Letter from the Assistant General Manager
Greetings from Breckenridge,
What a season for fall foliage! The beautiful Colorado colors did not hold back this season. With the perfect recipe of temperatures and sunlight, the color pop was alive and vibrant. For anyone interested in learning more about the influence of weather on foliage, check out this link for more details on planning your next leaf-peeping adventure.
As the days become shorter, the local community begins to buzz with the itch for ski season. The race to be the first Colorado ski resort to open for the season is always competitive, with Keystone resort hopeful to have chairlifts spinning by mid-October! Remember to set those clocks back an hour on November 7 to enjoy an extra hour of sleep!
Foodies rejoice! The return of the Breckenridge Dining passport is here. For a mere $10 donation, the Dining Passport provides numerous discounts to the most popular restaurants in town. These specials will be available from September 27 – November 11.

That includes a commitment to competitive wages and benefits and efforts to make sure the employees who serve you can afford to live here.
