UPDATE 10-21-2013: Breckenridge Ski Resort has posted a link to download a hi-res version of the new trail map, here:
From the breckenridge.com blog yesterday: “For the first time ever, Breck created a contest to crowd source the trail names for the much anticipated Peak 6 expansion. Fans of Breck from around the globe had the opportunity to submit their most creative name ideas that related to the theme of “Awaken Your Sixth Sense” via the resort’s Facebook page.”
With over 1800 entries, the community around Breckenridge Ski Resort is active and caring – the ski resort has chosen 75 winners, from whose entries they will choose most of the new trail names.
From “Euphoria” to “Intuition” and “Euphoria,” the chosen terms reflect the punny theme of the Peak 6 Expansion’s marketing and labeling conventions – the sixth sense.
Read more about the prizes for winners, and the announcement of the new trail map release on Breckenridge’s Facebook Page, in their blog post here.
The 2013-14 Breck trail map, featuring the entire new layout for Peak 6 as well as the rest of the resort, will be publicly released on Oct. 21 exclusively on the Breck Facebook page. Become a member of the online Breck Nation and like Breck at Facebook.com/Breckenridge in order to preview and download the all-new trail map before it is released to the general public.
