Tis the Season to be Thankful

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to give thanks! Take a step back and reflect on what really matters to you. Sometimes it’s so easy to take things for granted and it’s always important to put things in perspective. Think about it for a second…

What are you thankful for?

We asked our co-workers and below is a Word Cloud that we generated from all of their responses.

What are you thankful for world cloud

Here are a few quotes from our co-workers!

“I am thankful that I get to spend time this thanksgiving being with my best friends.  Even though our families are miles apart, nothing beats hanging out with the people that you know and love.”

“I am thankful for living here in Breckenridge and working with such wonderful people. I feel blessed to be healthy and active in the ski and snowboarding community.”

“That I have a good job, doing what I enjoy – for an outstanding company and with amazing co-workers!”

“I am thankful for the mountains that we live in and the lifestyle of summit county.”

“I am thankful for my health, well-being, and being privileged enough to live in this beautiful place we call home!”

“My family, husband, children and four beautiful grandchildren.”

“I feel so blessed living where I do and I LOVE every second of it! I feel so fortunate to live in this amazing place.”

“It has been such a privilege growing up in this community. I have been watching Breckenridge and its ski area change and evolve my entire life, and I am so thankful that not only do I live in one of the best ski towns in the world, but also that I work with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I have met so many wonderful people in this town and I am thankful to be a part of such a tight-knit community. Last but not least, I am thankful for healthy friends and family, and I am so grateful for everything I have right now.”

“I am thankful for being fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful community!”

“I am thankful to live and work in my favorite place on earth. I am thankful that I get to snowboard and mountain bike in my back yard. I am thankful for all of the passionate, genuine people who I have gotten to know in Breckenridge to share these experiences with. I am thankful for my family and the time we get to spend together.”

“I am thankful for every day that I wake up and get to have another day with my horse (who is 34), my dog (who is 13), and my grandma (who is currently having some health issues). I know that their time left with me is limited and I am thankful for every day and every moment.”

“This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for SO MUCH! But, the things I am MOST thankful for are: my health,  my family & home, my friends: near & far, new & old, my co-workers, my awesome job, the life I am able to live, snow, skiing, yoga, our Breckenridge community, the Rocky Mountains, and the ability to do awesome things with amazing people (rock climbing, concerts, hikes, white water anything, snow biking, festivals, town events).”

“I’m thankful to have a family away from my family – our company and the friendships I have made. Nothin’ beats personal connections and fostering valuable relationships.”

“Thankful for snow and mountains and family!”

Hunt for Eggs, Not Activities: A Guide to Easter in Breck


Easter in BreckenridgeEaster Weekend marks the onset of spring, which might make you think that ski season’s end is near. But, as we type this, one of the biggest blizzards of the season is thumping down on the Town of Breck, and we can’t wait to hop around in some POW. Celebrating Easter in Breckenridge might just be the most egg-cellent decision you make this year. The family can still enjoy traditions such as decorating eggs, eating delicious candy and filling bouquets with lilies while forming new customs like skiing under blue bird skies, slopeside egg hunting and joining in Breck’s
Spring Fever festival.

FRIDAY, MARCH 25TH

  • Ski with a Ranger at Breckenridge: Treat yourself and/or your family to an hour long lesson from a Volunteer Ranger on Peak 7 at the top of the Independence SuperChair at 11am. All you need is your lift ticket and intermediate skiing abilities. The US Forest Service, Friends of Dillon Ranger District and Breckenridge Ski Resort put this on free of charge!
  • Cupcakes & Canvases: At the River Run Village in Keystone, an après party featuring an hour of cupcakes, canvases, art supplies and creative coaching will result in a happy family from 5pm to 6pm.
  • Live Music at The Motherloaded Tavern: Thump your foot to the hippity hoppity beats of John Woodall and the Hollywood Farmers at MLT in Breckenridge. The festivities start at 5pm and run until 8pm. We recommend ordering some magic bacon and tots while you jam.

SATURDAY, MARCH 26TH

  • Free Watercolor Fiesta: Local artists are offering free workshops in the Breckenridge Arts District from 4pm – 7pm, featuring tutorials on creating mini-watercolor paintings. For more details on this cultural workshop that is fun for the whole family, email Mauricio.

The lift loads at 6am and service runs at Ten Mile Station from 6:30am to 7:15am.
  • On Mountain Kids’ Easter Egg Hunt: Taking place on both Peak 8 and Peak 9 at 9:30am, children ages 10 and younger get their shot at finding as many hidden eggs as they can. For the even littler ones, at 10am kiddos ages 3 and under can also hunt for the Easter Bunny’s hidden eggs in a fenced in area near Chair 5. Don’t forget to find the Easter Bunny and take pictures with him!

Feeling egg-cited? You should be! Duck out of your usual Easter routine; hunt down your peeps, find some pastel baskets and come find your sweet spot in Breck. The best lodging deals in town can be found at Breckenridge Discount Lodging. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Breckenridge for a hoppy Easter holiday!

Breckenridge Valentine’s Day Ideas

12781834832021651265gif_heart_44_512x512x32 copyValentine’s Day is this Sunday and Breckenridge is the perfect place to snuggle into with your significant other. If you are like so many of us you might be saying to yourself, “Valentine’s Day? This weekend?” Why not surprise your main squeeze with a romantic getaway to Breckenridge? Here are some ideas to do Valentine’s Day in Breckenridge right.

Private Sleigh Ride: Its winter and that means it’s the perfect time to get close under blankets! How about a private sleigh ride in the heart of the Rocky Mountains? Breckenridge Sleigh Rides offers scenic rides with great views of the Ten Mile Range and the Continental Divide. If you are willing to drive a few miles down the road to Frisco, Two Below Zero offers private sleigh rides with some pretty amazing views around Lake Dillon as well.

Cross country ski or snowshoe with a picnic: If you are looking to be a little more active, then try renting cross country skis or snowshoes at the Breckenridge Nordic Center or the Gold Run Nordic Center. Both offer rentals and lessons. Before you go, stop at some of the many shops in town and pick up some cheese, wine and other delicacies for a little picnic while you are out on the trails.

Snow cat skiing: if you really want to up your game how about a seriously heavy duty powder experience consider making the trip over to Keystone. Your Breckenridge Pass is good at Keystone and you can sign up for a Snow Cat adventure. Keystone Snow Cats offer access to unparalleled powder skiing that is nearly inaccessible to most.

Flowers, wine, chocolate and jewelry: We can’t forget about the “Four Horseman of Valentine’s Day!” These are the staples of any successful Valentine’s Day! For flowers call Bloom, Petal & Bean or just swing by City Market and make your own arrangement. Add a trip to Ridge Street Wine (actually on Main Street) to pick up wine and chocolate. Take a walk down Main Street and surprise you special someone with a unique piece of Jewelry from a Breckenridge jewelry store.

Cap it off with dinner: Embrace the time honored tradition of the Valentine’s Day dinner! Breckenridge offers a fine selection of nice restaurants for all budgets. Many restaurants will be offering Valentine’s Day deals so make sure you grab a Summit Daily (free local newspaper) from one of the blue boxes all over town. There is the best source for restaurant deals. You can check a really extensive selection of local restaurants with the Breckenridge Dining Guide.
