The Town of Breckenridge and Breckenridge Ski Resort announced mid-December a term sheet has been finalized which outlines details for a parking structure to be constructed on the South Gondola Lot in Breckenridge. The new parking structure is anticipated to break ground in spring of 2020 and is expected to create approximately 400 additional parking spaces, pending final Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) approval.

Supply is low, demand is high, and sales are happening quickly in Breckenridge and Summit County.

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.
