10481968_10153013839741480_8501084080276339688_oSnow has returned to the high country! Currently, we are in the middle of a huge storm, and they are predicting a lot more snow through the end of the season! I would like to take a quick minute to introduce myself; my name is Michelle Ellis, and I recently began my new position as Assistant General Manager at Grand Timber Lodge. I have been with Breckenridge Grand Vacations for just over three years. I started with the company at the Breck Inn where I became the General Manager. I am extremely excited about my new role at Grand Timber Lodge and cannot wait to get the opportunity to meet you all, our owners!

Here are a few updates about some of the happenings around the resort:

  • Christy Sports is launching a new “Year-Round Ski Storage” program for the owners of Grand Timber Lodge. The program is valued at $200 and the package includes: one year of storage for one set of skis or snowboards and boots at Grand Timber Lodge, along with two edge and buff waxes. If you are interested, act fast, because there are only 50 spots available, and they will be on a first come first served basis. Please contact our on-property location for more information at 970-453-8242.
  • The Lodgepole Market is now open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week! They have a great selection of grab-and-go breakfast options that you can take for a quick bite as well as fresh coffee every morning. They also have various grocery and household items for purchase. Please take a few minutes during your next stay to visit The Lodgepole Market located in Building 6!
  • We are delighted to announce the return of the Grand Timber Lodge Owner Parties! These will be held every Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. in the Lodgepole Bar and Grill. The cost will be $10 per adult and $5 per child. This price will include two drink tickets for beer or wine as well as light appetizers. This is a great chance to mingle with other owners and our management staff who will be attending each party. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
  • The Grand Timber Lodge Activities department has come up with the wonderful idea of taking family portraits for our guests while they are here on property. This event will take place on Wednesday afternoons in various locations around Grand Timber Lodge. The cost is $5 per family and we will send a digital copy of your picture once they have been processed. This is a great way to capture a moment from your vacation and create a lasting memory of your time spent together.
  • In the most recent GTL HOA Board Meeting there was a change made to the Day Use policy. The most updated policy states: Day Use privileges will be limited based on availability and is limited to groups of eight or less people, per deeded unit, per given day, including the owners in the total count. The only exception is for overnight stays where the owner has reserved Day Use for the day of check out, in which case, their Day Use group size should not exceed the maximum occupancy for the unit the owner stayed in. This will be effective starting May 1, 2015.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. We are looking forward to a busy month of March and hope to see many of you here!

gtl_feb[1]As I look out the window and see the snowstorm that we’re enduring, I know we’ve pleased Ullr. Breckenridge has been blessed with a great ski season so far, there’s snow in the forecast and a ton of amazing events are about to kick off. This year’s Ullr Fest was a

great success and the Breckenridge Grand Vacations float took 1st place in the parade! We always look forward to February with great anticipation, as one of our favorite events is the International Snow Sculpting Championships! To get to experience this amazing art up close and personal is quite amazing. We love welcoming our owners and guests who regularly schedule their vacations around this
magical event. The snow sculpting will take place just down the street in the Riverwalk Center parking lot, so grab a cup of hot cocoa and head down to join the festivities and witness some spectacular art!

Day Use Reminder:

As we inch closer to spring break season, don’t forget to book your parking reservation in advance. During this busy time, we will have a very full resort and additional guest parking can be extremely
difficult to find, especially on the weekends. Also, please remember any guest must be 21 years old, or accompanied by someone 21 years or older in order to take advantage of the amenities at the resort.

Property Updates:

  • We have acquired a brand new shuttle which will assist guests and owners in getting around town much more efficiently.
  • Our wireless network has been upgraded, providing faster network connectivity around the resort.

Letter from the General Manager

Happy New Year from your family at Grand Timber Lodge!

The holidays are behind us, and we look forward to enjoying the many winter activities that Summit County has to offer. 2014 was a year filled with many property updates, and we loved sharing these improvements with all of you as you shared your holidays with us. As a result of all the hard work from each and every staff member, Grand Timber Lodge moved into the 7th place on Trip Advisor among all hotels in Breckenridge. We are very proud of that accomplishment, and we will continue our commitment to provide owners and guests with the best vacation experience. Speaking of great vacations, don’t forget to plan your visit to Breckenridge to celebrate Ullr Fest, and help us encourage the Norse God of Snow to bless this season with plenty of fresh powder.

We also successfully closed out the 2014 resort budget and not only met but exceeded our budget goals! We also received final approval on the 2015 HOA budget and look forward to another busy year.

We hope to see you in the New Year soon!

Kelley Jensen
Grand Timber Lodge General Manager


Property Updates:

  • Brand new Grand Timber Lodge shuttle
  • Enhanced wireless internet around the resort


How to Ski-in and Ski-out from Grand Timber Lodge:

Winter is in full swing at Grand Timber Lodge. Hopefully you and your family have had a chance to get away and enjoy some of the early season snow!  We are looking forward to a snowy winter.

The staff at Grand Timber have been very busy ensuring that everything is in tip top shape and ready for your arrival.  We did a lot of major work this past fall, so our focus this winter is on making sure every guest has a great experience.  We have hired several new staff, so please stop by and introduce yourself the next time you are on property.

Just a friendly reminder that parking has once again become a challenge, so please remember to make your parking reservation before you arrive for Day Use.  We would hate for you to arrive and not be able to park on property.  Should that happen though, remember we have a wonderful shuttle service that can bring you back to the property after you have parked in one of the town parking lots.  Also keep in mind that parking during the week is much more available and the ski slopes are much less crowded!
