coming months and have been reserving their Aspen VRBO rentals in advance. With more competitive ski resort pricing as result of the newly announced Epic Ski Pass, attendance is expected to increase throughout the region.
