Celebrate 55 Years of Ullr Fest In Breckenridge, Colorado!It all started back in January of 1963 when a small group of Breckenridge locals were lounging around, enthusiastically reliving their EPIC powder day and arguing over whose run down the mountain was the MOST insane that day. This tight-knit crew of mountain dwelling ski-techs and snowplow drivers didn’t know it at the time, but this night would inspire a tradition that would become an annual highlight of the Breckenridge ski season.As the night progressed, the conversation turned to crazy storms that had been pounding Breckenridge with endless amounts of that glorious Rocky Mountain “Champagne Powder”. The decision was made that night to pay tribute, give thanks and celebrate Ullr, the legendary Norse God of Snow!Who is Ullr? And how do you pronounce it?

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. There is often an inverse relationship between minimums, occupancy and revenue. A solid understanding of the rental market in your area is key to finding the right balance between nightly minimums that will actually drive increased occupancy and minimums that will kill your reservations. I’ve increased my minimums. Where have all my rentals gone? Owners are often surprised when I tell them that the average stay in Breckenridge, Colorado is around 3.5 nights. This sounds low, but it’s actually within trends that we are seeing nationally.  There are some areas of the US that still thrive in the weekly rental market. One market that comes to mind is the Outer Banks In North Carolina. If you’ve ever rented a beach house there, you know that...
