Sometimes it’s fun to escape the lift lines and crowds for the day, or to plan an outing that can include everyone, even vacationers not part of the downhill action. If that’s the case with your gang, consider exploring one of the area’s Nordic centers. Summit County boasts not simply one but three, with each center offering unique winter activities for all ages and appetites for adventure. If you haven’t yet looked into snow fun other than the ski area, you’re sure to find at least one activity that will surprise you

In Norse mythology, the god Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) is associated with skis and the bow, and is said to be the handsome son of goddess Sif and stepson of her husband, the brawny thunder god, Thor. An expert skater, skier and hunter, Ullr glides around the world covering the land with snow. For those of us who love winter in the mountains pray to him for fresh powder and abundantly white winters. To celebrate his wonderful gift to us, Breckenridge hosts an annual town-wide party; Ullr Fest!

Celebrating its 57th year, Ullr Fest takes place December 11 through 15, 2019. The Town of Breckenridge welcomes snow lovers of all ages to the party, and the streets fill with revelers, many adorned in horned Viking helmets.

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

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. Around here most people expect A-Basin or Loveland to earn the title of “First ski resort to open in North America,” because for seven of the past eight years A-Basin has opened first in the Front Range, tying once with Loveland back in 2015. This year, the
