$20M summer recreation upgrade planned for Breckenridge Ski Resort


— Vail Resorts announced that it has submitted a proposal to the U.S. Forest Service for its second Epic Discovery program in less than a year, this time with the goal of developing at Breckenridge Ski Resort.

The Ski Recreational Opportunities Enhancement Act, passed in October 2011, allows for yearlong recreational activities to take place on Forest Service ski areas. The first Epic Discovery proposal by Vail Resorts was launched in July 2012 for Vail Mountain. Breckenridge is next, pending approval by the Forest Service.

The concept, according to Blaise Carrig, president of Vail Resorts' Mountain Division, is to have “not just summer activities, but a full-blown summer program that goes a lot more beyond just having activities for people to do and hiking.”
