USFS releases summer expansion on Breckneridge mountains

After years of debate, the U.S.Forest Service has released it’s policy on summer development.
Soon you’ll be able to travel a zip line at 12,000 feet that is (at times) hundreds of feet off the ground and travels at 35-35 miles an hour. Your be able to hire a naturalist, by foot or jeep, and learn about the flora and fauna, and why the Indians burned down the trees on Peak 10, over 100 years ago. Of the 40,000 acres of White River National Forest, only 6% is under lease to ski areas. You’ll be seeing more mountain bike use, and more national and international mountain bike competitions.

Now if we could only find a way to make the perfect summers of Summit County longer. I guess climate change can help.

When you are coming to Breckenridge to get your all over body tan, we know we are past the point of no return. Face tans are a regular thing, but as the world is heating up, we are about perfect right now with a top temperature of 83 degrees. Two ski slopes are open 3 more to go in the next 12 weeks. Get your season pass while you can and I hope to see you at Slifer at 117 S Main street

The first peek at Peak 6 ski area, scheudled to open this winter

A lucky group of 14 that were taken up to see the work in progress in the new Peak 6 ski area. It will add 400 acres of lift served terrain, and nearly 150 acres of steep and deep you can hike to. Access will be through the last newest mountain, Peak 7, but the experiences will be breathtaking.
And Vail is adding nearly 20 million of activities onto the existing Peak 8 for SUMMER!
