Get ready Colorado skiers and snowboarders! Breck opens in FOUR days, on November 9, 2012 at 9:00am!

Winter has returned and the momentum is building towards Breckenridge Ski Resort’s Opening Day! Breck opens for their 51st season for skiing and riding on Peak 8. 

To get you pumped up and ready to shred, Breck has already began a series of promotions designed to generate excitement leading up to Friday’s Opening Day, including:


Front Rangers, keep your eyes peeled: Breck has launched their “Find Ullr” promotion, in honor of this season, which marks the 50th anniversary of Breck’s “Ullr Fest” signature festival. Ullr, the mythical Norse God of Snow, and Breck local, is making daily appearances at signature landmarks and events in the Front Range each day this week. The first fans that are able to locate him each day will win prizes, including the chance to ride the first chair of the season with him. Clues are being posted to Ullr’s whereabouts daily via Breck’s social media outlets.


Breck’s Opening Week celebrations continue this Thursday, November 8 as Breck hosts the resort’s 10th annual “Wake Up Breck” promotion, giving out FREE coffee and exclusive commemorative Breck coffee mugs throughout the town of Breckenridge at local coffee shops. The giveaways begin at 7am, but ONLY continues while supplies last so act now! Find the list of participating coffee shops at


Guests are invited to head to Peak 8 early this Friday to celebrate Opening Day with a slew of activities planned. Kick start your day with a FREE sample of Breck’s new signature cinnamon rolls at 8:30am on the Ski Hill Grill Plaza, as well as an opportunity for a chance to win great Clicquot in Snow prizes, including bottles of Veuve Clicquot, which will be given away at 8:45am and 2pm. Ullr will ride the first chair of the season along with winners from the week-long “Find Ullr” promotion, and then lifts will open to the public at 9am! Additional festivities will include a live broadcast from KSMT, TBar drink specials throughout the day, DJ DC spinning everybody’s favorite tunes, and a special tribute to honor Veterans as part of Veterans Weekend. The Gold Runner Coaster will ALSO open, starting at 11am.


Gondola Parking Lots for the 2012/13 season will be priced at $5 during the week (Mon-Thurs), $12 on weekends (Fri-Sun) and during Peak days; the Beaver Run Lot will be $15 daily and $20 on Peak days. Great suggestion? Carpool and Save! Drive up all season long with four or more people in a vehicle for a $5 discount on parking at the Gondola Lots and Beaver Run Lot.
