BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - Breckenridge voters have approved Colorado’s first local tax on ski lift tickets.

The city asked voters to approve a 4.5 percent sales tax on single-day and multiday Breckenridge Ski Resort tickets.

The Summit Daily reports (https://bit.ly/1KWKW9Y) voters easily approved the tax. It’s expected to generate $3.5 million a year for transit and parking improvements in the resort town.

The tax will be collected by Vail Resorts, which operates the Breckenridge resort. Vail Resorts originally opposed the tax but relented when season passes, multi-resort lift-tickets and summer activities were excluded.
