Breckenridge Ski Resort announced Wednesday morning it will remain open for two weekends of spring skiing and riding beyond the resort’s previously-scheduled closing day of this Monday, Memorial Day, May 27.
The resort will remain open daily through Memorial Day, and then will shift to a weekend schedule, offering skiing and riding on Saturdays and Sundays June 1-2 and June 8-9, weather and conditions permitting.
“It has been one of the best winter seasons I can remember during my more than 25-year career, and we are thrilled to keep it going for our guests and passholders,” said John Buhler, Breckenridge’s vice president and chief operating officer.
During the two additional weekends, lift-serviced skiing and riding operations will continue to be based out of the resort’s Peak 7, with access to primarily advanced- and expert-level terrain, via the Independence SuperChair.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the Vail Resorts property reported 9 inches of new snow overnight from Monday evening into Tuesday morning and 10 inches in the last 24 hours, for a base depth of 71 inches and 451 inches of total snowfall thus far this ski season.
On Tuesday, Breckenridge had most all of its terrain open on Peaks 6 and 7, including Peak 7’s bowls. Along with running the Zendo, Kensho and Independence SuperChairs on Peaks 6 and 7 on Tuesday, later on Breckenridge opened lift-serviced skiing within Peak 8’s Alpine terrain off of the T-Bar and Imperial Express SuperChair.
Skiers and riders at Breckenridge currently do not have access to the BreckConnect Gondola. As such, skiers and riders commuting to the mountain from downtown Breckenridge must take resort buses, which will continuously loop between Breck Station and Peak 7 throughout the day during operating hours.
Breckenridge is currently scheduled to open its Epic Discovery on-mountain, summer activities and operations on June 14.
