With over 2,908 acres of skiable terrain, Breckenridge has always offered some great skiing and snowboarding. That’s my opinion anyway, I understand people have their favorite spots, but this year Breck has opened even more terrain by making Peak 6 accessible.
I had the chance to ride Breck last week. Peak 6 is amazing, opening up some very diverse terrain and making the trip out worth it in every way. The fresh snow that fell each night was not so bad either! Peak 6 features 543 additional acres, a 23% increase in Brecks skiable acreage with 3 new bowls, 2 of which are intermediate rated terrain round out the new addition. So 400 acres of lift served terrain and 143 acres of hike-to terrain makes for some pretty epic riding. Wide open un-groomed runs or some gnarly glade runs for both intermediate and advanced riders gives Breckenridge a whole new personality.
Personally, I have always loved riding Breckenridge and for me, the addition of Peak 6 just adds that much more flavor. If you have not visited Breckenridge in awhile I think it’s time for you to pack your gear and head out. I also hit up the Breckenridge Distillery while I was in town. I highly recommend a quick visit to this unique and friendly maker of the mighty whiskey. I toured the distillery and sampled some fine vodka and whiskey. The staff was awesome throughout the tour and even answered my layman questions when it comes to making whiskey. So grab the gear and head out for some great riding (or skiing I guess) on Peak 6 and then stop in to check out the Breckenridge Distillery for some good times.
