The U.S. Forest Service approved 543 acres on Peak 6, on the north side of the resort. That part of the mountain will be accessed by two chair lifts. There will also be hiking access to some expert terrain.
Breckenridge has been trying to get approval for the project since 2007. The new terrain is expected to open for the 2013 - 2014 ski season.
