Ski and Ride Season Update 

Fall is upon us in Breckenridge. Mornings have a little chill and aspen leaves are turning from green to gold. Soon, we’ll be getting our skis and snowboards tuned as we anticipate resort openings. We won’t have to wait very long. Conditions permitting, Breckenridge Ski Resort plans to open on November 8 and keep some terrain open through Memorial Day. That’s an even 200 days of skiing and riding!

Although Breck is our favorite resort, and your vacation home, we know many of you enjoy visiting other nearby ski areas. There’s a lot to look forward to this season. With the help of enhanced snowmaking, Keystone is aiming for an October opening, joining the “first to turn” competition with A-Basin and Loveland. Also thanks to snowmaking improvements, Vail and Beaver Creek expect to have terrain open by Thanksgiving. Once the snow gets a little deeper, Copper Mountain will debut a new lift that provides access to above-timberline expert terrain on Tucker Mountain.

Some of the most exciting news this season is about ski passes. The array of Epic Pass options from Vail Resorts is mind-boggling, including new Epic for Everyone day passes for those who don’t need a season pass. And now that Vail has acquired Peak Resorts, your friends and family in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Missouri have Epic Pass access to join you in Breckenridge. They might even want to become BGV owners! Another season pass option is the Ikon Pass, which now includes access to Copper Mountain and A-Basin. There’s also the Mountain Collective pass, which allows two days at 18 different resorts around the world, including several in the Rocky Mountains.

You get the best value by choosing a ski pass that meets your needs. Of course, that’s also true of gear rentals. We’re working hard to make sure our owners get Grand deals. More details soon!

Whether you are a double black diamond expert, or an aficionado of après around the fireplace, there are a lot of reasons to get excited about winter in the high country. Wherever your snowy mountain adventures take you, your BGV family will be ready to welcome you home with warmth in our hearts and smiles on our faces.
