View from the Bottom

The View from the Bottom is Mike Millisor’s monthly letter to all of the stakeholders of the Breckenridge Grand Vacations family of resorts.

I can’t believe it’s been just over one year since we opened our newest resort. And now, the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 has truly built its reputation as a “grand slam” for our many owners and guests who have had the pleasure of experiencing this unique resort.

Every time I walk around this property, I am reminded of the vision we had so many years ago when we introduced the first member of our resort family: Gold Point Resort. Guests now walking through the halls at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 are some of the happiest people in town – and I know why! It’s because there is no better location in Breckenridge — slopeside — to really experience the best that Breckenridge has going on in the winter. Once guests leave the ski lockers, it is just steps to the lift line. The deck seating has plenty of nooks for guests to settle into for picnics or just plain lounging, as well as arguably the best views back over Baldy Mountain and the Continental Divide.

Wherever you own with us, be sure to stop by and treat yourself to a meal at Grand Colorado’s restaurant, Robbie’s Tavern, named after my brother and former partner. It has become one of those types of restaurants where “they always know your name” and you, too, will feel right at home while dining at Robbie’s. In addition, be sure to carve some time out to enjoy the Infinity Spa — arguably one of the most luxuriously appointed spas in the area — and I have seen my fair share.

We are truly in the smile business, and we are committed to making every BGV vacation experience the best you’ve ever had. If you would like to explore ownership at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8, call us at 866-423-6974 to set up a tour. I’d love to show you around and tell you what else is happening in the spring and in Building 3.

SHERATON STEAMBOAT RESORT VILLAS

As much as we all love Breckenridge and Summit County, it’s sometimes nice to venture out and try something new. Colorado is a big place and there’s more than one mountain to shred and hike. Which brings me to mention Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas.

VIEW FROM THE BOTTOM

The View from the Bottom is Mike Millisor’s monthly letter to all of the stakeholders of the Breckenridge Grand Vacations family of resorts.

Happy new year!

I hope you and your family had a great holiday season. My family and I enjoyed the balmy weather of Hawaii, while the town of Breckenridge was gifted with a good dose of snow on Christmas Day – 15 inches, to be exact! I hope those of you who were here for your week got to enjoy some great outdoor fun on the mountain and around town.

In addition to connecting and celebrating with family and friends, one of my favorite things about the holidays is the plethora of opportunities to help others. This is something that I, along with most of the BGV staff, proudly participate in. My late brother Rob was a true believer in philanthropy. He used to say, “to whom much is given, much is expected.” Rob inspired all of us at BGV to give back to the communities in which we live and support important causes that enhance our quality of life.

To that end, you will notice something new in your HOA dues invoice this month. You will have the opportunity to voluntarily donate $3.00 per year, not only to the American Resort Development Association’s Resort Owners’ Coalition (ARDA-ROC), but also to The Summit Foundation. I’ll tell you why these two non-profit organizations are so important to the BGV Family.

The Summit Foundation is our leading local philanthropic organization. It is a pillar of our community and provides resources to help working families; resolves important community issues – including education, health, and housing; and helps to preserve the quality of life in Breckenridge and surrounding mountain communities. Those of you who have been here for Labor Day weekend are probably familiar with the Great Rubber Duck Race held in town. If you didn’t already know it, this fun-filled event is one of The Summit Foundation’s biggest fundraisers. You can learn more about this organization’s work and exemplary reputation at www.Summit Foundation.org.

ARDA-ROC advocates on behalf of the fractional ownership industry to protect the rights of our owners. These include, but aren’t limited to, defending against potentially burdensome fractional ownership tax legislation – especially as more states face budgetary shortfalls; holding companies accountable for any deceptive business practices; supporting non-judicial foreclosure legislation, which saves time and money for owners and HOAs; and ensuring that your personal information isn’t shared with third party companies. In other words, they work to support and protect your ownership on numerous fronts. You can learn more about ARDA-ROC at www.ardaroc.org.

Although we’re always reminded about the importance of giving around the holidays, I find it gratifying to know my donations are helpful to others throughout the year. So, if you are able, thanks for supporting one or both organizations that are near and dear to the BGV heart.

In the meantime, I wish you and your family a very happy, healthy, and prosperous 2018!

Warm regards,

Mike Millisor
