The Breckenridge Planning Commission is in a agreement to allow for an alpine coaster at the Breckenridge Ski Resort, according to a recent Summit Daily News article . The plan will now go in front of Town Council March 23 for their feedback or approval.

The ski resort's Alpine Slide is always a big hit with kids of all ages each summer. The mountain coaster is similar to an alpine slide but it's on a rail on raised tracks.

If approved, construction may start as early as this summer.
