Keystone and Breckenridge Ski Resorts opening Friday

Posted: Updated:

Two of Summit County's largest ski resorts are opening on time later this week.

Breckenridge and Keystone both targeted Friday, November 10 for their opening dates, and due to cooperation from mother nature (and some help from man made snow,) the resorts will open on time.

The first lifts will begin running at 9 a.m. Friday, and there will be music and free cinnamon buns for skiers and boarders at Breck and free doughnut holes for those who go to to Keystone.

There will also be giveaways, raffles and prizes for skiers and snowboarders at Keystone.

Breckenridge will begin running its gondola at 8 a.m. to provide access to peak 8, where the Springmeier run will be open for skiers and snowboarders.

Keystone will be running its brand new Montezuma express lift, which was installed over the summer. It will provide access to the schoolmarm and silver spoon runs. 

All of those runs are rated for beginners.

Keystone's new Montezuma Express lift is described by the resort as a new high-speed, six-passenger chair that serves popular beginner and intermediate ski terrain. Breckenridge also installed a new high-speed, six passenger lift of its own, which provides access to Peak 10. Peak 10 is filled with runs designed for more advanced skiers and snowboarders.
