Breckenridge Ski Resort has announced that this past Sunday the resort opened the Imperial Express SuperChair. The opening of North America's highest chairlift grants skiers access to Breckenridge's above tree line terrain in the Imperial Bowl, and means that all of the ski area’s lifts are now open for the season. 

The Imperial Express SuperChair tops out at 12,840 feet after a 2.7 minute ride to the top of the Imperial Bowl. The chairlift offers access to three high-alpine bowls and hike-to access to the renowned Lake Chutes and Snow White areas of Peak 8, once those areas open.

Breckenridge Ski Resort requires all skiers and riders to observe all posted signs and warnings. Closed trails may contain hazards due to limited natural snow coverage and snowmaking operations. Please keep off closed trails and out of closed areas for safety reasons.
