November 8 marked the opening day for Breckenridge’s ski season. In a previous post we mentioned we’d be featuring a few ski resorts for you to consider in planning your ski trip. This time it’s Grand Timber Lodge, the perfect ski resort in the perfect ski area, Breckenridge, Colorado.

What’s Perfect About Grand Timber Lodge?

1. Location

The lodge sits rights in the middle of Peaks 8 and 9 of the Breckenridge Ski Resort, one of the top ski locations in the world. It’s easy to ski-in and ski-out of the lodge to all the peaks and trails. In fact, all you have to do to get to Peak 8 is walk down the driveway of the resort, cross the street, step into your bindings, and ski a short distance down to the Snowflake chairlift. The lodge is also a short drive or walk to historical downtown Breckenridge with its abundance of shops, restaurants, and museums.

2. Accommodations

Grand Timber Lodge offers a variety of accommodations. Choices range from a studio that sleeps up to four people, to a suite that sleeps up to ten. The one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums offer all the comforts of home. The fully equipped gourmet kitchens with complete dining service for 10 make it easy to entertain friends and family.  After a day on the slopes, the jetted tubs in the bathrooms are so nice to ease into!  All condominiums have a private deck, gas fireplace, and full-size washer and dryer.

3. Amenities

Grand Timber Lodge features the largest amenities package in Breckenridge. Besides the ski-in and ski-out convenience, there are many additional services and activities offered at the resort:
