Resort Upgrades Planned for 2009-2010 Summit County Ski Areas

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, October 28th, 2009 at 12:09pm.

It's always exciting to hear what the resorts have in store for operations and improvements heading into a new season. Last week, the resort executives for Breckenridge, Loveland, Keystone, Copper and A-Basin officially kicked off the season, announcing to the public expected plans for each resort heading into the start of skiing in the high country.

Fortunately, we live in a resort area where the ski areas are continually re-investing in their product to keep it top-notch and the best it can be. This gives us confidence in our local community and creates momentum and a "snowball" effect for many local businesses going into a new ski season. In addition to the improvements listed below, the resorts have also seen unbelievable early season snow and a rise in season pass sales. All signs of good business ahead!

Resort Improvements:
Keystone - Purchased 5 new snowcats and parking lot improvements. Better grooming and added focus on intermediate and black runs.
A-Basin - Earliest opening on the books, October 7. Planned overhaul to front of Black Mountain Lodge for better flow and food service. A-Frame will have new menu and facelift.
Breckenridge - Skier drop off area will return to Peak 8. Relocation of Trygve's Pipe on Peak 8 to Country Boy on Peak 9. There will be a Chair 7 regrade for easier access.
Copper - Boost in pipe height from 18 to 22 feet and a new night club La Fee Verte (The Green Fairy) to open

As we continue to kick off the 2009-2010 season, we celebrate Keystone's and Copper's openings Nov. 6 followed by Breckenridge on Nov. 12. See you on the slopes!
