BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (KRDO) -- Breckenridge Ski Resort announced today that after 14 inches of snow fell over the weekend, the mountain will be open on November 9, 2022.

This is two days earlier than the resort initially planned.

“We are thrilled to kick off the winter season early this year thanks to cold temperatures and great progress on snowmaking at the resort,” said Jody Churich, vice president and chief operating officer at Breckenridge Ski Resort. “While Mother Nature has provided the temps, I want to give a huge shoutout to all of our resort employees for making this possible. We can’t wait to welcome back our Breck community to the mountain for the 2022-23 winter season. ” 

According to the resort, on opening day, skiers and riders will have access to approximately 54 acres of terrain on Peak 8, accessed by the Colorado SuperChair and 5-Chair. In addition, learning terrain and carpets will be available in the Rip’s Ride learning area. The Rip’s Ride chairlift is planned to open for the season and debut as a new high-speed quad on Friday, Nov. 11. 

This is the second resort to open on the Epic Pass.

Breckenridge says that they plan to operate into May as long as the weather allows.
