The snow is melting, flowers are blooming and it’s finally summertime! The kids are out of school (or almost), and the options of activities to do are endless. Between the Peak 8 Fun Park, rafting, hiking and biking, there is never enough time in the day to do everything.

Congratulations to last month’s winner Michelle Livingston, and take a look at some of the reasons why shoulder season is a Grand time to be in Breckenridge!
“Mud season is a nice, quiet getaway in the mountains. The resort is not as busy and easy to get rooms reserved. Just hanging out at the hot tubs and pools is great. And an occasional bike ride to Frisco and back on the paved trail.” – Douglas Flerlage
“So glad we are here this weekend — fewer people, beautiful weather and discounts! This is a great advantage to living less than two hours from our favorite mountain resort!” – Debbie Kelleher
“Beautiful weather, quieter resort for a no worries getaway with the kids. The pool is always open and the hiking is great!” – Tamra Axworthy
“We love mud season because it’s quiet and you can actually relax and enjoy the spring time weather! Heading to the hot tubs soon to do just that on this beautiful Sunday!” – Alicia Miller
“We love the pool any season! But during mud season it’s a bit quieter and really nice to enjoy the amenities with less commotion. Also love the great weather!” – Michelle Normandin
“Much needed relaxation time. The kids loved their pool time and we enjoyed our time at the spa. It’s nice for some ‘down time’ after the hustle and bustle of the ski season.” – Terri Blank
“Love to use the mud season to enjoy everything Grand Lodge offers, and you can always find some good deals downtown to get ready for next winter!” – Mike Bellendir
“R & R -With small crowds more in ‘family mode’ kids love the pool pretty much all to themselves and you still get to enjoy seeing the snow on the mountain.” – Orlinda Rivera
“I love mud season because it’s so quiet! No shoulder-to-shoulder crowds everywhere, just nice and relaxing!” – Ann Baker
“We love the activities offered at the resort any time of year. During our most recent stay, we all enjoyed learning how to make survival bracelets!” – Jamie Recio (pic)
“Just enjoyed a mud season girls getaway. Fun times in the movie theater, hot tub. Snow plus a little sunshine!” – Laura Johnson
“My favorite part is the dining passport that gives all the deals to the best restaurants in town.” – Nick Miller
“Our first stay after we bought our ownership was bonus time in early October. We woke up in the morning greeted by a beautiful blanket of the first snow. Gorgeous! That memory helped seal the wisdom of our ownership purchase!” – Alexander Vallens
“Gave last week to our son, who is in the army, and his family – “Greatest Vacation we have ever had. Love this time of year. The kids had so much fun.” It doesn’t get better than that.” – Scott Sparks
“A long weekend in Breck regardless of the season does wonders for the soul!” – Sarah Storm
“Mud season gives us a chance to relax at GL7 and enjoy Breck when not many others realize what a great time it is to be there!” – Roberta Caciari
“My favorite is being able to explore the town and surrounding areas without the crowd and craziness. Breckenridge is my happy place in mud season.” – Pam Portillo
“The quiet and the calm totally allows one to fully enjoy the beauty of the resort and the area. We feel very blessed to own there!! Looking forward to our July 4th week!” – Leisa Johnson
“Love that it’s less crowded, great dining deals and beautiful weather!” – Donna Robbins
“My favorite part was getting away with my girlfriends for the weekend. We enjoyed the restaurants and happy hour; soaking and relaxing in the hot tub; getting cozy by the fireplace with a good movie; and bringing a few crafting projects to catch up on. Thanks GTL for a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend.” – Kim Klinkovsky
“It’s always a quiet and peaceful time to get away in Breckenridge.” – Jacki Hayden
“The low altitude hikes.” – John Hanson
“The flowers are peaking their colorful petals up through the ground and sometimes snow, too. I love Breck this time of year! It’s quiet and peaceful and the Grand Timber is the place to be…love it!” – Susan Mittuch
“Mud season means fewer people! And, this time of year there’s the possibility of windflowers starting to show their faces. It’s very relaxing.” – Ann Baker
“Just had a great weekend! Laid back . Even in town.” – Eleanor Dechant
I plan on spending some great weekends with my family at Breckenridge this summer and enjoying the wonderful walking paths and trails in the area.
Our summer trip always includes lots of walks through town and on the trails with stops in the shops and playgrounds, especially to get ice cream. We love the Putt and Play Junction at the Ice Arena. It’s a great place for our kids to burn off a lot of energy. Of course, we always take the gondola to Peak 8 fun and never miss a chance to stop at the arcade in Eric’s basement. The options are endless and we try our best to squeeze in all the fun during our trip!
