Comments by Steve Hemphill/

Breckenridge, CO – November 16, 2010 – Thanks to accumulation of nearly two feet of snow at Breckenridge Ski Resort in the past two days, the ski area announced today the T-Bar lift on Peak 8 will open to the public tomorrow, November 17, 2011. According to Ski Patrol Director Kevin Ahern, this is the earliest opening for this lift in Breckenridge Ski Resort history. Skiers and riders will be able to access North Bowl out to Forget-Me-Not as well as the hike-to terrain already open.

Additional terrain opening to the public also includes Duke’s, with access back to the Colorado SuperChair.  However, there will be no access out from the bottom of the T-Bar (guests must ride the lift) until Friday, November 19th when Northstar and the Rocky Mountain SuperChair open to the public.
