Grand Colorado on Peak 8 Property Information

Letter from the General Manager

We are very excited to say that the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 (GC8) has been open for a few, very successful couple of months! The Grand Colorado on Peak 8 is extremely fortunate to have a wonderful staff that is committed to creating Grand vacations—they’re always looking for ways to make your time at the Grand Colorado unforgettable. If you have been an owner with us at our other resorts, you may see some familiar faces welcoming you to the Grand Colorado. Many of our staff members worked for Breckenridge Grand Vacations before joining the GC8 team, so we knew they would be a perfect fit for our newest resort.

We want to remind all owners about our Day Use parking policies. Please make sure to cancel all Day Use reservations or waitlist requests that you will not be able to use. If reservations go unused, owners will lose Day Use privileges for seven days, including any existing reservations. If you are awarded a Day Use parking spot from the waitlist and do not check-in, the same penalty will be applied.

As construction on future phases continues, the Operations team is focused on adding new features and amenities to some of the areas of the resort that opened in Phase 1.

  • The indoor kid’s pool play feature was installed in February and we are currently working on getting the big slide open for older kids and adults.
  • The upper deck of the stables lot will open shortly, allowing us to offer more Day Use parking for our owners.
  • In addition to these two larger updates, you will notice smaller additions throughout the resort, such as decorations in the pool, more signage to help you find your way around and clocks installed at various locations on property.

The entire GC8 staff is committed to making the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 the best ski-in/ski-out resort in Breckenridge, and, we hope, one of the nicest ski resorts you will ever experience. Please continue to share any ideas on how we can make your resort better. We appreciate everyone’s support and help in making GC8 better every day!

We look forward to seeing you during your next visit to the Grand Colorado.

Sincerely,

Jason Bretz
General Manager, Grand Colorado on Peak 8

Work Hard, Play Harder: Find the Perfect Career in Breckenridge

Most of us BGV employees ended up living amongst these gorgeous mountains in pursuit of adventure, leaving hopes of a career behind. We were willing to give up traditional lifestyles, choosing instead to focus on living for the moment. We did so gladly. We understood that happiness is achieved through experiences that can’t always be encountered from behind a desk. We kissed our hopes for a career goodbye because we thought that was the compromise we had to make in order to live and play in Summit County. And, it seemed worth it, at least for a short while.

But, what if we told you that you can have your cake and eat it, too? That’s right! You CAN grow your professional career, all while living out your dreams in beautiful Breckenridge. How? Work for Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV). It really is that simple.

BGV is known as the employer of choice in Summit County, consistently distinguished as a Top Workplace by the Denver Post and recently named as the Best Place to Work by the Summit Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards. BGV has just over 500 employees, almost 200 of which have been with the company for a significant amount of time. Career longevity is strong at BGV.

With 68 employees having worked at the company for three to five years, 81 employees having worked at the company for five to ten years, and 30 employees having worked at the company for over 10 years, the proof is in the pudding (or, the powder). In case you weren’t aware, those are extremely impressive statistics for this seasonal resort town!

How does BGV manage to not only hang on to employees but get them excited to go to work every day? According to Guest Services Supervisor, Julianna Nopson, “BGV goes above and beyond when it comes to taking care of their employees! When you are a part of BGV, you truly feel like a part of a big happy family who really cares about each other!”

BGV has two full-time employees dedicated to training staff on the BGV culture and it makes a Grand difference. The company embraces an inverted pyramid leadership style, making the executive leadership team approachable and supportive to any level employee. Everyone at the company is treated as an equal, even by the Owners/ Developers, Mike Millisor and Mike Dudick, who know the majority of their 500 employees by name. There are many other reasons that members of the BGV family stick around for so long, but you’ll have to learn more about that in your interview! Apply today at BGVjobs.com.

We are very happy to announce that 2017 welcomed the newest BGV resort to our family, and our fantastic staff is very excited to be a part of this beautiful resort. We had a successful first month of reservations and look forward to creating many more Grand vacation experiences. Phase 1 of the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 (GC8) opened with 37 units, along with the aquatics facilities that include three pools and five hot tubs. We will be designating the upper-level hot tub near the large waterfall as an “adults only” area in the very near future. Please look for the signs indicating this during your next visit.

We are also very happy to announce that our onsite restaurant, Robbie’s Tavern at the Bergenhoff, is open. Robbie’s Tavern is currently the only privately operated restaurant at Breckenridge Ski Resort and offers great food, an extensive wine list, a great selection of draft beers, a variety of cocktails, and a wonderful atmosphere. Please check it out the next time you are visiting Breckenridge Ski Resort.

Additional amenities currently open at GC8 include the Ski Locker Rooms located on the plaza level and the Day Use Lunch Room located on the first floor outside the indoor pool area.

The Operations team is always looking for ways to improve the vacation experience and Day Use experience at our resort, so please do not hesitate to share any feedback with us on how we can make your resort better.

Thank you for reading! We look forward to seeing you during your next visit.
