[VIDEO] 50th Season at the Breckenridge Ski Resort Starts Now - Opening Day

On Dec. 16th, 1951 the Breckenridge Ski Resort had it's first opening day.  And now, today is the ski area's 50th opening day.  There's some impressive stats that roll through this video, including how we have the highest chairlift in North America, and especially how Breckenridge was the first resort in Colorado to allow snowboarding in 1984.

I like how they say that "wishes will be granted" and "dreams will come true" as they most certainly will, and we hope that Breckenridge and Summit County are part of your daydreams.  If you're dreaming of a slopeside venue for your event, or want to have a Bachelorette weekend, contact us to learn how we can help save you time and money.  We're coming up some great packages, activity-filled getaways, and special promotions, so check back often to see what's fresh and new!

[GROOM-ER] The Ski and Tee. The Best of Both Worlds. Go Skiing and Golfing in the Same Day.

If you're looking for an epic Colorado adventure, look no further than hitting the slopes in the morning, and then playing a round of golf in the afternoon.  Grab your skis, your clubs, and maybe even a Red Bull ( or stop at the local coffee shop) to help fuel you through this unique Rocky Mountain experience.

When the air's cold enough, the resorts can make snow and open once they have a top-to-bottom patch ready.  So, in Summit County, that means that you can head up to the Arapahoe Ski and Snowboard Area.  Go ski or ride for a while to get your fix before heading down to swing the clubs for a few hours.  

Of course, there's not a whole lot of terrain open until the heavier snows arrive, but, c'mon it is October, and the fact that you can pull this off is pretty amazing.

Not too many other places in the world offer these two activities in the same day, and with renting skis, etc., it can take time and energy to organize.  Do you really want your buddy taking care of all that?  

That's where we come in.  Please comment below if you've pulled this off, or if you'd like us to arrange a guy's trip specific to your wants and needs.  I can even see hitting up the Dillon Dam Brewery for lunch and a local microbrew before heading to the course.

No matter the time of year when you want to come out to the mountains, we know which trails are dry, which slopes are open, and most importantly, where to find the info about which roads are open.  Ask us how we can help you save time and money with your wedding and group party planning for the Rockies.  Mention the Ski and Tee blog post and we'll throw in a gift certificate for a growler of a local microbrew.
