Letter from the General Manager

Happy summer from your family at Grand Timber Lodge!

Our visitors though the month of May were not only of the human species, as we were treated to a few visits from the local moose! Our neighborhood fox has also made his return as the weather warms up. Although these guests are truly memorable, remember that they are wild animals and we should be careful to give them enough space for our own safety as well as theirs. No worries about getting close enough to see them: our Activities staff gets beautiful pictures from afar and shares them regularly on our Facebook page!

New for visitors to Breckenridge this summer is the greatly enhanced Breckenridge Epic Discovery program, which opens June 9! Epic Discovery features adventure and educational opportunities for families and visitors of all ages. Incorporating the great amenities of the Peak 8 Fun Park, this new program has also added a thrilling zipline that can reach speeds in excess of 60 MPH! Please stop by the Concierge Desk for more details.

Here is a taste of what has been going on around the property:

  • New living room furniture has been installed throughout the entire resort. We hope that you will enjoy the two chairs in the living room, along with the memory foam mattress on the sleeper sofa. Look for the new lamps, arriving some time in June!
  • Window replacement in Building 2 is also complete, save for a few small items that will be buttoned up in the warmer weather. Even though we replaced over 72 windows and 30 balcony doors, only one dumpster was taken to the landfill! The remaining removed items have found new life as shelter at the community gardens, keeping the young plants warm overnight.
  • Working with our friends at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, we have been able to breathe new life into the Day Use room! The area now features wooden tables and a comfortable seating area, so you may relax or enjoy a comfortable meal during a day trip to the property.
  • Please help us congratulate Gus and Lori Gustine. They have won two Epic Local passes for next season! Stop by the Concierge Desk to ask how you can be entered to win, too.
