Greetings from Gold Point Resort!

There is a chill in the air signifying the arrival of autumn. It may be a very short-lived season in Breckenridge, but it sure is beautiful. The bright yellow and orange leaves beautifully compliment the constantly shining sun. If you weren’t able to join us this year for the fall foliage we hope to see you next year!

The Breckenridge Grand Vacations Fall Fest is October 17 at the Riverwalk Center in downtown Breckenridge. This free family friendly event will feature face painting, caramel apple decorating and fall themed crafts. October 23 through 26, Still on the Hill Craft Spirits Festival comes to Breck. Admission includes a complimentary tasting glass, live music, craft spirit tasting, and distillery tours.

Here at Gold Point Resort, we’re thrilled to be enjoying a new front desk. As part of the upgraded front desk, the ice machine, vending machine and other noise making appliances have been moved into a room off the guest lounge reducing the amount of noise in the front desk area. Coupled with a slightly larger ADA compliant desk, you should find a more enjoyable check in experience.

  • The flooring throughout the common building was replaced.
  • New gas grills have been installed in Buildings 7 and 8. We look forward to new grills in the remaining buildings in 2016.
  • The Gold Point entry sign received a facelift by our engineering department and now features our new colors and enhanced visibility.
  • A photographer paid us a visit in late September to take some updated photographs of the building exterior. Look for these new photos to grace our website and Facebook page in the coming months!

Letter from the General Manager:

Greetings from Gold Point Resort!

After a grand summer season, filled with rafting, hiking, biking, sightseeing and more, on August 10 Mother Nature blessed us with a reminder that fall is just around the corner with snowfall at the Eisenhower tunnel. While the snow quickly disappeared, it is a reminder to enjoy the final days of summer and look forward to all that fall has to offer!

Oktoberfest returns to the streets of Breckenridge September 11 through 13. The September street party is where Munich meets the mountains, featuring more than three-dozen genuine German cuisine and brew vendors, a surplus of Bavarian lederhosen dancing and a weekend packed full of sunshine and fun for all ages. Prepare yourself for the famed historic Main Street to be flowing with Paulaner Bier, Oompah dancers, schnitzel and sausage while traditional polka music fills the fresh mountain air.

Fall is also one of the most beautiful times to be in Breckenridge. Starting in early September the aspen leaves begin to change, transforming the hillsides to magnificent shades of gold and red. The scenic foliage can be enjoyed on the many hiking trails, or by vehicle for a more leisurely tour. As many Gold Point Resort owners may already know, one of the most scenic drives to enjoy the leaves is the drive over Boreas Pass Road from Breckenridge to Como. Though the drive itself provides ample scenery, there are many opportunities to stretch your legs on various hikes just off the road. But our favorite place to take in the views is the chairlift swing sitting just in front of our very own Gold Point Resort Building 6.

Around Gold Point Resort, guests have been enjoying the new horseshoe and tetherball area, nestled in the woods just south of the Common Building which we rounded out the area with a table and chairs so the whole family can relax.

  • Human families are not the only families that have been visiting the area, as a mother bear and her two cubs have been seen in the area. While we can enjoy their majestic beauty from afar, remember that the mother bear is extremely protective of her young and should be treated with extreme caution.
  • Flowers have been planted in our revitalized entry flower garden. While we do not anticipate many beautiful blooms this fall, we are excited for the plants to be well established for next summer.
  • The engineering team has installed new building exhaust caps. These new caps are designed to keep a cold draft from flowing back into the dryer and exhaust vents around the building. An added benefit, they look great on our freshly painted siding!
  • New hot tub covers have arrived! The new covers are designed to be lightweight and durable, making them easier to remove for better enjoyment of our hot tubs. Please help us conserve energy by covering the hot tub after use.

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.

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.
