Breckenridge Ski Resort opens more terrain, adds lift

Daily News staff report

BRECKENRIDGE – Breckenridge Ski Resort opens more terrain on Peak 9 today as well as the QuickSilver Super6 chairlift, thanks to accumulating snow and continued snowmaking.

A nearly weeklong winter storm has provided about a foot and a half of fresh snow while conditions have remained ideal for snowmaking, said Rick Sramek, vice president of mountain operations.

“Our snowmaking and trails crews, led by Brett Gray and Gary Mays, have put in a lot of work making it possible to add terrain so early after opening day,” Sramek said.

“As the weather cooperates, our crews will continue to prepare additional trails for opening as soon as possible.”

The QuickSilver lift will begin operation for the season at noon, serving an additional 25 acres of terrain on the Silverthorne trail. The Beaver Run SuperChair also is open.

The new trail addition creates 85 acres of skiing and riding with two chairlifts and one surface lift serving beginner and intermediate terrain.
