Can you imagine a 19.75 mi route (including lifts) around Breck while skiing ONLY 1 blue run while the rest is black and double Black Terrain. I was playing around with Google Earth this afternoon to find such a route. Of course this requires that a few of our trust fund town council members to pull their head out and approve the expansion to P6. After all this is a Ski and Ride Resort! Let’s make it the best it can be.
Here is the route:
Starting at the Village, you take the Quicksilver, then head to Peak 10 for a lap on the southside. Take Falcon Chair again and ski The Burn. Come down an then over the Mercury, down Tom’s Baby on the E-chair side of P9.
Then go to the mid-station of the P8 Interconnect, to Imperial Chair. Hike up to the Lake Chutes and ski back to 6-Chair.
Then to Imperial Chair again, this time head out to the Whale’s tail and cut across to P7 (Magic Carpet), back to the T-bar. Take a lap in Horseshoe and head to the base of Peak 7 (1st Blue Run).
From the base of 7, go up the Independence chair (1st base lift since your first chair). Drop into Ore Bucket and over to the proposed Peak 6 Lift. Ride to the top of P6, hike to your favorite drop and ski the 3/4mi wide bowl. Enjoy the powder, and then enjoy a long, yet enjoyable ski back to the base of Peak 7 to have lunch at Seven’s restaurant.
Currently there are many great route options, but I must say, this one would ROCK. Breckenridge has many diverse wind and weather patterns which would influence the actual route. But the best way to get around Breckenridge is to have an experienced guide and instructor.
