Holiday fireworks over Breckenrdge

Oh the holiday season! The rush to the new year can be a blur of presents and pressures and celebrations and caloric overloads. And then we land on the doorstep of a new year, exhausted, and looking squarely into the fresh face of all the potential a new year brings. And we make our resolutions, and hope we can keep them. In so many parts of the country, gyms reports an uptick of hopeful participants in the early weeks of a new year. 

What about a slight change up this year? Make resolutions before all the holiday pressure avalanches you. 

A Resolution to get Outside More?

ULLR is locally celebrated as the Nordic god of snow, but according to Norse mythology, he is the stepson of Thor and the god of snowshoes, hunting, the bow, and the shield. There are weeks in Breckenridge where one could be forgiven for assuming Ullr is the god of sharing adult beverages in the snowy outdoors while watching parades and burning things while wearing pelts and horned caps. For long time locals, Alden Spillman is the physical embodiment of the Norse god, and has dressed as Ullr for the annual UllrFest for as long as anyone remembers - certainly before his daughter, who is now a grown woman, was born. Alden, a photographer and historian, is said to have the best collection of early ski town photos. His imposing physical presence and authentic

With a roaring jobs report, and the economy growing in the third quarter at an annualized rate of 3.5%, wages up, an unemployment rate well below 4%, and amidst high consumer confidence levels, the Fed is almost sure to raise the interest rate to 2.5% at their December meeting. This will be the fourth interest rate boost this year, deployed as a measure against unsustainable growth.    As mortgage rates often move in anticipation of the Fed meeting and possible/probably rate boosts, it no surprise that the week of November 1-8, 2018 saw a jump in mortgage interest rates.  Freddy Mac pegs the average 30 year fixed rate mortgage at 4.94%- a seven year high. It’s notable that we are still below 5%, a number that seemed unattainable not that many years…

There is nothing like your first day of skiing for the season. Sure, the ski movie premiers are high energy affairs. First dusting of the peaks can get your heart racing as the lights, sights, smells and temperature all trigger our skier brains that the season is almost upon us. But first day brings the excitement up to a whole new level.

You awaken with that first day of school flutter in your stomach. Well -- even better than the school flutter. Choke down a super smoothie and oatmeal to keep you fueled for the day. Touch your toes a few times and give your quads a stretch -- you'll be spending a lot of time together for the next 8 months, so make nice now.

The vigorous powder day, the après ski activities, the delicious hot chili in the lodge, the Bernese Mountain dogs with snowflakes dusting their muzzles- these are all available in most ski towns- they are our universal ski culture touchstones. But each ski town has its own personality- the people and the events that define a community and a local culture. Early season in Breckenridge is defined by several beloved events; we kicked off with Breckenridge and Keystone both starting their lifts on November 9th. Copper adds to the fun on November 16th. A-Basin trounced everyone with an October 19th start.  Thanks Ullr for the early season snow!

Thanksgiving in the high country is somehow also an excuse to get out and exercise. Run, then ski, and then eat.

A friend from the Bay Area recently visited Colorado for the first time. He was, of course, taken by the natural beauty and the healthy lifestyle, but was breathless about the real estate. Why didn't anyone tell me real estate was so affordable in Colorado? My brothers house is 1000 square feet larger than mine and cost 30% of what I paid! His perception of our market came down to not just to home sale pricing, but our low taxes and lifestyle. This is of course, coming from one of the most expensive markets in the world, but is a great glimpse into the mindset of our out of state buyers.

The average sales price of a single family home in Breckenridge through the end of September, 2018 was $1,347,303.00 or $422.04 a square foot. The average sales price
