Breckenridge closes out season with big air jam, Hawaiian luau at Peak 8 base
It’s been one heck of a season at Breckenridge, Colorado. The Summit County resort bagged 439 inches of snowfall, the 2013 Dew Tour was a highlight as always, the inaugural year of Peak 6 opened up some of the best terrain in the area and much more. This weekend marks the last two days of the season at Breck and the resort is saying goodbye to the 2014/15 season with a bang. On Saturday, a big air jam session will take place from 2 to 3 p.m., followed by an autograph session with the Epic Pro Team athletes including Keri Herman and Bobby Brown. Then on Sunday, a Hawaiian luau will take place from noon until 4:30 p.m., “so you know, if you want to, go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt…”
