Could skiing on Peak 7 really get any better? How can you improve on the glades, the rolling terrain, the wide-open runs, powder day steeps and the 6-person Independence Chair? This winter, in honor of Breckenridge Ski Resort’s 60th Birthday, the new FREEDOM SUPERCHAIR will be unveiled!

The new lift will open as soon as there’s enough early season snow and will provide skiers and riders easy access to Peak 6, 7 and 8 terrain. The new Freedom SuperChair is located on the north side of Peak 7 and will transport guests from just below the Lincoln Meadows and Monte Cristo trail merge to the top of the comfortable and welcoming Pioneer Crossing restaurant. I can’t wait to check it out!

A recap of the meeting and comments are attached.

 The unprecedented level of well-reasoned and impassioned engagement by the…

Breckenridge 1984

I was looking though an old photo album the other day and found this photo I took in 1984 when I first moved to Breckenridge from the Boreas Pass overlook.  Note the beaver pond to the right of Beaver Run, Four O'Clock Road looks like a forest road, the Village was not completed yet and only Peak 8 and 9 for skiing.  How times change...
