The Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival, also known as Still on the Hill, takes over the Riverwalk Center in downtown Breckenridge October 20-22, 2017.

Breckenridge is the proud home of the award winning Breckenridge Distillery, which opened in 2007 on the front side of the expanding craft spirits market. In fact, just 60 craft distillers existed in 2003, and today there are over 760. The thirst for the award-winning libations lead to a recent expansion and addition of a restaurant, making the new Breckenridge Distillery a real feather in the cap of the mountain town dining experience. Be sure to check them out in the new facility on Airport Road or pop by the Tasting Room for a quick nip on Main Street’s Blue River Plaza.

Consumer confidence is at a sixteen year high per the latest Consumer Confidence Index. “Consumer confidence increased in August following a moderate improvement in July,” said Lynn Franco, director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board in a statement. “Consumers’ more buoyant assessment of present-day conditions was the primary driver of the boost in confidence, with the Present Situation Index continuing to hover at a 16-year high.”

While strong consumer confidence numbers can signal increased willingness to borrow, which is a good indicator of a potential rise in real estate sales, it is important to remember some truths about buying, selling and holding your mountain home. Resort real estate tends to exist in a “snow globe” where demand

It comes as no surprise to most, as we reflect upon another summer real estate sales season, that the market up here was hot- and not just because at this altitude we are closer to the sun.

So what are the numbers to back up the armchair analysis that things really seemed to be moving?

While season pass pricing has pushed up past rock bottom pricing, season passes are a deal no matter how you slice it. With Epic Pass pricing starting at $419 for a four-day’er up to $859 for an unrestricted, unlimited Epic Pass with access to 15 resorts, it’s tough to go wrong. While Vail Resorts advertises the Epic Pass as up to 45% off lift ticket pricing, try this math on for size. Buy the Epic Local Pass for $639, ski just 150 days, and you’ll amortize that pass at UNDER FIVE BUCKS A DAY. We make no promises about how this may impact the rest of your life, but your quads, your goggle tan and your smile should all be cranked up to eleven.

Is this the year you catapult your skiing to the next level? Then this is the month to commit to the gym. Get

The Farmer’s Almanac calls for the winter of 2017/2018 to be warmer than normal with above average precipitation. Heck yeah! That’s a weather prediction we can get behind. Who doesn’t love sunny powder days?

In the slightly more scientific world of Labor and Employment statistics, The July Jobs report also held happy surprises- perhaps the economic version of a sunny powder day. Says Fortune Magazine, “Job growth was solid, but not strong enough to spook the Fed. Wage growth picked up, but not enough to threaten inflation. Discouraged workers began making their way back into the job market, indicating that despite an unemployment rate of just 4.3%, there’s still some slack to fuel future growth. An important milestone was passed: the Hamilton Project
