Breckenridge Ski Resort officials announced today they will extend the resort’s ski season one additional weekend, April 19-21, due to the large amounts of snow the resort has received over the last part of the season. Breckenridge has received over five feet of snow so far in April, including a foot since the official closing on Sunday. Additional snow is in the forecast this week.
“After skiing some amazing powder turns on Closing Day and more heavy snow in the forecast this week, we just don’t have the heart to shut down Breck’s lifts just yet,” said Pat Campbell, resort SVP & COO. “We can’t deny how great the conditions are, so this is a great opportunity for all of our guests to take advantage of a few extra days and enjoy more of the spring skiing and riding we all love here in Breck.”
Breckenridge will open 1,180 acres, lifts and terrain on Peak 8 only this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 19-21, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day. Park Lane and Trygve’s Terrain Parks will be open.
Lifts open will include:
- The BreckConnect Gondola
- Colorado SuperChair
- Rip’s Ride
- 6 Chair
- Imperial Express SuperChair
In addition, 2012-13 Vail Resorts season passes will be valid for this extended weekend. Breck will have a $50 lift ticket for those without passes for purchase at the ticket windows. Free parking will be available all three days this weekend in the gondola lots.
Additional services for Breck’s guests during the extension include special lesson prices, with half-day adult lessons starting at $59 and full-day children’s lessons for $99. Discount private lessons with a reservation will also be available.
Some restrictions to regular season promotions and discounts may apply.
