The time has arrived to get your winter gear tunes, get your new jackets and pants and do your snow dances, because opening day of the Breckenridge Ski Resort is right around the corner. Breckenridge Ski Resort is set to open Nov. 9 at 9 a.m. sharp. We’re so excited that Breckenridge has planned a week-long series of celebrations leading up to the start of the 2012-13 season.

Look for Ullr throughout Denver Nov. 3-4


Front Rangers: Need an excuse to get out of work for opening day of the Breckenridge Ski Resort? Keep your eyes peeled: Starting Saturday, Nov. 3, Breckenridge will launch its “Find Ullr” promotion, in honor of  the 50th anniversary of Breck’s “Ullr Fest” signature festival. Ullr, the Norse, God of snow, and one of our own, will make appearances daily at signature landmarks in Denver each day of the week. The first fans who are able to find him each day will win prizes, including the chance to ride the first chair of the season with Ullr himself. Be sure to follow Breckenridge’s social media outlets for clues to Ullr’s whereabouts. Follow us on Instagram and Twitter @GoBreck and #Ullr50.


Free coffee? You got it, as the opening week celebrations continue Thursday, Nov. 8. Breckenridge will host the resort’s 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 early bird gets the worm, the giveaway begins at 7 a.m. and only continues while supplies last.

There is nothing better than starting out the day with Breck’s signature cinnamon roll, and that is one of the treats you can expect on opening day 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 a.m., and Ullr will ride the first chair of the season, along with winners from the week-long “Find Ullr” promotion. Join KSMT for an all-day live broadcast and the T-Bar for drink specials and a special tribute to honor Veterans as part of Veterans Weekend. Make sure you head to Main Street for some great food and shopping to kick off the 12/13 winter season.

Also, win not one, but two, Epic Passes for life. Anyone who purchases an Epic Pass for the 2012-13 ski season by Nov. 2, 2012, is automatically entered to win two Epic Passes for life. Visit Snow.com for official promotion rules. For lodging information visit GoBreck for great deals!
