As the official ski season kicks off, Breckenridge becomes the choice destination for many snow lovers visiting Summit County. And it’s not unusual to see—after visitors fall in love with our wonderful town and vibrant community, our world-class ski area and myriad other winter activities—that they may spend a day or two exploring real estate opportunities. Sometimes the itch is for a ski condo, sometimes a welcoming home where family and friends can gather all year to enjoy our mountain paradise. And often these ‘maybe I really do want a place in Breck’ clients—no matter how often they’ve considered buying—hesitate. There are lots of reasons why, but often we hear, “Maybe prices will go down,” or “Maybe sellers will be more willing to negotiate next…
Bring on the snow Ullr and Happy Ski Season! Most of the Summit County ski resorts have their opening day right around the corner (or the lifts have already running). We are set for another epic ski season, with some amazing storms already leaving their mark. If you are considering spending more time in the high country this season, think about calling Breckenridge home this winter.

There has been skiing in Summit County since mid-October—boding well for a great 2019-2020 season! Each fall our local resorts engage in a friendly competition for “Opening Day Bragging Rights”. This year, Arapahoe (A-Basin) Basin and Keystone, reveling in an early-season snowstorm with ideal cold temperatures, were the places to watch as early-opening rumors flew with the snow. Only 90 days after closing the longest ski season in Colorado (on the Fourth of July!), A-Basin began snowmaking operations.
