BreckConnect. That's the winning name submitted for the new eight-person gondola that will connect the town of Breckenridge with the ski resort's Peaks 7 and 8. The resort sponsored a naming contest for the gondola and received more than 250 entries.
The BreckConnect will start at the Breckenridge Transportation Center, in the parking lot right off Main Street, and have terminals at both Peak 7 and Peak 8. It will also have a mid-station at Shock Hill.
