60+ Years of Innovation, Access and High Alpine

Since Dec. 16, 1961, Breck has been a pioneer in lift and terrain access for more than 60 years.

Investing in our Five Peaks

Since opening its slopes for the first time on Dec. 16, 1961, the resort has paved the way for innovation, access and high alpine adventure across its Five Peaks, from being on the forefront of new lift technology and installing the world’s first high-speed quad; to being the first major Colorado resort to welcome snowboarders in 1984; and to providing unrivaled access to signature high alpine with the introduction of the T-Bar, the Imperial Express, and the opening of Peak 6 in 2013. While the resort has grown and evolved over the decades with new lifts, new peaks, new experiences and beyond, guests can still find the same energy, sense of adventure and spirit of community that draws people in from near and far to Breck.

The New Freedom SuperChair on Peak 7

FY17_Blank_TrailMap-Freedom SuperCHair

It's not every year a ski resort gets a brand-new chairlift!

Ahead of the resort's 60th anniversary season in 2021, a brand-new chair created a classic pair on Peak 7 - Freedom and Independence. The Freedom SuperChair was built during the summer of 2021, and the new high-speed quad officially made its debut in December 2021. Running alongside the existing Independence SuperChair, the new Freedom SuperChair provides guests the opportunity to experience the wide-open and rolling terrain of Peak 7 in a whole new way, and carve their own path down and across Breck’s expansive peaks.

Located on the north side of Peak 7, the lift offers additional access to the popular peak and is a game-changer for the interconnected, peak-to-peak experience at the resort, connecting skiers and riders between Peaks 6, 7 and 8.

A Mountain of Capital Improvements

There’s always something new to experience in Breck. Whether it’s been a few years since your last visit, a year, or just a season, the resort and town are constantly evolving yet still manage to offer the same welcoming spirit and vibrant energy for locals and visitors year after year.

As we look forward to exciting future investments, we’d be remiss not to highlight past ones in our recent history that have helped paved the way to where we are today.
