With 5 courses to choose from, you’re bound to find your new favorite place to play. Come stay at our conveniently located Breckenridge hotel, take advantage of our short season and play today! At or above 9,000 ft. the air is thin and the ball travels further - over 10% further in fact (feet above sea level x .00116)!  The ball also stays straighter due to the air being less dense.

There’s Got to Be Something Magical about This Four O’Clock Hour

  • August 9, 2016

Have you ever heard of Mirabilis Jalapa? No? Me either. Perhaps maybe you have heard of them by their more popular name, “Four O’Clocks?” Still no? It’s okay, but there has got to be something magical about this four o’clock hour for a South American flower to take on this moniker, and for a Breckenridge ski run (and road) to epitomize it as well. Hold on, back to the flower for a minute. These “Four O’Clocks” are aptly named this because the flowers open in the late afternoon and stay open until morning. This Marvel of Peru pretty much does the opposite of what skiers on Peak...

Metanoia

  • January 28, 2016

My favorite event in Breck is the International Snow Sculpting Championships. Because my birthday falls during the building week or viewing week each year, watching the volunteers create the blocks of snow, seeing the sculptors’ visions emerge and checking out the finished sculptures have been part of my annual celebration for nearly two decades. As one of the lodging sponsors for this event, it’s quite a treat to get to meet the teams and to follow their progress as they create art from snow! This year we are hosting one the teams from Germany. Their sculpture, Metanoia, is guaranteed...
