Grand Lodge on Peak 7 Property Information

Letter from the General Manager

March gave beautiful weather to all our spring break visitors. If you did not get a chance to visit last month, no need to worry! April’s bluebird days are Breckenridge locals’ favorite time to hit the slopes, and you will be sure to enjoy them, too!

Grand News:

  • Grand Lodge on Peak 7 owners Clinton and Leslie Popovich were the February winners of two Epic Passes for the 2017-2018 ski and ride season. Congratulations!
  • Nicole Raciboski, formerly a Front Desk and Spa Supervisor, has accepted the Guest Services Manager role. She has worked at Grand Lodge on Peak 7 for four years and we look forward to the continued success of the Guest Services team under her leadership.
  • Cathy Galvez, Room Quality Supervisor, has been recognized by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) for her superior service.  She is a silver medal winner for Housekeeping Team Member. Congratulations, Cathy!

As the ski season winds down, the staff begins to gear up for property improvement projects. Listed below are April’s closures:

  • The spa locker room is getting a brand-new tile floor! This area will be closed from April 22 through May 19. The Day Use lockers will remain available during this time.
  • Soothe Spa and the Grotto will be closed from April 22 through April 28. Refresh Spa located at Grand Timber Lodge will be open during this time for the use of owners and guests.
  • The plunge pool will be closed from April 26 through April 28 for deep cleaning and routine maintenance.

In addition to these closures, owners can look forward to many other improvement projects. Over the next two months, we will begin upgrading our unit televisions and switching to an interactive guide channel. The first floor hallways, ski locker room and library will get new carpet. The South Building common areas will get new paint. We hope you are as excited about these projects as we are.

For more information about upcoming closures and resort improvements, please review the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 Facebook page or call the resort at 970.453.3330.

As always, we want to be better tomorrow than we are today, so suggestions for improvement are always welcome. Thank you all for a Grand 2016-2017 ski and ride season!

March is the most popular time of year due to plenty of snow for all kinds of winter activities and an abundance of sunny days. The Grand Lodge on Peak 7 is filled with owners enjoying spring break with their families. If you are celebrating a special occasion while staying at the Grand Lodge, please let us know so we can help you celebrate!

GRAND News:

  • Congratulations to owners Ingrid and Leo DeGreef!  They were the Concierge January raffle winners of two Epic Passes for the 2017/2018 ski season.
  • Pool furniture replacements continue, with new sitting chairs and side tables. These pieces are more durable, sturdy, and visually pleasing. Please remember that when using the pool areas, ski equipment is not permitted in these areas. This includes both the indoor and outdoor pool areas.
  • A refrigerator has been added to the Day Use Lunch Room for our owners to use while using day passes.
  • A second microwave and additional seating have been installed in the Day Use Lunch Room.

Traveling has its fair share of challenges. It is easy to mix up travel dates, forget to cancel Day Use reservations and items sent prior to arrival can get lost. We wanted to share a few tips to help avoid these traveling downers:

  • Prior to arrival, visit Grand Central to check the Calendar of Weeks list. To find this, log in, select Grand Lodge on Peak 7, then select Reservations. You will be able to view the weeks for 2017 through 2021 and their corresponding dates.
  • 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.
  • When shipping items to the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, UPS or FedEX are the only methods of shipment. Please use the following address:

Attention (Your Name)

1979 Ski Hill Road

Breckenridge CO, 80424

The US Postal Service does not ship items to the Grand Lodge on Peak 7.

  • If you have questions about this, please call Guest Services at 970.453.3330. They are available to assist you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The staff at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 wish all of our owners a wonderful spring break and month of March. If there is anything we can do to make your vacation more memorable, please do not hesitate to let us know.

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.

  • The fourth-floor sales gallery office spaces are being converted into three two-bedroom units. The transformation will be ongoing through 2017.

The Grand Lodge on Peak 7 would like to remind our owners of a couple of resort polices:

  • Owners are permitted two dogs per reservation if they have reserved a pet-friendly unit. Owners with pets in non-pet friendly units, pure units, are subject to additional cleaning cost and rental fees. Please call the Owner Support department at 877-453-4440 for any unit request prior to check-in.
  • Smoking tobacco is allowed on private decks of the units and in designated areas at the exits of the resorts. No smoking or use of vapor devices is permitted on property. Violation of the smoking policy can result in a fine of up to $500.

We are always looking for ways to improve your resort and ownership experience. Please share your ideas with the management team, as we are happy to review all suggestions.
