Peak 6 is open for the season [video]

Breck skiers and riders will no longer have to wait to shred our newest peak, because the Kensho SuperChair on Peak 6 is open for the 15-16 season!

Peak 6 opened to the public for the first time on Dec. 25, 2013, as Breck’s largest terrain expansion since the opening of Peak 7 in 2002. Offering skiers and snowboarders an additional 543 acres of lift accessed terrain at an elevation of 12,300 feet via Zendo Chair and Kensho SuperChair, the expansion into Peak 6 is one of the largest in North America in the last decade.

One of the most exciting and unique aspects of Peak 6 is the variance of the terrain. Due to its lower slope angle, Peak 6’s bread-and-butter run, Bliss, offers intermediate skiers a chance to get above tree line, and experience the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains without any hair-raising moments. That being said, if you’re looking for those moments then look no further, the chute and cliff terrain on Peak 6 is renowned for offering big mountains lines, with just a 10 minute hike. This terrain is not currently open but we’ll keep you informed via @BreckConditions on Twitter when it does.

Whether your looking for beautiful, challenging blue groomers, or want to rip some fresh snow, you’ll find it all on Peak 6 today, even if every aspect of the peak has yet to open. Since of course you’ll be out there all day, be sure to grab an invigorating bite at the Snow Drifter snack shack, open right next to the horizon base hut.

With snow on the rise, plenty of terrain will open as soon as patrol give it the a-ok. Check back to the Breck blog frequently for the latest and greatest.
