It’s hard to believe spring break is already here! Thanks to all of the recent storms, Breckenridge Ski Resort conditions are looking amazing and in great shape for some beautiful spring ski days. We typically receive the most snow in March, so we should see additional snowfall combined with warm sunny days. A very exciting and great time to be in Breck! Starting on March 21, Breckenridge Ski Resort kicks off its annual Spring Fever month-long festival, the biggest spring party in the Rocky Mountains! This will take place from March 21 – April 19.  Click Here to learn more about Spring Fever in Breckenridge. Check out this video as well.

We are in the final stretch of the ski season, so we want to make sure we remain laser-focused on providing GRAND vacations! We are also looking ahead to late April when the mountain closes and we get busy with our “block” season. During this time, our Housekeeping department will deep clean all guest units and common areas, plus, our Engineering department will focus on making sure everything is in working order and in good condition. As part of our annual reserve study, we will walk through every unit in the resort to verify if we will need to replace the items we have budgeted for. This is a very important process to ensure we have a balance between keeping the resort looking great, but not replacing items that we do not need to. This process will help us prepare for our annual reserve study updates and to create a plan for the fall blocks. We take a lot of pride in making sure the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 will maintain its 5-star quality for many years. We are looking forward to your next visit to the Grand Lodge on Peak 7!

Below are a few property updates to look for during your next visit:

  • The old towel cabinet near the Concierge Desk has been replaced with the larger towel cabinet that was in the ski locker room connector area. Please take only one towel per person.
  • ScentAir machines have been installed in the ski locker room that will add a nice fragrance to the air.
  • We’ve set aside ten ski lockers for owners up on Day Use. Please visit the Concierge Desk to learn more about reserving one.

Letter from the General Manager

The entire staff at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 hopes everyone had a great holiday season and would like to wish everyone health and happiness in 2015! Breckenridge Ski Resort and the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 have had our busiest holiday season to date. We hope if you visited us during this time you had a GRAND experience. The staff worked tirelessly during this time period to provide our owners and guests with the service they know and expect from us. We are always looking for feedback and suggestions on how we can improve, so please share any comments you have with us. Our management team would also like to ask that you share stories of exceptional customer service if you’ve experienced it during a recent visit. BGV prides itself on recognizing employees that go above and beyond their typical job descriptions, so we appreciate hearing these stories and thank you in advance for your help with this.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, we are always looking for ways to improve the vacation experience; whether it’s adding a water cooler to the pool area, or something as simple as labeling the garages so people are able to locate their cars easier. Recently, we have also been focusing on providing a better experience for owners here on Day Use. We have made 10 ski lockers available for owners up on Day Use, these can be reserved at the Concierge Desk on a first come, first served basis.  All of the recent property updates provided below were specific requests from our owners. Ski conditions are great, so book your next Day Use trip soon if you do not have an upcoming stay. We are looking forward to your next visit to the Grand Lodge on Peak 7!

Below are a few property updates to look for during your next visit:

  • Retro-fit bell carts with pneumatic wheels have replaced the older squeaky models. These have air in the tires to cut down on the amount of noise created when going across the stone tile floors.
  • Coat hooks have been added in the Day Use Lunch Room.
  • We put a SALTO key reader on the outside of the Day Use Lunch Room to make it easier for owners to access it when here on Day Use.
  • A third full-time Activities Coordinator is now available to assist owners and guests with booking both off-site and on-site activities. This will also allow us to offer more in-house activities. The extra revenue generated from the addition of the third Activities Coordinator will allow us to add this position without a net increase in expenses to the HOA.

Letter from the General Manager
The ski conditions are great and the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 is looking GRAND! This year has been the Grand Lodge on Peak 7’s first year being 100 percent open. It’s hard to believe 2014 is behind us, time sure does fly when you’re having fun! We’ve made some great improvements around the resort, and we will continue to look for ways to make the vacation experience even better for our owners. Our goal is to always look for ways to improve the resort, so please let us know if you have any suggestions. In the past year, we’ve been able to observe how our owners use the resort and will be focused on adding new and exciting activities for everyone to enjoy. We are very happy to say that we have done a phenomenal job recruiting and hiring housekeepers, and feel that our current housekeeping staff is the best we’ve ever had. We will be working with them to find better and more efficient ways to clean and operate the resort. We’ve made some other exciting changes to the leadership team at GL7, and have some really great priorities and objectives for the resort. I am more than happy to discuss some of our initiatives with anyone, so please let me know if you have any questions regarding our operations goals for the coming year. Happy New Year to all of our owners, and we hope to see you at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 very soon. Below are a few exciting property updates to look for the next time you are at GL7:

  • We are excited to announce the construction trailers have been removed, and we will install the permanent GL7 entryway signs this spring.
  • We have upgraded our Wi-Fi equipment in the South Building and added another 100MB of bandwidth for the guest Wi-Fi network.
  • All of the sofa sleepers in the One Bedroom Master units have been replaced, as well as all of the king beds in Phase 1 and 2.
  • We have installed an automatic Eucalyptus Mistifier in the steam room.
  • The display case in the connector has been removed and a comfortable seating area has been added.
