The Summit Association of Realtors was privileged to host the powerhouse breakfast meeting at The Lodge At Breckenridge this morning with the CEOs of the local ski areas, some of the top and most visited ski resorts in the world.  A common opinion topic of discussion among these leaders was the concern for employee housing and the plans of working closely with local towns, communities and counties to work on solutions for this in the future.  John Buhler, the CEO for Breckenridge, mentioned that Vail Resorts had slated $30 million as an initial step to investigate and initiate plans to help resolve this issue.Summit County Colorado Ski Area Bosses

Today kicks off the annual celebration of Ullr Fest in Breckenridge. Grab your Viking horns and start doing your Ullr dance! We need some fresh powder. Ullr Fest is celebrating its 53rd year with events that you will not want to miss. Tonight, the festivities begin with the Breck Ascent Series, the crowning of the Ullr King and Queen, and Breck's Got Talent. Tomorrow is the most bizarre parade you will ever witness! The Ullr parade is known for its quirkiness- with people underdressed for the frigid temperatures, doing back flips on skis off of a truck, and hot tubing down Main Street. And the family events continue on with the Ullr Bonfire, Ullr ice plunge, and Ullympics. Join in on the fun from January 13-16, 2016.
