Greetings from Gold Point Resort!

Are you familiar with the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Owner’s portal?  The online portal is home to most everything you need for your ownership – you can even reserve Bonus Time online now! This new and exciting feature can be accessed from www.bgvgrandcentral.com. The availability is in real time and is updated every 30 seconds. In addition, you can find information about renting your week, exchanging through Interval International, and even view specific details on your owner account such as your reward dollar balance. If you have any questions on how to use the BGV Owner Portal or the online Bonus Time tool, please feel free to contact the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Owner Relations department at (877).453.4440 or by email at customerservice@breckgv.com.

Around Gold Point Resort, we are pleased to be enjoying summer weather! The improvement in weather has allowed us to make great progress painting the building exteriors. We are also excited to complete the installation of a new RFID key system. This new system will allow for better access control and a more secure environment. On your next visit, we will no longer have a traditional metal key, but the familiar modern key card you are accustomed to seeing wherever you travel.

We encourage you to like our Facebook page for frequent updates on our projects. By the time the newsletter is published, painting and the key installation should be completed!

  • We have completed the installation of all new hallway carpet, completing the hallway facelift hallway that begun last year with fresh paint.
  • The Engineering staff has been completing grounds work, including the installation of a new weed barrier paper in much of the original rock work. This not only enhances the appearance of the property, but serves as a small fire barrier in the unlikely event of a wild fire.
  • The Housekeeping department has identified a new supplier for kitchen inventory items, allowing them to better source needed products at reduced prices.

Greetings from Gold Point Resort! Like much of the state of Colorado, May was filled with moisture. Unlike most of the state though, the high elevation at Gold Point Resort brought several days of measurable snowfall. On May 10th we had over a foot of fresh snow!

While the paved rec path system opened in late April, June begins to afford more options for hiking and mountain biking as the trails dry out. Located just beyond Gold Point Resort are the famous Sally Barber and Barney Ford trails. The Barney Ford trail climbs up from Carter Park and intersects with the Sally Barber trail just below Building 6. The Sally Barber trail continues the climb up and around Baldy Mountain. The trails are not for the faint of heart, but they offer a great challenge and other amazing scenic viewpoints just steps from Gold Point Resort.

For those looking to enjoy the peaceful serenity of Gold Point Resort, we are excited to announce that we have installed a new horseshoe pit and tetherball pole for the summer season. These new activities are located just south of the front desk nestled amongst the trees. For rainy afternoons all guests are welcome to join us in the guest lounge for a game of pool.

  • Exterior painting continues around the property. Gold Point Resort is receiving an entirely new color palette and looks fantastic! Progress has been hampered just a bit with the snowfall, but we look forward to completing this project by mid-June.
  • We have installed new hallway carpet in most of the buildings. We look forward to completing building 6 shortly.
  • On May 14th we completed our annual wildfire evacuation drill. Thank you to those of you who participated and let’s hope that we never need to put the plan into action.

Greetings from Gold Point Resort! Though we thought spring was upon us in April, we received a midmonth reminder that snow can come at any time! Fortunately, the snow fell before closing day this year and provided great conditions for the winter’s last hurrah.

Over the past couple years, you may have seen and even participated in the Dining Passport program, a great opportunity to test out all of Breckenridge’s best restaurants at a fraction of the price! For a $10 donation, you receive access to fantastic dining specials during the spring season. The specials include the famous 2 for 1 specials and a variety of other delicious deals.

Each year proceeds are distributed between a variety of local non-profits. This spring, the funds raised will be used to provide culinary scholarships to graduating seniors. Selfishly, we can all wish that these scholarships are given to talented students who will return to Breckenridge to delight our taste buds for years to come!

Around the property, we are excited to be midway through our biannual deep clean process. As always, this process includes a deep clean of the units and a more thorough maintenance inspection.

  • The restrooms in the common building have received a facelift. Our engineers had a grand time learning about the process of a bathroom remodel and they look fantastic.
  • New solar shades have been installed in the Guest Lounge. The new shades feature an easy operation and allow for better shots on the pool table without the impact of the sun glare.
  • The bathroom and blind improvements are just the first step in a greater overhaul of the front desk area. This project is being completed in several phases over the coming months, so come by and see the improvements each time you’re up!
  • Exterior painting around the property is in process! Please bear with us over the next several weeks as we work to protect and preserve the exterior of our property.
  • We’re excited to announce new queen mattresses in building 3, as well as new twin mattresses in buildings 1 and 2.
  • Buildings 1 through 6 are also in the process of receiving new hallway carpeting and look great.
  • Building 8 has had new sleeper sofas installed in the studios. The high quality mattresses should make for a comfortable sleeping experience as well.

gp_3.16Greetings from Gold Point Resort! We have enjoyed a stunningly beautiful end of winter and are beginning to looking forward to another spectacular Breckenridge summer.  Not to worry though – if you still need to get some turns in this season the Breckenridge lifts are still turning and Arapahoe Basin has yet to announce a closing day!

Breck is also closing this season with a bang! There will be free concerts at the base of Peak 8 each weekend through closing day.  Join us for Third Eye Blind, Eric Pasley, American Authors, and The Infamous Springdusters!  There’s nothing better than a day of skiing followed by live music.

Our spring weather can be an exciting surprise each morning, rewarding us with bright sunny days or feet of fresh snow.  So, join us now for powder filled mornings on the slopes or warm afternoons riding on the paved rec path throughout Breckenridge.

Lastly, we’d like to remind you that the annual Homeowners Association meeting will be at Gold Point Resort on Apr 25 at 1:00 p.m. We encourage and look forward to seeing you and kindly request that you RSVP, so we can ensure that we have adequate seating for everyone.

Property Updates:

  • We have changed our waste provider to Timberline. Timberline is a local company that understands our needs and is able to provide better service at a discount.
  • The housekeeping department is excited to have sourced additional pillows, allowing us to increase the number of pillows left on each bed!
  • During early March, the Gold Point Resort plow truck sustained some structural damage as the plow hit a block of ice beneath the snow. The truck was taken to Denver for repairs. The repairs took several weeks, but with the mild weather the repair shop was able to reinforce the structure to prevent future issues.

Around Town 3.5.2015

It was a beautiful day in Breckenridge. The morning started out chilly at a -10 degrees, but with the help of the sun Breck quickly warmed up (if you count 20 degrees as warm).

The weekend looks to be a warmer one with plenty going on. For a currently list of activity taking place make sure to check out the calendar of events here.
