For a 2nd year in a row, SkyRun Breckenridge is excited to sponsor a team for the International Snow Sculpture Championship!  This is the 30th Anniversary of the contest and there are 16 international teams representing 12 different countries. SkyRun Breckenridge was honored to provide lodging to Team Argentina at Forest Haus 212.  The championship challenges teams to carve a single 20-ton, 12-foot-tall by 12-foot wide block fo snow without the use of power tools, internal support structures or colorants.   Teams started carving Monday January 20 at 11am, and must be completed by Friday January 24 at 9am, which is when judging will begin.  Mother Nature is being kind with blessed cold weather and light snow which gives the entire scene a whimsical feel as folks stroll through the RiverWalk parking lot to watch the tireless efforts and sculptures take shape.Cast your vote today for the People’s Choice Award at https://visit.gobreck.com/2020-peoples-choice-vote Anna and Heidi,...

Is the weeklong rental dead?

Is the weeklong rental dead?
No, but it might be on the endangered species list. It's easy to think that increasing your nightly minimums is a good strategy to boost revenue.
