I had a great summer mountain biking, camping...and I still hope get in a ton of fall rides.

Although Summit County still has a lot of summer left it is time to start thinking about the 2009 - 2010 ski season. Breckenridge will open for the 2009 season on November 12, 2009 just 6 days behind Keystone's opening day. We all should be on snow in under 70 days! If you still need to buy your Season Passes check out this link for the best pricing Click Here.

I think we are in for an epic snow year.

Fall is in the air and its got me starting to think about the 15th annual Breckenridge Oktoberfest September 18-20. My bet is they will sell out of beer steins again this year! Hope to see everyone on Main Street. http://www.BreckenridgeAssociates.com
