February 1st, 2021
The ski resorts have been doing well managing COVID restrictions and still giving us a fun, safe experience this ski season. Here in Breckenridge, the ski resort is starting to get more consistent snow and preparing to head into spring break season in just a few weeks. Here’s the latest breakdown of what Breckenridge Ski Resort looks like as of the beginning of February.
31 / 34 lifts are open
A Chair, T-Bar, and Imperial Express SuperChair are not quite ready yet as of February 1st, 2021.
62% of skiable terrain is open. Breckenridge has 2,908 acres of terrain, so that means almost 1,803 acres are good to go right now.
125 / 199 trails are open
We are just as anxious as you are for the double blacks on Peak 6 to open and everything off of Imperial Express SuperChair, but with a good storm on it’s way we are hopeful these will be ready to go in the next week!
The Lowdown on Breckenridge Ski Resort Trails
Luckily there’s something for every skill level at Breckenridge Ski Resort right now.
Peak 6 recently opened up and though those double black diamonds aren’t quite ready yet, everything else is smooth sailing on the north end of the resort.
Peak 7 is a popular destination and is completely open. Be sure to get here early – Independence SuperChair is the only lift that services this intermediate terrain and get get busy by mid-morning.
Peak 8 has something for everyone right now, including some great food and beverage stops at the base of it. We’re only waiting on the upper section of Peak 8 to fire up!
Peak 9 is almost completely open except for the double blacks.
Peak 10 is along those same lines as well and a great spot for freshies in the morning.
What Else is Open in Breckenridge and at Breckenridge Ski Resort?
Due to COVID, things have been fluctuating with what is open and how many people are allowed in one space at a time. Currently, everyone is required to wear masks everywhere in the town and on the mountain. Reservations are required for visitors and pass holders get priority. If you purchase a lift ticket through the resort website, that counts as your reservation so you’ll be good to go. The mountain is still cashless, BUT restaurants are OPEN for in house dining.
According to the Town of Breckenridge’s website, restaurants are operating at “25 percent capacity or 50 people, whichever is fewer; on-premises sale, consumption and service of alcohol must stop by 9:30 p.m.; takeout alcohol sales must stop by 10:30 p.m.; dining parties limited to 10 people from no more than two households; patrons in different parties must be spaced a minimum of 6 feet apart.”
Retail spaces are open at a reduced capacity, but you can still indulge of plenty of outdoor activities such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and more. Overall, most things are still open but have less people, but that means less crowds! Though you won’t see events happening like normal years, Breckenridge is the perfect destination for a winter getaway in the Rockies. Has this been this best ski season so far because the resort is less crowded? Come find out for yourself! We will see you soon!
