Grand Colorado on Peak 8 Property Information

Greetings from Breckenridge! We hope everyone had a chance to visit Breckenridge recently to enjoy all the snow we received in January and that you are eagerly awaiting more snow in February. All the snowfall in January has helped Breckenridge Ski Resort open additional terrain across the mountain and currently 80 percent of the mountain is […]

We hope everyone had a great holiday season, and we would like to wish everyone a happy new year. If you did not have a chance to visit Breckenridge this holiday season, we encourage you to do so next year. There is something magical about being in town in December, and we hope some of our owners were able to experience it.

The end of 2017 was an exciting time for us, as we celebrated the Grand Colorado’s one-year anniversary on December 17, and reflected on everything we accomplished in the past year. Huge kudos to the entire staff, who worked so hard over the past year to get the Grand Colorado to where it is today, and continues to work hard to make the Grand Colorado even better.

In December we opened the rooftop grilling area located on the second floor between the two buildings, directly on top of the Grand Lobby. The area has six natural gas grills and several seating areas with beautiful views. We were also pleased to open a new bathroom located on the Plaza level right outside the Owner/Guest ski lockers.

In addition to the added amenities, we are always looking for ways to provide better service. Something new for the Grand Colorado is having robes in the rooms upon check-in.

You will find the robes rolled up and placed in the cubbies in each room upon arrival. We think it’s nice to have the robes right there when you are putting on a bathing suit to head to the aquatics area or to the Grotto. Each room will already have two robes in it upon check-in, but if you have more than two people in your room and need additional robes, please request this at the time of booking. We will make sure to place the appropriate number of robes in your room upon arrival.  At check-out, please leave all robes in your room to avoid being charged for them. If you are visiting on Day Use and would like to have a robe for the day, please visit the Concierge to receive one for a $5 charge.  We hope everyone likes this new idea.

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,
