Peak 6

Jay and I love peak 6. Peak 6 is Breckenridge's newest peak and it has some extremely fun and steep terrain. 

Over on peak 6 we can cliff jump, hike, ski steep bowls and usually the powder is great! They never groom over there so all the snow is natural! 

Peak 6 is easy to get to as well and it is easy to get back from peak 6. There are several ways back to peak 8 and peak 9 if those peaks are your final destination for the day.

If you are intermediate or beginner then Peak 6 is not your peak. Leave the peak for experts only. Skiers tend to go fast and jump and ski aggressive over there so if you are more cautious then it is not the best part of the mountain for you. 

Beginner skiers should stick to peak 9 or off Rips Ride on peak 8. Intermediate should be around peak 9 and some runs off peak 8.  Peak 6 is not an intermediate or beginner peak! 

Whatever your level or experience I hope you go out, enjoy the slopes and have fun! Skiing is for all to enjoy!
