New options could address some resource concerns, agency says
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — The U.S. Forest Service has published a newsletter updating its process of reviewing a proposed expansion of lift-served terrain on Peak 6 at Breckenridge Ski Area. Changes to the proposal include a re-alignment of the Peak 6 chair to within the existing developed trail system to improve access to the proposed lift and proposed food service facilities and reduce natural resource impacts.
The agency has also developed another alternative that focuses lift and trail development within the existing resort footprint. A draft environmental study could be released as early as this fall, triggering a 45-day comment period.
