For the fifth year, Breckenridge Grand Vacations employees and departments stepped up to support our community during the holidays by supporting the Family & Intercultural Resource Center’s (FIRC) Adopt an Angel program and the community Adopt a Family program through Mountain Mentors and Summit County Department of Human Services.
Now in its 26th year, the Adopt an Angel program served 430 children from 200 families in 2018. The Silverthorne Pavilion was transformed into a toy and clothing factory where thousands of gifts were given to pre-approved families and children. Santa’s helpers were on hand to spread cheer and help families select and gift wrap their gifts.
The Adopt a Family program matches BGV departments and individuals with identified families in the community needing some extra support during the holidays. Eighteen departments and individuals provided more than 200 gifts and grocery store gift cards to fifteen families with 64 family members this year. Additionally, 11 gifts were donated to the Adopt an Angel program.
Breckenridge Grand Vacations takes great pride in supporting these programs and helping to spread holiday cheer by putting smiles on the faces of our local families. We wish all our colleagues, friends and families a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019!
Established in 1993, the Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) has been entertaining audiences for more than 25 years. Originally founded to raise funds for the Lake Dillon Amphitheatre and produce a free summer concert series; the organization expanded to include a chamber concert series, a youth educational series and an amateur, seasonal community theatre that now operates as a successful year-round professional, regional theatre company. Originally housed in a historic structure built in 1899 that once served as the Dillon Town Hall, the Theatre Company is now housed in the Silverthorne Performing Arts Center, a state-of-the-art, the multi-stage facility that was created to further catalyze a vibrant downtown Silverthorne through arts and culture offerings. In addition to performances, the Center is home to creative classes such as theatre studies, music lessons, dance and art classes. Located at 460 Blue River Parkway, the Center also houses rotating art exhibits featuring a variety of mediums from talented artists across Colorado.

New Year, New You. That’s how it goes, right? For millions of Americans across the United States, the magical switch gets flipped when the calendar changes from December 31st to January 1st, initiating a wave of resolutions to be healthy, kind, productive, adventurous – you name it. Perhaps this sounds familiar? How often have you made a resolution to eat your greens and drink more water? Or maybe you’ve promised to take a family vacation, only to find yourself, months later, unable to find time to wiggle that getaway in. It’s also quite possible that you’re the type of person that doesn’t bother to even make a resolution in the first place, because they never last anyway. Did we hit that one on the nail? No matter what category you might fall into, we have a suggestion for you. Make a resolution to take care of your mind, your body, and your soul. You’re thinking, “How can I do that?” Well, we’re so glad you asked! The first step is to take advantage of all Breckenridge has to offer. Second, get your pen and paper ready to scribble some notes on how to take care of your mind, body and soul in 2019.
Don’t ski? Don’t fear! Breckenridge is a town with activities for the intensely active, those that want to lay horizontal all day, and everyone in-between. Miles of trails that wind through and around Breckenridge turn into snow-covered adventure tracks in the winter, beckoning snowshoers of all levels to strap on those funny looking things and trek through a winter wonderland.
Elevate your senses and your spirit at 10,000 feet on Bald Mountain (“Baldy”) or head to French Gulch and Sallie Barber Mine Trail for something a little lower. Relax your mind, challenge your body, and rejuvenate your soul with a snowshoe amongst the pines. Breathe deep, take in the moment and take a photo (literal or mental).
Snowshoeing is the perfect activity to crush a New Year’s resolution of simply just taking better care of you. Elevate yourself and your senses on an experience in Breckenridge you won’t soon forget!
GET A MASSAGE
When it comes to the ultimate sensory and relaxation experience, we’re going to make the call that massages are hard to beat.
Life is too short to not treat yourself every once in a while. If you took our advice to snowshoe as well, there might be a sore muscle or two you didn’t realize existed that needs some attention!
Bask in ultimate luxury at one of our favorite massage spots: Soothe Spa at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 or Infinity Spa at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8.
It might go without saying that hitting the slopes is incredible for your mind, body and soul. But, sometimes it’s worth it to state the obvious. Have you ever experienced a morning of fresh powder, your skis or board effortlessly gliding atop the snow? If it’s been a while since you hit the slopes, at first you might be tense; but as your muscle memory kicks in, your mind and body relax, allowing you to bask in this moment and count the blessings that Breckenridge provides.
Or, could it be a chairlift ride with your closest friends or dearly loved ones filling your soul to the brim with joy?
So, will you hit the slopes this year? We hope so!
GO EAT (AT ONE OF 80+ RESTAURANTS AND BARS)
Okay, so if your New Year’s Resolution is to eat healthier, you might think this suggestion is counterintuitive. We’re here to assure you that it is possible to go out to eat and enjoy yourself, all while taking care of your mind, body, and soul.
How so? For starters, the dining options are abundant throughout Breckenridge. Over eighty, to be exact! Worried about only bar and grille food? Don’t fret – kale salads and vegan pizzas are just a few waist-friendly options to choose from. (I’d suggest throwing in a few options for people, like Blue River or Piante.)
Now that we’ve covered how eating out can actually be good for your body, what about your mind and your soul? Trying new restaurants expands your horizons and broadens your palate – just think about the sensory overload in your mind when you try a new dish for the first time. Or the belly laughs that will inevitably ensue as you crack jokes with your best pals. This is truly the best medicine for your soul.
So what will it be? All of the above? How will you decide to take care of your mind, body, and soul in 2019? Let us know in the comments below!
