Submitted by alison on Sun, 08/18/2013 - 4:20pmBreckenridge Ski Resort is working hard to get Peak 6 ready for the 2013-14 season. The expansion will add 543 acres of skiing and snowboarding, with 400 acres serviced by lift and the remaining area considered "hike-to" terrain.
Peak 6 will provide intermediate level terrain in a high alpine bowl environment plus 10 new trails all just north of existing Peak 7. The expansion will increase Breck's total ski terrain by 23%, bring the total size to 2,901 acres. This new peak will be accessed by quad chair and a high-speed, six person chair.
While Peak 6's official opening day will depend on snowfall, it will be opening during the 2013-14 winter season, so wax up those skis and get ready for winter!
