One. The Breckenridge Distillery opens a new restaurant with Top Chef alum Daniel O’Brien, described as “quirky and hugely creative.” He will focus on paring menus and cooking over a whiskey barrel wood fueled fire.

Since this is Daniel’s first time living in a ski town, we asked him what he was looking forward to as a first time local who hasn’t stepped on his skis in 10 years. “I’m opening a new restaurant- I’m in at 7:30-8am and I leave at 2am. Hopefully I’ll get to ski some, and maybe take my wife ice skating.”

While resourcing ingredients at 10,000 feet is certainly a challenge, Daniel is feeling up to the task and is researching and establishing relationships with regional suppliers. He recently found a Vail based cheese maker and looks…

Want to experience the winter in Summit and Park Counties like a local? Here are some tips to get your on your way. Nature is the star, the reason so many of us moved here in the first place. And then when you add a layer of snowy frosting to the mountains the recreation opportunities just multiply. Health and vitality are the name of the game for so many high country residents and enthusiasts. For many, perhaps most, the root motivator is not the health or strength itself as a simple vanity play, but a way to maximize the enjoyment of all the opportunities to be out playing in nature. Is there a better way to stay motivated?

The sister sport to all that summer mountain and road biking? Cross country skiing, also known as Nordic skiing. It’s a…

The Fed met in September and held bank’s key interest rate, pushing speculation of a probable December rate hike higher. Since the mortgage market often moves in anticipation of a Fed rate hike, a correction after a meeting without a rate hike is not uncommon. So right now we are in the sweet spot of low interest rates in response to the September meeting, but before anticipation of the expected December rate hike.

What does that mean for you- the real estate Buyer or Seller? We may see more interest in the market as we march towards what could be the end of record low mortgage rates.

It’s good to be looking in Summit and Park County now, as our summer high season is waning and sales activity have peaked. You can take a breath, look around, see the…
