DENVER (AP) - Zip lines, canopy tours, a ropes course and more are all part of a planned Breckenridge ski area expansion the U.S. Forest Service has approved.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1J3HZ6W ) that the Breckenridge plans, which have been in the works since 2013, are part of Vail Resorts’ $100 million, multi-year plan to develop summer recreation at all of the company’s major resorts.

The Breckenridge plan includes educational programs, two zip lines, two canopy tours, a ropes course, an observation tower, hiking and mountain biking trails and a climbing wall.

The Forest Service estimates the additional Breckenridge visitors will spend $2.1 million to $8.7 million, creating an economic impact of up to $12.3 million a year.
