Breck or other Summit County Condo Recommendations/Avoidances...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Heading out to Summit County Feb 5-12, seems like a reasonable "low week" and there are some deals to be had on lodging. I've not been in over 15 years and it will be a first time visit for my ski bud. Definitely plan to hit 5-6 of the major mountains in a 7 day trip, but at the same time am thinking being in or very close to Breck for nightlife and other stuff is the way to go.

 

Any particular recommendations to definitely consider or places to avoid in terms of the condos and townhouses in and around Breck?

 

We like a little space so 2BR/2BA is ideal, typical condo amenities...  ski in-out at Breck not a big deal since we'd only be there a day or two anyway, so maybe something closer to downtown (walkable, ideally) works better since we'll be driving to Vail, Keystone, Copper, A-Basin, etc. the other days.  Looks like the "Four O'Clock" area is well suited for that.  

 

Thanks in advance for any experienced insight...   Also, would love to know who's got the best boot shop out in that part of the world?

 

Many thanks & Happy Ski Year 2014  :)

I asked the same kind of question about that town (Breck) for over a week and no-one gave me any real lead.  They must all be out skiing.

So if your planning on hitting up lots of resorts I would recommend on staying on Frisco and getting a place that's on the bus line. The buses run hourly into Breck and the last bus back leaves at 1:30 am. You'll save money and drive time. Frisco also has a couple decent bars and restaurants if you guys decide to go for a short night.

You're going to 5 mountains in 7 days? That's a lot of jumping around. Which ones you hitting up beyond Breck? I'd certainly think of staying in Frisco/Dillon area, rather than driving in/out of Breck each day. 

 

The 4 O'Clock area is a ski in (not really ski out). So you'll likely pay a premium. The most expensive places seem to be within walking distance of Main St, for the level of place you are looking for. I've been looking at a lot of the same stuff for the end of the month. Nothing is exactly cheap out there, but if you're staying a full week might well find a better deal in the $1500 range.

Thanks, yes that's exactly the price range I'm seeing although through Breck Central Reservations they have a 30% off 7 nights deal with some nice condos highly discounted as long as we're out by 2/13. Two properties that look to be particularly interesting are "The Corral" and "Tyra IV Lodge", primarily because they have more hotel-like amenities (small gym, in addition to just a shared hot tub area) and seem to be better maintained than some of the older condo units around.  Easy walk to Main St. and good parking / gear storage.

 

We always invest in the rental vehicle in order to be own schedule and not have to worry about public transit issues. The peace of mind is worth it in the long run, and in my younger days I certainly crashed many a time at the cheapest place I could find around Dillon/Silverthorne when we'd make the drive out from Kansas City just to squeeze in as much skiing as possible in a weekend.... these days having an easy walk to apres' options is much appreciated :)

 

Definitely plan to revisit my old stomping grounds of A-Basin, Breck, Copper, and Keystone and a "day trip" to Vail, for sure. Most of our ski days are weekdays and on a Saturday, I'd choose the most far-flung location to avoid crowds... and let the snow guide us...
