Grand Colorado on Peak 8 Property Information

Letter from the General Manager

Ski season has arrived! Arapahoe Basin opened on October 13 for the 2017-2018 ski season, and Breckenridge Ski Resort has a planned opening date of November 10. The staff at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 is very excited to kick off the ski season, and we hope everyone shares the same level of excitement! This will be the first year the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 will be open for the first day of the ski season at Breckenridge Ski Resort, and our location at the base of Peak 8 will make opening day even more enjoyable with direct lift access right out our door. Peak 8 is the first area of the ski resort to open every year, so the owners of GC8 will have easy access to this terrain year after year. Another exciting announcement is Robbie’s Tavern will be open for breakfast at 8 a.m. starting mid-November, so you can enjoy a coffee, a burrito, or a variety of homemade items while you sit and watch for the lifts to open right out the tavern window!

The staff has been very busy performing deep cleans and preventative maintenance around the resort in preparation for ski season. We will now begin to shift our focus away from getting the resort set up for ski season to looking for opportunities to enhance the vacation experience and the Day Use experience. One exciting addition to look for is a family bathroom located on the Plaza level near the ski locker rooms. Another exciting new feature is the fire table located on the outdoor pool deck overlooking the slopes. Our Activities Department will also be offering a s’more-making activity, so please stop by to sign up for this great family recreation. We will also be selling supplies to make s’mores in the Peak 8 Market.

The rooftop grilling area will be completed in November in time for the busy holiday season. It will have six grills with seating areas so you can enjoy the beautiful views while using the grills. The regrading of Ski Hill Road will also be completed in time for ski season, and the work on Building 3 will be put on hold until the spring. So, please come visit soon to see all the wonderful additions we have had since last ski season!

Thank you for reading and please share any questions or comments you have.

Sincerely,

Letter from the General Manager

The first summer at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 has passed and our staff is looking forward to the upcoming ski season!  We are very excited to have all the amenities open for the 2017-2018 ski season, and we hope all our owners are looking forward to returning home to see the exciting additions since last winter.

The Construction team has been very busy this summer and fall, getting everything open in Phase 1 and 2.  Recently, we have been able to open Theaters 1,2 and 3, with almost 150 movies downloaded onto our server for all to enjoy. The final movie theater will open with the first-floor Phase 3 units in late winter or early spring. We also have the full line-up of DIRECTV channels, with HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and NFL Sunday Ticket available in all theaters. As a reminder, you may have one advanced movie reservation with any overnight stay in a residence. Additional theater reservations can be made the day-of based on availability when on property (this also applies for Day Use reservations).

The operations staff will be busy this fall, performing deep cleans and minor maintenance repairs in all the resort common areas and residences. We perform these deep cleans and minor maintenance repairs two times each year during our lowest occupancy levels: once in the fall and once in the spring. Breckenridge Grand Vacations prides itself in proving quality lodging at all our resorts, and focusing on getting our resorts looking pristine has helped us accomplish this over the years. We hope you will notice how well our resorts are maintained during your next visit.

Thank you for reading and we look forward to welcoming you home soon!

Sincerely,

The entire Breckenridge Grand Vacations family is excited to be working on the final touches for the  Grand Lobby in preparation for its opening this month! In addition to the lobby opening in July, we are also putting together the final preparations for the Phase 2 amenities. They include the Lobby Bar, fitness center, movie theaters, Grotto, arcade, business center/library, Peak 8 Market and Infinity Spa. Not all of these amenities will open at the same time as the lobby, but they will not be far behind and will be worth the wait. We appreciate all the feedback and suggestions from our owners and guests throughout the building of the Grand Colorado on Peak 8. We hope you will be able to see how they are incorporated into the new phases of the resort.

We also believe in collecting feedback from our employees about their level of job satisfaction and how we can help improve that. Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) has always made it a priority to be the employer of choice in Summit County, and in recent years BGV has been named a top company to work for in Colorado. We strongly believe that employees who have a high level of job satisfaction and are recognized for their hard work become a greater asset to our team and will take more pride in going above and beyond for our owners and guests.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations does a fantastic job of recognizing the staff for their Grand customer service, and we would like to ask for your assistance in identifying more employees to recognize. If an employee has made a positive impact on your vacation, please share your experience with us. We would love to recognize them for it. You can share it with any of our staff, email me directly, jbretz@breckgv.com, or fill out a nomination online so the employee will be recognized for a Grand Vacation Award.

On July 5, a wildland fire was spotted on Peak 2 in Breckenridge. This fire spread over 87 acres and lead to pre-evacuation measures for some areas within Breckenridge. With the help of local and federal resources, we are happy to report the fire is 85 percent contained and no longer represents a threat to the town or public. We are extremely grateful for the amazing job the firefighters and community did to keep all of its guests and residents safe.

Thank you for reading and we look forward to seeing you at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 very soon.
