View from the Bottom

The View from the Bottom is Mike Millisor and Mike Dudick’s monthly letter to all of the stakeholders of the Breckenridge Grand Vacations family of resorts.

Wow! What a great start to the winter season! An abundance of early snow made for a wonderful Thanksgiving week, especially for those owners who got to share a delicious meal with family and friends here in Breckenridge. Ullr, the fabled Norse God of Snow, has definitely been watching over the town, blessing us with more than 100 inches of fluffy powder so far. The Breckenridge Ski Resort already has a 35” base, and almost half the lifts and trails are open. Of course, if you prefer other activities here in the winter, the Breckenridge Nordic Center is now open, as is the Frisco Nordic Center and tubing hill at the Adventure Park. And this is just the beginning of December!

All this good news has gotten us geared up for yet another fantastic holiday season here in town. The “Lighting of Breckenridge” this weekend, along with the “Race of the Santas,” will put the locals and visitors in a festive mood. Like you, we love the opportunity to get together with family and friends, as well as our employees, for some good cheer and to celebrate all that we have enjoyed together during the past year. This also gets us thinking about all the great things yet to come!

Some news we are really excited to share with you is the coming of the Stinky Boot Saloon to Grand Timber Lodge. Formerly the Lodgepole Bar & Grill, the new eatery, nicknamed “The Boot,” will open later this month. The Boot is being created by the incredible team that runs the much-loved Robbie’s Tavern at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 and the lively Canteen on N. Main Street in Breck. Along with a great menu, “The Boot” will feature an après ski theme that pays homage to the early days of skiing. So, next time you’re in town, we hope to bump into you there at lunch, Happy Hour or dinner. We believe all owners will truly enjoy this new amenity at GTL, not to mention the ten-percent discount!

Meanwhile, we wish each of you a happy and merry holiday season filled with lots of joy and the love of your family and friends.

With gratitude to you for being a part of the BGV family,

Mike and Mike
