There is change in the air as Breckenridge Ski Resort heads into the 2006-2007 season. Building on last year's energy generated from the Imperial Express, North America's highest chairlift, the ski resort is moving toward a new era that will include new lifts and new terrain.
This season, the resort is building excitement off the hill as Breckenridge Ski Resort works with the Town of Breckenridge to build a new gondola, the BreckConnect, which will transform the way visitors access the town and mountain. Breckenridge's new gondola sets a new standard in the role of mass transit in growth and development. The gondola represents a unification of the community as the public and private entities work together to build an environmentally progressive resort transit system that also creates a streamlined link to transport large numbers of visitors between the town and the ski resort's Peaks 7 and 8.
As a leader in among world-class resorts, Breckenridge Ski Resort responded to the backcountry trend by installing the Imperial Express Superchair, North America's highest lift and Breckenridge's crown jewel. The new high-speed quad enabled advanced-intermediate and expert skiers and riders access to 400 acres of Breckenridge's famed existing in-bounds double-black diamond and extreme terrain previously only accessible by hiking approximately 45 minutes to the summit of Peak 8. The lift proved to be so popular with skiers and snowboarders seeking that adventure that the resort has doubled the capacity of the Imperial Express.
The success of the Imperial and its terrain, along with the continued growth in travelers looking for adventure, is prompting the ski resort to open new terrain that features chutes, cliffs and cornices as well as above-timberline, open terrain. Accessed by the Imperial Express, the new 150 acres of expert terrain is called SnowWhite and is located to the skier's right of Breck's famous Lake Chutes. With the addition of SnowWhite, skiers and snowboarders can find adventure across 550 acres of lift-served terrain that the resort has added in the last two years.
