Breckenridge Ski Resort Seeks Approval For a Mountain Roller Coaster

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, March 17th, 2010 at 9:21pm.

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. Vail Resorts is proposing a 2,500 foot coaster on Peak 8 between two ski runs. There is a similar coaster in Colorado at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

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