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.

GP_FI7Greetings from Gold Point Resort! In most of the country, March 20 marks the beginning of spring and warm weather. In Breckenridge, March brings us the snowiest month of the year, as well as the famous Breck Spring Fever celebrations!

The Breck Spring Fever is known for its free concerts and fun special events. Starting March 21 and continuing until closing day, the Town of Breckenridge and Breckenridge Ski Resort will be partnering together to fill the town with activities for you and your family to enjoy. New this year is the Breck Big Mountain Challenge, using the new terrain available on Peak 6, the world’s best big mountain skiers will be competing in the Sixth Senses area. The competition runs March 20 – 22 and should offer excitement even for spectators.

We are excited to share the following updates:

  • Sometimes it really is the small things that matter! We are in the process of replacing all of the alarm clocks and phones in our units. Our new alarm clocks feature built-in outlets and USB ports so you can easily charge all of your electronics. The new phones feature memory buttons for quick access to activities information and even ski or bike rentals!
  • We are happy to have new hot tub towels throughout the property. The new towels are larger in size, though we would still not recommend dashing through the snow wrapped just in a towel!
  • The Housekeeping and Engineering departments have completed a thorough organization of their various storage areas. This process has allowed them to identify efficiencies in purchasing, but will also allow them to work more efficiently each and every day.
  • As we look forward to a new electronic lock system, we are happy to announce that we have selected SALTO Networked Locking Systems as our vendor. The Grand Lodge on Peak 7 has been using SALTO Systems for the past eight years, and it has proven to be a durable and easy to use system.

gp_feb[1]Letter from the General Manager

Greetings from Gold Point Resort! We are excited to be midway through a wonderful ski season. Although conditions will always vary day-to-day, overall, the snow coverage has been pretty amazing the majority of the ski season. The resort was even able to open Peak 6 well before Christmas this year. It’s been a great first half, but we are most excited that the best snow has yet to come, as February and March are traditionally the snowiest months of the year!

As we settle in for the heart of our winter season, the staff at Gold Point Resort will continue to work hard to reduce our energy consumption during these chilly months. In 2012, the American lodging industry produced over 7 million tons of waste, used 64 trillion gallons of water, and generated over 23 million tons of CO2 gas. During your next visit, help us do our part to reduce our impact on the environment. When you pull out of the garage, make sure the light is turned off and close the door behind you; turn off the lights and television when not in use, use water wisely and help us recycle by following the posted guidelines. Help us ensure that Breckenridge remains a beautiful place to visit not only for our children, but also their grandchildren and many generations to come.

Property Updates:

  • We have installed LED bulbs in all of the common areas, unit garages and all of the “behind the scene” spaces.
  • We will continue to expand our use of LED lights in order to reduce our energy consumption, and also to provide a more comfortable experience in our rooms.
  • New digital thermostats will be installed throughout our units. These will offer increased comfort and accuracy, as well as an ability to control the heat more efficiently.
  • The fireplace thermostat will be replaced with a timer to make the controls easier to use and to help conserve natural gas.
