Mike and I both returned from recent summer trips. While traveling we were able to enjoy some quality time with our families, sight-seeing and some much-needed R&R. We picked up a book or two, enjoyed distraction free conversations, ate delicious food and felt the stresses of our lives melt away. It was a great reminder […]

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

Happy Summer! We are in the throes of an amazing summer here in Breckenridge, with those crisp summer evenings that are perfect for a light blanket on your favorite deck and the wild flowers all abloom on some of the best hikes in Summit. Like the old local’s adage says, “We came for the winters but stayed for the summers!” And as always, we hope you are enjoying all that summer brings as well.

We have some recent news to share with you all, and it begins with our passion statementOur Family Commitment: Always Grand Vacations—as this is the cornerstone of every decision we make.

To provide you with the service you deserve and the Grand vacation experiences you have come to expect from us, we hire only the very best talent to join our family of employees. That is why it’s so important that we continue to focus on finding solutions to some of the challenges facing the local workforce community here in the high country. These challenges include cost-of-living increases and affordable housing shortages. To learn more, please read these recent local newspaper articles: Affordable housing out of reach for Summit County’s low-income immigrants and Summit School District ranked second in highest cost of living in the state.

As the largest year-round employer in Breckenridge, we are committed to doing our part to continue recruiting and retaining top-notch employees who truly care about our owners and guests. As such, we are excited to announce that BGV has recently signed a master lease with a local developer who is going to build a new affordable employee housing complex on Airport Road in Breckenridge. This complex will be known as Barton Landing and will create 32 new rental condominiums for BGV employees and their loved ones. Barton Landing will feature 16 one-bedroom condominiums and 16 two-bedroom condominiums and will open in the fall of 2019. In addition, we are currently exploring more employee-housing master-lease options throughout the county.

By creating these affordable housing solutions for our hard-working employees, we can ensure our ability to continue providing you and your friends and family with Grand vacations created by smiling, happy employees who can afford and enjoy life in the mountains!

We appreciate your support and input around this increasingly important topic in our area. Should you have any questions or simply want to share an idea, we are all ears as we strive to be a leader by taking a solutions-based approach to our community’s issues.

Sincerely,

Mike and Mike

Mike and I couldn’t be any prouder to let our extended family know that just last month, Breckenridge Grand Vacations was named the 2018 #1 Top Workplace for a large business in Colorado, based on anonymous surveys of almost 50,000 Colorado employees, including more than 300 BGV employees! This is the first time that a […]

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

Spring break is wrapping up and we are no different than all of you in that our travels have taken us far and wide. From beaches to foreign lands to golf courses and beyond; north, south, east or west, it makes no difference where our travels take us, traveling back to our mountain home keeps us feeling grounded and purposeful in life and business.

There are many times when seeing the Rocky Mountains in the rear-view mirror while heading out on a new adventure with our families has gotten us excited like a little kid on the first day of summer break. Yeah! You know the feeling! Travel is an adventure – good, bad and indifferent – but that knowledge of a place that feels like you can just be yourself, kick back and relax and is waiting for your return is really a comforting feeling. Mike, (guess which one) has always said that Breckenridge and mountain living is an intentional place that embraces all who choose it in that when you leave, you can constantly hear it calling you back.

After (collectively) almost 60 years calling this place home, we hope that each time you visit, you began to appreciate what this place does for the lucky ones who have come to know it as their “home,” and each time you leave, you know you can come back. THIS is an amazing feeling we all share.

Hoping to see you all soon at your home in Breckenridge, and don’t forget to “SAVE THE DATE” for the 3rd Annual Rob Millisor Heart Health Walk happening on June 9 this year. What a great time to reconnect with friends and your mountain family.
