Letter from the General Manager

Greetings from beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado!

We have enjoyed a beautiful fall up here in the high country but are excited for the snow to start falling! Weather conditions permitted raft trips through Brown’s Canyon all the way until September 4, with the first snowfall coming on the 16th, just a few days later! As our summer activities and events begin to conclude with the cooler weather, winter is just around the corner.

The Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival is taking place once again this year on October 20-22. The Grand Tasting will be held at the Riverwalk Center on October 21 at 4 p.m. Admission provides a complimentary tasting glass, delicious craft spirits tasting, craft cocktails, people’s choice voting, artisanal snacks and live music!

Please join us for a week full of fun, Halloween-themed activities the last week of October. Our Activities staff is currently putting together a list of fun activities that we will be hosting, and we look forward to seeing everyone’s costumes as we hand out candy at each designated location around property!

October marks the start of our biannual deep cleans and maintenance weeks. This work will be completed from September 29 – November 19. During this time, deep cleaning and other repair projects will be completed around the resort, as we look to maintain the property in superb condition. As part of this, we expect a few closures of our pools:

  • November 1 – Building 5 pool will be closed for the day
  • November 8 – Building 1 pool will be closed for the day

Here are a few other things happening around the resort:

Refresh Spa has introduced new services to their menu, including a sports massage and a nourishing scalp treatment. They offer weekly specials, so follow them on Facebook or stop by to enjoy one of their relaxing services during your next visit to Breckenridge.

Work is in progress to add a new amenity to the resort: a new library will be located in Building 2! The library will be a comfortable, quiet area to enjoy an assortment of books, complete some work, or just relax. Look forward to this amenity opening towards the end of the month!

As temperatures dropped below freezing, our landscaping irrigation system has been prepared for winter. This work has been completed earlier this year, as we hope to minimize any damage that the freezing temperatures can cause to the system.
