BRECKENRIDGE — A site visit to Peak 6, where Breckenridge Ski Resort wants to develop new lift-served skiing on several hundred acres, has been rescheduled for April 22. Forest Service rangers will lead a public tour of the area for both skiers and non-skiers.

The visit was originally set for April 8 but was canceled because of the potential for a federal government shutdown.

Contact snow ranger Shelly Grail for details and logistics. She can be reached at (970) 262-3484, or send her an e-mail at

Grail said the main purpose of the site visit is to let people know about some of the changes to the proposal since it was first released, including a relocation of the bottom terminal and the elimination of a road from the existing Independence Chair on Peak 7 to the new Peak 6 terrain pod. Grail said the Forest Service hopes to spend about an hour at the site and make it up to treeline to look at some of the timber in the proposed expansion area.
