Posted by toby | Thursday, January 29, 2015

Breckenridge Opening Day 2014
Posted by toby | Friday, October 31, 2014

Welcome back, to Breckenridge, and to the fluffy powder you have been missing since April.  With over 440 inches of snow last season, mouths are watering for Breckenridge opening day 2014, and the fantastic conditions and 3,000+ acres of world class terrain.  November 7th, 2014 is the big day, when the lifts begin to turn, the rope on the line drops, and the first chair will elevate a few lucky people to open the ski season.

Top three things waiting for you in Breckenridge this year- Opening Day 2014

  • Well, if you did not experience it last year, peak 6 is still one of the newest, biggest, and best developments at any resort.  After the successful inaugural season, peak 6 will continue to develop into a local’s favorite, and a visitors first. 
  • The Colorado chair on peak 8 is brand new!  Not to be outdone, peak 8 has a brand new, high capacity lift that is replacing the old Colorado chair.  This lift increases capacity up the mountain, meaning the lines will be shorter and move faster!
  • 30 years of snowboarding!  Yep, Breck has always been a favorite destination of snowboarding enthusiasts, and has always been a leader in promoting the sport.  30 years ago, Breckenridge welcomed a brand new sport, on brand new equipment, and helped build an industry.  30 years later, our dedication to the sport can be witnessed in our massive half pipe, terrain parks, and as a year over year host of the Dew Tour.

Goodbye Breckenridge Ski Season 2013-2014
Posted by toby | Wednesday, April 23, 2014

This is it, Breckenridge ski season 13/14 is coming to a close this weekend, and we watch it go with both the sadness of packing up our sticks, and the excitement of breaking out the shorts.  Spring in Breckenridge is an interesting mix of warm sunny days, and wet heavy snow storms.  Every spring brings the mystery of what type summer we will get.  Will it snow until June, and create a short summer; or will the skies offer a heaping portion of sunny blues, and create a never ending summer playground? 

All we know for sure is that come Sunday, when the last run has been skied, we will all be looking for the mystery to unfold, and the clouds to roll back, opening up permission to wear flip flops, and eat an ice cream by the river. 

The snow that will create that river is now melting, running down and through the bedrock of this fantastic town.  By the numbers of our winter snow totals below, water levels should be consistent and full this summer, bringing to life the abundant nature and activities that we all look forward to enjoying.

3 things to know as winter leaves, and summer comes home-

  1. Sure, May and early June are muddy, but they are six of the most relaxing weeks in Breckenridge.  Visitors can really relax, and locals are able to take a breath, and enjoy the town we call home.
  2. Wildlife come to life in May- creatures great and small, along with their human counterparts, begin to creep out into the forest, and frolic in the summery climate.  Be careful of bears!
  3. Breckenridge is known for our ski area, but summer is when you need to be here.  Forget the beach, come rafting, hiking, camping, wheeling, riding, and biking in our never ending playground this summer.

First snow in Breckenridge, small but something, get ready!
Posted by toby | Saturday, September 17, 2011
First snow of 2011/2012 ski season in Breckenridge. Won;t get too excited, too small to stick and too warm outside still. A balmy 45 today for Oktoberfest. These snows don't get us where we need to be, but simply remind us all that the season is just a couple of months away, time to get ready!

Breckenridge snowfall total 2011
Posted by toby | Saturday, May 7, 2011
The Breckenridge snowfall total for 2011 was, in a word, huge! After 6 months of blustery storms, white outs, slick roads, pass closures, icy windshields, and a glorious amount of fresh powder days in Breck, our season is finally over. An average Breckenridge snowfall total is around 300 inches in most years, and that assures quality ski conditions for the entire season. This year, well.... it was better. Breckenridge Snowfall total for 2011 (drumroll).... 519 inches!

Breckenridge snow reportAnother day, another foot, or two, and I don't think it is over yet.  Actually, looking outside I can confirm it is not near letting up.   Looks like the mountain will be full tomorrow, of snow, not people.  Currently the base depth mid mountain in Breck is 63 inches, I expect that to top 75 tomorrow, and it will be dumping all this week. To date, we have accumulated 236 inches of snow in breck, 255 by tomorrow, which is way ahead of average, and most other ski areas! This picture is what my driveway looked like at 7:30 tonight when I got home, I hate to shovel, but love to slide around on this stuff!

Gotta love it!  Breckenridge is open,not a little, but a lot!  Even part of he bowl is open if you want to hike the t-bar.  I was up there today (as you can see in the pics) and it was glorious.  It is the perfect opening day, 30 degrees, sunny, 34 inches at mid mountain, snow guns blowing, and every bit of the Breckenridge mountain charm in full effect. Yes, those are people on the lift, ascending vertically to ski Breckenridge Resort for opening day 2010-2011.  I would have loved to have joined in, but I had to get back to the office and send this picture out!

We had 4 beautiful weeks starting mid February. NO snow, sunny days, 40-50 degrees every day, it was almost like summer. However it was peak ski season, and many of us here were bummed. The thought of packing up skis and unpacking shorts had crossed my mind. But alas, Ullr always comes through in the clutch. We have had 34 Inches of snow in the last week, 3 feet, 5 inches a day, and it has stayed. The snow has fallen, temperatures have dropped, and the skiing is great. Many of you may have given up on this season, like I had, but trust me, the snow is beautiful and we are scheduled to get more during this week. Don't delay, reserve your Breckenridge lodging today.

Current conditions and snow accumulation- Breckenridge ski area Mid mountain base- 52 inches Total snowfall- 184 inches 100% of 2,378 rideable acres open Vail ski area Mid mountain base- 57 inches Total snowfall- 286 inches 100% of 5,289 skiable acres is open Heavenly ski area Mid mountain base- 64 inches Total snowfall- 206 rideable inches 98% open Keystone ski area Mid mountain base- 42 inches Total snowfall- 130 inches 100% open Beaver Creek Ski area Mid mountain base- 59 inches Total snowfall- 266 inches 100% open When looking at these reports pay attention to the mid mountain statistic, it is not what they had, it is what they have. A higher mid mountain base means less chance of a core shot on your skis or board. Also, the more snow accumulation that a resort has, and the more that has melted, the more icy the on mountain conditions. In Breckenridge we are looking at a fairly large storm that will blow through over the next several days, hopefully dumping 12 or more inches of new snow.
