Breckenridge Announces Opening Day plans

Breckenridge Ski Resort announced the opening day plan for the upcoming winter season. Breckenridge is scheduled to open Friday, November 7, with terrain, lifts and services on Peak 8. The resort is preparing to offer top to bottom skiing and riding via the Colorado Superchair. The BreckConnect Gondola will be open to provide the only access from the skier parking lots in town to the base of Peak 8. There will be no parking on Peak 8 due to construction.
If you're planning to stay at a Peak 9 property in the first few weeks of the season, plan to walk or take the free shuttle over to the Gondola. With continued cold temps and a good storm cycle or two, Breckenridge hopes to have Peak 9 terrain open around Thanksgiving.

This pic was taken at the base of Peak 8 yesterday afternoon--amongst the snow balls falling from the sky is the gondola terminal in the foreground and behind that, you might be able to make out the retaining wall for the new property under construction now.

Keep thinking snow...it's working!
