Breckenridge Spring Lodging Deal 2014
Posted by toby | Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Summer special time is here!  June is one of our favorite months in Breckenridge for many reasons.  It provides the first legitimate taste of enduring summer weather, and the fear of an isolated snow storm can be surrendered.   The flowers are blooming, aspen trees are leafy, and people have fully adopted a summer wardrobe.  Activities are in full swing, rivers are at their peak, and the wilderness becomes a playground.  The gondola opens mid-month, and Breckenridge Kingdom Days kicks off with its official welcome to the summer season.

To make this time of year even more special and enticing to our valued guests, we are offering 20% off any 3 or more might stay in June.  As if you needed any more excuse to make a summer journey to Breckenridge, this great deal makes it just a little bit sweeter.

We hope to see you soon, in June!  Book your Breckenridge Vacation Rentals right now.

Breckenridge Spring Vacation Rental Blowout- 25% off everything, no blackout, no restrictions!
Posted by toby | Monday, March 24, 2014

Just a few weeks left of Breckenridge ski season 13/14, and just a few more chances to catch a few last runs before it is all gone.  Breckenridge Spring Fever 2014 is in full force with 40 events to close out the season, and accentuating your vacation with free concerts and warm temperatures.   

Spring in Breckenridge captures both the fantastic skiing our mountain offers, as well as giving us a taste of those fantastic summer months we are all craving right now.  Spring is the perfect bland of seasons, topped off with the biggest event schedule of the year, making it the right time for you to take one last break to Breck.

 The three biggest surprises about Breckenridge in Spring-

  1. You will never be able to dress appropriately.  On Friday it may be 45 and sunny, and Saturday it will be 10 and dumping snow.  Make sure you pack for both!
  2. You can ski in a bathing suit!  Actually, this has been a tradition since the 60’s, during the spring months.  However, before you go parading about in front of your creator in your speedo, check the weather.
  3. Groomers are your friend.  Almost every spring day, the hot sun gives way to a frozen evening, creating layers of ice on virtually every surface.  The mountain is no different, and our runs get extremely hard and icy in April during the morning, followed up with mushy and slushy afternoons.  The best skiing of the day is in the mornings, and on our endless groomed trails. 

Along with the acres of melting snow, our rates are melting away at the end of the season, making a vacation in Breckenridge even more affordable!  We are closing 13/14 with a fantastic Breckenridge vacation rental deal- Take 25% off any stay 3 nights or more, for the rest of the season!


Spring Break In Breckenridge
Posted by toby | Friday, March 14, 2014

Spring Break in Breckenridge- bring on the sun, snow, and savings!

Yesterday I was able to ski the mountain for a few hours.  It was sunny, 35, warm, and absolutely beautiful up there.  As I glided over the top layer of hard packed snow, and my skis found the soft powder below, I found myself cherishing the warmth on my face, and dreaming of the blissful and bright days of spring.

Alas, just weeks away, spring break starts around the country for many schools, and families.  Perhaps you are one of them, and perhaps you too desire to feel the warm spring sun on your face, and the soft spring snow beneath your skis?  Well, your time to book is now, and the season is a great one for you.  Currently, as of February, we have accumulated 300 inches of snow!  The base is deep, the coverage is vast, and the fun is nonstop.

Just for you, we have unleashed a special deal on spring break lodging equally as exciting as the snow totals. 

Take 20% off your spring break dates if you stay 5 nights or more, between 3/17/14 and ski area closing!

Terms, conditions, and blackouts apply. Not all units participating.

Cheapest places to get Breckenridge ski area lift tickets
Posted by toby | Sunday, March 15, 2009
Almost every guest that we have asks the same questions about their Breckenridge vacation. The most common is, "Where do we get lift tickets?". I will go a step further in this post and tell you where to get the cheap Breckenridge lift tickets.

1. If you are going to come out and ski more than 6 days in any season, buy a pass. You can pick up a pass for $500-$579 depending on which one you get.

  • Epic Pass- Unlimited access to Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Vail, Beaver Creek, and Heavenly.
  • Colorado Pass- Unlimited access to Breck, Keystone, A-basin, and 10 days at Vail/Beaver Creek and Heavenly.
  • Summit Pass- Unlimited access to Breck, A-Basin, and Keystone.

At $579, for 6 days, the daily price is $96.50. An on mountain ticket, during peak ski season is $92. So, if you ski 6 days or more it is well worth it.

*important note- the ski area quits issuing season passes at discounted rates sometime in December, so if you want one for under $1800 you have to get it early. If you wait too long the price actually goes up to $1,800.

2. Buy at King soopers/City Market on the way in to town-

  • Wheatridge (Denver Area) 3400 Youngfield St. Call (303)238-6486 for the latest pricing.
    Directions: When going West on I-70 toward the mountains take exit #264, which is the 32 Ave. / Youngfield St. Exit. Turn left onto 32nd Ave. then left again onto Youngfield Street. King Soopers will be in the Shopping Center on your right, next to Wal-Mart.
  • City Market in Dillon- 300 Dillon Ridge Rd Dillon, CO 80435. (970) 468-2363
  • City Market in Breck- 400 N Parkway Ave Breckenridge, CO 80424. (970) 453-0818

3. Purchase online through the ski area using their peaks program. Search for Breckenridge lift tickets online.

4. Purchase through a ski rental outfit. Places that just rent skis are given license by Vail to sell tickets at a discount.

  • Columbine ski rental in Dillon- 970-468-5166
  • Breeze Ski rental in Frisco- 970-668-9454

If you are not going to ski more than 6 times and you just want a few days I have some advice for you as well. You are only going to get a discount on a 3 or more day ticket. The mountain will charge a single day rate for less than three days. Also, on the 3 day or more tickets you can use them at Breck, Keystone, or A-Basin. If you buy the one or two day you can only use them at the mountain you buy them for.

Posted by toby | Saturday, March 7, 2009
Tips on finding the best lodging deal on a rental home or condo for your Breckenridge vacation
1. Be flexible- If you are able to fill a gap in the middle of the week, postpone your dates by a couple of days, shorten your stay, occupy a larger or smaller Breckenridge rental property than you initially wanted, or even go out of town a bit many lodging companies and owners alike will be able to discount their rates for your vacation rental condo. Being flexible allows a property manager to fit you into their calendar more effectively, meaning savings for you.
2. Stay longer- Shorter vacations are a symptom of the current economic situation, people cannot afford the week long Breckenridge retreat this year. 3 and sometimes 2 night stays over a weekend are becoming more commonplace this year. Because of that you may be able to get a good discount, or a free night if you are staying 5 nights or more. Because lodging companies are attempting to fill weeks and not just weekends they may offer more in savings for a longer stay.
3. Stay frequently- Guests who are able to come to Breckenridge and stay in a vacation home several times in the same season may be able to realize savings through a return guest discount. IF you are able to stay at the same vacation rental condo multiple times in a season, or over the year, a property manager will be more likely to pass on some good savings to you.
4. Be reasonable- Discounts are out there, but realize that people have to make money to consider your offer. Shopping around and low balling every nightly rate will get you nowhere and you are likely to waste a good amount of time and miss out on a good deal by doing so. While you are busy offering $80 a night for a room, someone else could be booking it for $110 a night and keeping you from finding the good deal you are looking for.
5. Wait!- Last minute deals are becoming increasingly easy to find. If you can wait until a week or two before your stay, the lodging you are looking for is ready to cut a deal to get a booking. Caution though, waiting can also backfire on your vacation plan. It is possible to wait too long, or during the wrong season and miss out on you lodging totally. 6. Take a tour- I hate to be an advocate of this, so this is not a recommendation, just info for you. Timeshare companies that are currently selling resort weeks love to give free lodging to people, if you take a tour and subject yourself to a hard sales pitch. This can work for many people who can work the system, but if you are a pushover you might end up leaving your vacation with a week every two years in Breckenridge. 7. Crash- Got a friend in Breckenridge, Florida, California? Pay them a much anticipated visit, I am sure they are more than happy to host a snoring mass on their sleeper sofa for a week. Drop in and surprise is recommended as advanced reservations are not usually taken.
