Is the work-from-home phenomena here to stay? Whether your home office is temporary, evolving to flex or permanently remote, you need a space that fosters successful job performance. Rather than a physical transport to the office, the home office requires a mindset shift from sanctuary to productivity.

Where to put the home office? An extra living area, spare bedroom or loft are obvious choices, but if square footage is limited, put any extra space to work- a closet, nook, laundry room, or maybe just one wall. Take advantage of allotted wall space with a hanging organizer, sconce lighting, work boards or floating shelves. If space allows, check with your tax professional to find out about possible tax deductions for rooms that are solely dedicated to

There aren’t many things on this earth that bring out our inner child the way a snowfall does. It can be a truly magical experience. When we say “snowflake,” we are actually referring to a “snow crystal”.  A snow crystal is a singular crystal of ice. Snowflake is the more general term that is technically an individual snow crystal, but it can also define almost anything that falls from winter clouds. A snow crystal is born when a speck of dust or pollen is caught by water vapor high in the atmosphere. The speck freezes into a tiny crystal of ice formed by water molecules in a precise hexagonal prism. They are heavier than the surrounding air and begin falling.

As a newly-born snow crystal tumbles from the sky, it embarks upon its journey from the

When is the last time you sat on a sled or saucer and pointed yourself down a snowy decline? If it’s been more than a year, than that is way too long! Sledding is the ultimate, timeless winter activity. Age doesn’t matter because laughter and the great outdoors are good for everyone. So grab a sled, tube, saucer or anything that will slide on snow and head to one of the free hills in Breckenridge. 

The Carter Park sledding hill is at the south end of High Street in downtown Breckenridge and was the first official town sledding hill. The Carter Park Hill was originally a one-run ski hill with a tow rope installed in 1976 to get skiers up the hill and was a great place for locals to learn to ski. In 1986, the tow rope was stolen and the hill did not open

With approximately 10 months of construction remaining, the new parking structure currently doesn’t look like much. The final plan features include heated sidewalks, a plaza with restrooms, elevators, availability signate, electric car charging stations, and pedestrian improvements along the eastern side bordering the Blue River. The architectural design is influenced by Breckenridge’s mining history and will include wood siding, stone accents and native landscaping. The idea of drawing visitors toward Main Street restaurants and shops after a day on the mountain also played a big role in the functional design aspects.

Artist renderings of site plans and construction timeline can be seen on the Town of Breckenridge website.

You might think there is no place for you on skis or a snowboard outside of the groomed and monitored trails of the ski resort. If the term “backcountry” brings to mind visions of triple diamond terrain and the danger of avalanches, you may have decided to leave all things winter backcountry to the hardcore adventure extremists.  While those concepts do apply in many backcountry situations, there are in fact places for those who want a “green run” type of backcountry experience. Something mellow for days when you want skis underfoot, but more peace and solitude than will be found wherever there are lift lines. Read on for the 101 on alpine touring.

For the skier who does not want to go full send above tree line or ­venture into avalanche danger zones,
