Buying Real Estate in Breckenridge has seen more advantages lately. August 15, 2012 the decision was passed to forever change the landscape of the Breckenridge Ski Resort. The white River National Forrest Supervisor, Scott Fitzwilliams signed the record of decision (ROD) to allow the Breckenridge Ski Resort to expand by 550 acres.
On the new 550 acres of skiing there will be two new chairlifts, a new ski patrol warming hut and a restroom facility. A major component to this expansion was the environmental impact that it could possibly make. In 2002 there was a ‘Forest plan’ to introduce more Canadian lynx to the area. All of the additions had to be cleared with Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) making sure it would not affect the lynx in their natural habitat.
Set to open in the 2013-14 season the expansion will make Breckenridge ski resort almost 3,000 acres. The views will be endless, the skiing will be epic, the crowds will not be bad and now you do not have to hike to access all of what Peak 6 has to offer. In order to get to the summit of Peak 6, you will still have to hike, but the process has just become easier.
Being one of the most visited ski resorts in the western hemisphere, this is the largest expansion of Real Estate in Breckenridge that Breckenridge and Vail resorts has ever done. The expansion will help spread out the skiers on the hill so not everything is as crowded. The 2014 ski season will prove to be one of the best in many years, letting people access some of the best skiing in the world.
