BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – Feb. 16, 2015 – The snow is still coming down in Breckenridge as Presidents' Day has delivered more than seven inches of new snow in the past 24 hours with more in the forecast this week.  And while it is women who take center stage this week during Breck’s inaugural Women’s Ski Week, anyone can enjoy the fresh snow like a presidential pro – here are a few tips:
 
  • If you’re the Teddy Roosevelt type, plan on doing some roughriding off of Chair 6, the Imperial Express SuperChair or the T-Bar – these chairs only access expert terrain, but offer legendary fun on a powder day. 
  • Bring out your inner cowboy on runs like Bronc, Cimarron, Grits, and Mustang.  Catch the Falcon SuperChair, then cruise down some steep groomers or test your mettle on the ungroomed south side.  Either way, you can bet Ronald Reagan never enjoyed his ranching as much as you’ll enjoy your time on Peak 10.
  • Not quite ready for the tougher stuff?  Contemplate JFK’s commitment to space exploration as you soar up Peak 9 on the Mercury SuperChair.  From there, you’ll soak in dizzying views while you choose from six different intermediate runs and three advanced ones.
  • Peak 6 is another great option on a powder day, a new favorite with visitors and locals with both intermediate and advanced terrain.  Guests can even grab lunch in the spirit of the first capital of the United States, with a Philly cheesesteak sandwich from the Snowdrifter grab-n-go mobile food snowcat.
You don’t have to be Thomas Jefferson to know a good deal.  You may not get a bargain as good as the Louisiana Purchase, but you can save time with the Epic Day Pass by skipping the lift ticket line. Learn more at www.breckenridge.com/epicday.
