Breckenridge considering limit on skiers

Filed under: Daily News,Tourism | Tags:, ,

The Breckenridge Town Council is considering asking for a cap on daily skier visits to reduce the impact on the community on peak days.

The recommendation is among a list of requests to be sent to the Forest Service, which is considering allowing the Breckenridge Ski Resort to add about 550 acres of skiing on Peak 6 within its existing U.S. Forest Service permit.

A recent study of the proposal indicates a possible increase in the number of annual peak days for the town and the mountain, but also shows the expansion will likely pour millions of dollars into the local economy.
