Jerry and Rita Sheldon: Support for Peak 6

Jerry and Rita Sheldon
Miami and Breckenridge

We are part-time residents of Breckenridge spending about 30 percent of our time here. Two of our sons and two of our grandchildren live in Denver and use our place here for skiing almost every weekend in the winter. While here in the summer, we enjoy hiking almost every day. Breckenridge has done a wonderful job of preserving natural areas like Cucumber Gulch, where wildlife seems to thrive. However, we are somewhat bewildered by all the opposition to the Breckenridge Ski Resort’s plans to alleviate overcrowding by expanding to Peak 6.

Breckenridge is a ski town and the economy and quality of life depends almost entirely on the success on the ski area. Everyone we know here is aware of the overcrowding on Peak 8 and the need for some improvements. We support the additional ski lift and new ski terrain on Peak 6.
