First Tracks offered to Breck lodging guests
Breckenridge Ski Resort now offers an exclusive opportunity for guests staying in official resort lodging properties. Titled "First Tracks", this program will allow guests staying at the official lodging properties at Breck to access the mountain one hour before it opens to the general public on select mornings mid-December through the end of March.
No special lodging package purchase is required, but participants must be guests of an official Breck lodging property (Mountain Thunder Lodge, One Ski Hill Place, Crystal Peak Lodge, The DoubleTree by Hilton Breckenridge, The Village Hotel and The Village at Breckenridge) at the times the weekly events occur, and must also hold a valid Breck lift ticket or season pass in order to participate.
ALL First Tracks participants need to be intermediate level skiers or above as the Mercury chair does not service green runs.
New for the 2014-15 season:
Depending on the date, there are 2 location start options for First Tracks. Both the Peak 8 and Peak 9 starts will lead to the Mercury SuperChair, which will run the entire hour for First Tracks guests. First Tracks will load one hour before the lifts open each Friday (8am on December 12, 7:30am every Friday after).
- Peak 8 Start – Meet at Colorado chair. The group will take the Colorado SuperChair up Peak 8, and then ski or ride down Frosty’s Freeway to E Chair and onto the Mercury SuperChair for the remainder of the hour.
- Peak 9 Start – Meet at Quicksilver chair at the base of Peak 9. The group will load Quicksilver and then lap Mercury for the remainder of the hour.
- Ticket Windows – We will have a ticket window open at the base area for guests who have not purchased or picked up their tickets yet. A valid lift ticket or season pass is required to participate in First Track Fridays.
- VIP Credentials – First Tracks Passes will be available at your property the day before your First Track Friday is scheduled. Passes will have specific dates printed on them, informing you of your specific date.
