Breck Peak 7

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I did not see a post on this so forgive me if it has been asked already.
Has anyone skied the new Peak 7 area?
Please describe if you have.
It looks like from the map there are a lot of glade areas near the top of the lift?
What would you compare it to as far as the rest of the mountain goes?

It's as boring and overcrowded as the rest of the place.

Well, actually it's ok. It's really not that large, seems like only a half dozen runs or so. It's slightly more gladed than other parts of the hill. It's serviced by the new Independence lift. Personally, I just can't get excited about skiing it.

The Peak 8 SuperConnect lift is a much better addition, IMHO.

The advantage of new terrain on Peak 7 is that there's less
crowds on Peak 9 and 10 and other areas like 6 chair aren't
as busy.

When you look at the long term strategy, Peak 7 is just the beginning. Vail Resorts plans to put in a new gondola on that side of the mountain, completely redevelop Peak 8, and begin real estate stuff on Peak 7. I can't exactly say I'm enamored with the idea.
