Greetings Everyone!

Spring has finally arrived in Breckenridge, and after a very long but great winter, all of us are glad to see some milder weather. But… something is different here this year … You may or may not know that Breckenridge Ski Resort has extended the season until the end of May! This is great news for us and for all of you who love getting out for some Spring skiing or riding.

Although Peaks 9 and 10 are now closed, 1,000 acres on Peaks 6, 7 and 8 are available for turns on intermediate (including some groomers – yay!), advanced and expert-level terrain (please note, there are not any beginner runs open now). There’s even a small terrain park available. Peak 7 is the hub of operations for the rest of the season, with the Independence Super Chair operating to provide access to the runs on Peak 7, Claimjumper on Peak 8 and the higher lifts. What’s more, Pioneer Crossing at the top of the lift is open Friday through Sunday and has outdoor grill service during the week. Sevens, located in the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, is open daily. They’re serving a limited breakfast menu, but full menu for lunch and dinner. And, Spring skiing/riding in Breckenridge is even more complete with the energetic DJ music spinning at the base! Everyone is having such a fun time, so we hope those of you who like spending time on the mountain will come on up and enjoy some springtime in Breckenridge. Plus, it’s an excellent way to use your Bonus Time!

Also, while we’re on the topic of great activities, it is now only one month away until we host the 4th Annual Rob Millisor Heart Health Walk on Saturday June 8th. For our owners who are new to the BGV family, Rob was our partner and brother who passed away in 2015 while on a philanthropic mission in Nepal. In spite of being physically fit, he had an undiagnosed heart condition that took his life during that trip. The Walk is our way to raise money for heart health awareness in the community by providing education and free screenings as well as support for various heart-related initiatives, so that others can potentially avoid the tragedy that happened to Rob at age 51.

This event takes place at Carter Park and includes a 5K trail run, 5K trail walk and 1 mile walk through town, along with live music, children’s activities, vendors, raffles, schwag, and a delicious heart-healthy lunch! It’s an upbeat, fun and family-friendly gathering of people coming together for a very worthy cause and a day of fresh air in the mountains. If you’re interested, click here to register. We really hope you can join us!

Sending our best to all of you,

Mike and Mike

    I think that it is Great that you honor Rob’s memory in this way!

    I do want to take a moment to let you know that John in your Owner Relations department, went above & beyond recently in trying to accomodate a reservation for me while my daughter and two grandkids are going to be here in July. He worked hard to make it work and I truly appreciate his hard work and kindness!
    Thank you for employing such dedicated people!
