The mountain air is crisp and the leaves are changing!

The French Gulch trails and mountainsides have been gorgeous with leaves of vibrant gold, orange and red. We got a dusting of snow yesterday on the ski area and today we’re back to a brilliant blue sky.

If you ever need some tips on hiking or biking trails in the area just let us know. We’d love to share our favorites with you!

Could skiing on Peak 7 really get any better? How can you improve on the glades, the rolling terrain, the wide-open runs, powder day steeps and the 6-person Independence Chair? This winter, in honor of Breckenridge Ski Resort’s 60th Birthday, the new FREEDOM SUPERCHAIR will be unveiled!

The new lift will open as soon as there’s enough early season snow and will provide skiers and riders easy access to Peak 6, 7 and 8 terrain. The new Freedom SuperChair is located on the north side of Peak 7 and will transport guests from just below the Lincoln Meadows and Monte Cristo trail merge to the top of the comfortable and welcoming Pioneer Crossing restaurant. I can’t wait to check it out!

A recap of the meeting and comments are attached.

 The unprecedented level of well-reasoned and impassioned engagement by the…

Breckenridge 1984

I was looking though an old photo album the other day and found this photo I took in 1984 when I first moved to Breckenridge from the Boreas Pass overlook.  Note the beaver pond to the right of Beaver Run, Four O'Clock Road looks like a forest road, the Village was not completed yet and only Peak 8 and 9 for skiing.  How times change...

There’s a new face to the annual Breckenridge Oktoberfest celebration in 2021 but the long standing tradition WILL be coming back to town! This year’s event will be held September 24-26 in the Riverwalk Center. There are two sessions per day (reservation required) and the $50 ticket price includes a half-liter stein, 2 drink tokens, 3-hour admission to the session plus live music and German-themed games like nail hitting and barrel racing!

Also returning this year are the Oktoberfest Hockey Tournament and the annual 5K trail run. Details are frequently being added…
