The answer to one of summer's biggest questions has finally been answered. For months, we've been listening to rumors and speculation about what will become of the 2020-2021 ski season. With last season being cut short, many of us are dreaming of the day we can be back on the mountain to immerse ourselves in winter in the best possible way- on our skis or board with family, friends, or even solo. On Aug 27, Vail Resorts announced Breckenridge Ski Resort will open for skiing and riding on Nov 13, 2020 to passholders only and by reservation. Keystone Resort opens a bit earlier for passholders on Nov 6. Skiers without season passes will be able to ski starting Dec 7 by reservation only.

On March 30, 2020, the 18 partners of Breckenridge Associates Real Estate were extremely proud to provide dinner for some of our local Summit County heroes at St Anthony’s Medical Center in Frisco, CO. Four nurses’ stations with approximately 10 people per station over 2 shifts were provided a meal; 80 meals in total! Much appreciation goes out to Kelly Brenholt at Ridge Street Kitchen in Breckenridge for putting our order together and assisting with the logistics of getting the meals prepared!  Kelly and her staff were able to provide a mix of sandwiches and salads with chips and cookies for both shifts. We also want to thank two of our partners, Jason Hart and Nathan Moorefield for making the morning delivery and another partner, James Shingles and our

Major Changes

One thing is certain, we’re not alone, we’re all in this global pandemic together. For Breckenridge, a resort community who depends tremendously on our visitors, we are definitely feeling the effects of Stay at Home orders.

Although Summit County had the very first positive case of Coronavirus in the entire state, there have not been any related deaths and our positive cases remain low. Being a world-class destination, the first few cases originated from international travelers from various corners of the world. Knowing we would have a spring break influx, local officials made the decision to be proactive and keep the spread to a minimum by closing the restaurants and non-essential businesses just days after Vail Resorts decided to

One reason that Breckenridge is such a great destination for the entire family is the multitude of activities designed to let everyone from tots and teens to grandparents enjoy the snow—doing something other than skiing and snowboarding.

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.

Summit County boasts not simply one but three, with each center offering unique winter activities for all ages and appetites for adventure.

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!

Ullr Fest 2020 has been canceled but will return in 2021. In the meantime, we can all continue to pray for snow! 

ULLR LIKES A GOOD PARTY AND THE LOCALS ABIDE!
