Snowboarder enjoying fresh powder at Breckenridge Ski ResortIt’s almost here! We can almost taste it. It is the start of another Breckenridge ski season and with 2 winter storms already we are all anticipating a big ski and snowboard season! As always Breckenridge will be amped up and celebrating the opening of the 2012/2013 season with a party on Peak 8.


This year Breckenridge is doing something unique and cool with it’s Find Ullr promotion. Front Rangers, keep your eyes out: starting on Saturday, Nov. 3 keep your eyes peeled on the Front Range. Ullr, the Norse God of Snow, and a Breck local, will make appearances daily at signature landmarks in Denver each day of the week until Opening Day. The first fans that are able to find him each day will win prizes, including the chance to ride the first chair of the season with him. Breck will be posting clues to Ullr’s whereabouts daily and we will be sharing them on Best of Breckenridge.


Every year on the Thursday before opening day the bigwigs from the Breckenridge Ski Resort give out free coffee and exclusive commemorative Breck coffee mugs throughout the town of Breckenridge at local coffee shops. The giveaway begins at 7:00 a.m. and only continues while supplies last! Find the list of participating coffee shops at Do not wait! These cups go fast!!


This year its Cinnamon rolls. Mmmmm. Guests are invited to head to Peak 8 early on November 9th to celebrate Opening Day with a free sample of Breck’s new signature cinnamon rolls at 8:30 a.m. on the Ski Hill Grill Plaza, as well as a complimentary champagne toast courtesy of Moet & Chandon.

Lifts will open at 9:00 a.m., and Ullr will ride the first chair of the season along with winners from the week-long “Find Ullr” promotion. Additional festivities will include a live broadcast from KSMT, T-Bar drink specials throughout the day, and a special tribute to honor Veterans as part of Veterans Weekend.
