Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Breckenridge Ski Resort said goodbye to skiing on Peaks 9 and 10 for the season on Sunday, April 20, but due to the above-average snowfall and continued deep snowpack, skiers can enjoy an additional seven days of spring skiing and riding, as the resort has extended its season through Sunday, April 27. In previous years, only terrain on Peak 8 was open during extended seasons. This year, Breck will continue to offer three of its peaks during the extended week, with Rip’s Ride, 5 Chair, Colorado SuperChair, T-bar, Imperial SuperChair, Independence SuperChair, Zendo Chair and Kensho SuperChair all slated for operation on Peaks 6, 7 and 8. Lifts will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Learn more about the extended season at www.breckenridge.com.
