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!

Summit Realtors Association

The Summit REALTORS® Board of Directors thanks the community, clients, and members who stood up during the marathon of a hearing Tuesday evening (five and a half hours!) to discuss a significant series of changes to short-term rentals in the Town of Breckenridge. Due to our joint advocacy, we are pleased to say that one of the measures the real estate community needed to improve the proposal was included.  While the Mayor supported our ideas to address properties under contract or under construction, and the idea of tourism overlay districts, there was no effort by the Council to make any additional changes to the ordinance. 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...
