As seen in the summit daily:

Apparently Vail Resorts some how acquired some of the Breck Nordic Center's permit area by doing a simple transfer of rights from the nordic center to the ski area. According to the article it's between 200 - 300 acres.

The terrain is pretty mild - more the same Peak 7 stuff they opened a few years ago. The new terrain will be accessed by that Peak 7 area.

This really doesn't mean much in the short term. The article states a master plan will be developed. If things go as usual, expect little or no opposition from the board of commissioners. They all live in Breck and have business interests there. It's in their favor for the ski area to develop more.

The big question is, will Vail do anything with it? All ski areas have more permit terrain than their ski area boundary. If Copper opened all theirs they'd be bigger than Vail. I suspect Vail will actually move quickly on this and that a new base area will be under development within 5 years. It'll probably coincide with the slated Hwy 9 expansion.

So, is it good or bad? I don't think you'll see any opposition by anyone except environmentalists. The locals only care about good terrain.

Have you purchased your Peak 7 real estate investment yet?
