BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – Nov. 24, 2015 – With near perfect conditions and snow in the forecast, skiers and riders have a lot to be thankful for this week at Breckenridge Ski Resort. Two additional lifts will open on Peak 9 in time for Thanksgiving skiing and riding; the Beaver Run SuperChair on Wednesday morning and the Mercury SuperChair on Thursday.
 
Breck will open additional terrain this week as well, including Peak 9’s Bonanza and Cashier runs tomorrow. With 59 inches of snowfall-to-date this season(15 inches of snow in the past seven days), and more snow moving into the area Wednesday night, guests can look for additional terrain openings this week and all season long on Facebook or visit Breckenridge.com.

The Overlook Restaurant Opens for the Season
If that’s not enough to be thankful for, Breck also has turkey, of course! The recently renovated Overlook Restaurant on Peak 9 opens for its second season and will once again feature turkey pot pie – just in time for Thanksgiving. For those who don’t want to compromise their appetites, the house specialty is available all season exclusively Breck’s most scenic dining location.
 
Breckenridge Ski Resort requires all skiers and riders to observe all posted signs and warnings. Closed trails may contain hazards due to limited natural snow coverage and snowmaking operations. Please keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
