Breckenridge continues to open up more terrain on the mountain. Yesterday Peak 9 opened which now gives skiers and riders more access to the mountain. Upper Park Lane also opened which includes a triple jump line and 10 rail features.
With sunny skies and mild temperatures, the weekends are already providing beautiful days on the slopes. Snow is in the forecast in the week ahead, which will be good to add moisture and more snowfall to the base are allowing for more terrain to continue to open.
Have you heard of the Leave No Buddy Behind pass? New for the 2019/20 season, redeem the Buddy and Ski-with-a-Friend-Tickets online, share with whoever in your family and friend group, then skip the ticket window and jump on the slopes. A Buddy Ticket saves up to 40% off lift ticket prices! It is a flat discounted ticket to be used to ski with family or friends. Essentially they are discounted single day tickets that can be purchased for friends or family. Buddy Tickets remain the same price all season long, however the earlier you buy your pass, the more Buddy Tickets you get.
