Breckenridge Terrain Update: Peak 7, Imperial Express to Open This Weekend
  • Approx. 195 additional acres of skiable terrain to open for the weekend
  • Imperial Express SuperChair scheduled to open Sat., conditions permitting
  • Lighting of Breckenridge Festivities kick of the holiday season in town
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – Dec. 4, 2014 – Breckenridge Ski Resort is pleased to announce another round of terrain openings, just in time for the weekend. Peak 7 and the Independence SuperChair will reopen for the season on Friday, Dec. 5, with access to six trails on 75 acres, along with all base area services. Peak 7 – home to Sevens Restaurant tickets sales and equipment rentals at Breck Sports – is easily accessible via the BreckConnect Gondola from town. This opening will bring the resort’s total acreage to 1,500 so far this season. 
Breck officials have also announced the Imperial Express SuperChair, North America highest chairlift, will open on Saturday, Dec. 6, conditions permitting. Accessible terrain will include the Imperial Bowl and ridge, and the views at 12,840 feet should be endless.
“Having Peak 7 and the Imperial Express lift open for the weekend and getting skiers and snowboarders on some of our amazing above-tree line terrain will help with compaction when the next storm system arrives,” said Gary Shimanowitz, Breckenridge Vice President of Mountain Operations. “The Lighting of Breckenridge festivities this weekend mark the official start to the holiday season in Breck and the added terrain is the perfect complement to the festivities.”

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 for safety reasons.
The Lighting of Breckenridge
The first weekend in December, Breckenridge transforms into the sparkling holiday scene for which it’s famous.  Participate in the Race of the Santas, where hundreds of Santas race down Main Street to benefit Adopt an Angel and continue in the festivities with the Lighting of Breckenridge, where Santa greets holiday revelers from his horse-drawn carriage. Find the perfect gift and come experience the new Breckenridge Arts District as it hosts Handmade Holiday Market and winter open house. Stroll the campus with a warm cup of cider or cocoa, visit the decorated historic structures, and enjoy music and artist demonstrations at the various studios. Learn more at
