Breckenridge Escape Giveaway 2023

I will forever be grateful for the beautiful memories made thanks to winning this amazing sweepstakes. We loved our one-bedroom residence at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7. We ate at the Sevens Restaurant, and the kids and I enjoyed the Waffle Bar one morning for breakfast, where we met an employee who was from where we live in South Florida. This vacation was my kids’ first time seeing snow, and it even snowed at some point each day that we were there. We started our first full day there with a dog sledding tour at Good Times Adventures. The next day, we took the free shuttle to Main Street to shop, eat, and sightsee. On our last full day there we were fortunate enough to take the free shuttle to see the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships. The sculptures blew us away. We then took the shuttle back to Peak 7 and went on our first-ever gondola ride to Peak 8, to enjoy a meal at a restaurant there. The views throughout our vacation were breathtaking. Thank you for making our winter wonderland vacation happen!

We had a BLAST!!! Enjoyed our stay. The staff at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 were very friendly and helpful. Loved seeing all the skiers on the mountain. Absolutely beautiful views all around. The Gondola ride was awesome. I would recommend that anyone who stays here will have an awesome time. Would love to go back someday. Thank you all for your awesome hospitality.

Winter Wonder Getaway Winner

Wow! What an amazing experience, and for free – even better! I randomly just found this contest via Instagram and could not believe I won. The Grand Colorado Peak 8 location, amenities and staff were all above and beyond. The room was sensational, the staff was more than accommodating and so friendly, and the entire “resort” was beyond superb! 15/10 would recommend staying here if you can, whether you win a giveaway or save up for a fun vacation! Thank you all again for the great memories and amazing birthday weekend!

Grand Breckenridge Giveaway Winner

Our stay started off on Monday February 21, 2022. We were there through Sunday February 27 and loved every second we were there. Friendly greetings at the front desk for check-in. We went up to our room to find out it was super spacious and cozy. Robbie’s Tavern was our first dinner there, and met all of our needs after a very long travel day. We had our epic passes ready for Tuesday and Wednesday and the weather couldn’t have worked out any better not too cold and snow falling as we were riding. Being from back east I always wanted to go out west and snowboard so it was a bucket list trip. The gondola ride down to downtown Breckenridge was a first and definitely used it the rest of the week to get down into downtown for shops and restaurants which we couldn’t seem to get enough of. Only a longer stay would’ve allowed us to see a lot more but I have plans to return in the near future. Thank you for such an awesome opportunity to make my dream vacation come true.

Ski Home Getaway Winner

The Grand Colorado on Peak 8 Resort exceeded my expectations. From friendly/helpful staff to resort amenities, not to mention the convenience of being right on the slopes, was an amazing experience. We enjoyed our time at the Grand Colorado so much that we decided to become owners so we can come back every year with our families/friends. The resort is beautiful and with so many amenities to offer there’s something for everyone to enjoy and have a great vacation.

Stay Slopeside Winner

We could not have enjoyed our week at the Grand Lodge more!!! Here are some highlights from the week. We loved the condo and spent time making meals and eating in. We utilized the grotto and theatre room. And took full-advantage of the shuttle service! On Wednesday we celebrated our 3rd Wedding anniversary at Hearthstone per one of your concierge‘s recommendations. We shopped and enjoyed live music, local food and beers downtown. Katie at the lobby bar also made us some great margaritas and we enjoyed a rainy afternoon at the pool.

This was truly a dream come true! As I’ve mentioned, we are both teachers and being able to trot away for an entire week worry-free was a huge blessing for us!!! THANK YOU!!!!!
