BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – Breckenridge Ski Resort has confirmed its spot on Santa’s ‘nice list’ by opening North America’s highest chairlift today.  Saturday morning’s Imperial Express SuperChair opening gives skiers more access to some of Breck’s amazing above-tree line terrain in the Imperial Bowl. Breck is now more than 50 percent open with 1561 skiable acres, just three weeks into the season.  Complete terrain and weather reports are available at www.breckenridge.com.

The Imperial Express SuperChair tops out at 12,840 feet after a quick 2.7 minute ride to the top of the Imperial Bowl. The famous chairlift offers easy access to three high-alpine bowls and hike-to access to the famed Lake Chutes and Snow White areas of Peak 8, when open.
