Breck ski officials outline changes to master plan

BRECKENRIDGE – Breckenridge Ski Resort officials hope the town planning commission approves their Peaks 7 and 8 master plan development by March, which could pave the way for some infrastructure construction next summer.

Ski area officials met for the second time with the Breckenridge Planning Commission Tuesday night to discuss some of the changes they propose to make to the master plan of the base areas. Town officials said they want to discuss a variety of issues regarding the proposed plan, but since it is so large, that will take several months.

Development director Lisa Annaheim outlined changes resort officials made to the plan since the commission last saw it in October.

Designers have reduced commercial space at the two bases from 27,000 square feet to 15,000 square feet, reduced day-skier parking from the current 650 spots to 230, moved the Peak 8 gondola terminal closer to the ski lifts and changed the architectural design from a “mountain Victorian” to a mountain lodge feel.

Ski area officials – among them consultants, designers and administration officials – asked the commission for feedback regarding how well the proposed density fits on the site, if view corridors between buildings are enough to entice skiers to the slopes from the skier drop-off areas and for their thoughts on the new architectural designs.

Additionally, they discussed parking management and an updated traffic study.
