July 21st the Breck Epic Discovery Alpine Camp opened it’s doors to the public with the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony. Alpine Camp is a great way for visitors to learn about the environment that surrounds and also the town. In attendance at the unveiling were members from the White River National Forest, Nature Conservancy and the Lt. Governor of Colorado.
Others attending the ceremony were among the first to take in panoramic views of the mountain and Summit County from Alpine Camp’s brand new observation tower. “What makes Colorado such a great place to live is the sense of community and that’s what this really represents, and it couldn’t happen here without the community spirit that we have here at Breckenridge,” said Donna Lynne Lieutenant Governor of Colorado.
An important part of Epic Discovery is Breck’s “One Percent for the Forest” program. The Nature Conservancy will invest one percent of Breck’s donated summer lift ticket and activity revenue into forest restoration projects on national forest lands. “We cannot do it alone. There are 24 million acres of forest in the State of Colorado. Six million of them really need our help and so we cannot do it unless an organization such as Vail Resorts and Breckenridge invite us to work together,” said Carlos Fernandez, Colorado State Director of The Nature Conservancy.
Be one of the first to enjoy the views and new activities from Alpine Camp this summer. Epic Discovery will be open daily for summer operations until September 4th, then open Friday through Sunday, September 8th-10th for the final weekend.
