Breckenridge extends ski season

11th March 2014, by Abi Butcher

The ski season in Breckenridge will be extended by an extra week, thanks to superb conditions going into the spring.

Breckenridge resort officials have announced that the ski season will be finish on Sunday, 27 April, instead of Monday 21 April as originally planned.

This is the third year in a row that the resort, often nicknamed “Breckenfridge” due to its cold and elevation, has extended the season. Previously, however, the resort has only opened terrain on Peak 8 at weekends. This year the resort will open Peaks 6 and 7 as well as Peak 8, thanks to “terrific” conditions and unusually deep snow pack.

The slopes at Breckenridge range from 2,925m to 3,915m and have received more than 28 feet (8.5m) of snow this season. In January the Colorado resort was the snowiest ski area in the US.

“It’s been such an amazing season for snowfall in Breck that even with a month and a half to go in the regular season, we are confident that we will be able to offer terrific conditions in the extended week,” said Pat Campbell of Breckenridge Ski Resort.

“This additional week will be a great way for us to thank our loyal pass holders, our locals, and our destination visitors, who now will have the option to book their spring vacations the week after Easter as well.”

Season passes will be valid during that week, and specially priced lift tickets of $66 (about £40) per day will be available for non-pass holders at ticket windows — nearly half the regular $110 (£66) daily ticket price.
