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.

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.
