NWSCC Annual Ski Week - Breckenridge, Colorado  January 28 – February 4, 2017
[ Nine BSC members attended]
Rod Robinson led the Northwest Ski Council's annual ski week at Breckenridge, Colorado this year.  BSC members were invited to join the group.

Breckenridge is a destination ski resort with the perfect blend of everything you could want on a ski vacation: world-class skiing for all levels, a fun nightlife scene, great restaurants, and a historic downtown.  Breckenridge is a former mining town with Victorian architecture.  It will be the combination of the exhilarating on-mountain skiing, the historic town activities and the organized group experiences that will make this an exciting and memorable trip.   

Breckenridge has five interconnected peaks, which offer an amazing variety of skiing for all skill levels. Peak 10 offers steep runs and challenging moguls. Peak 9 is best for beginners. Situated in the heart of the resort, Peak 8 is packed with trails for all levels. The upper part of Peak 8 is composed of advanced and expert terrain, and is served by the highest lift in North America. Intermediate skiers will feel at home on Peak 7’s blue runs.  Peak 6 is also geared primarily to intermediate skiers, but also includes a large amount of advanced terrain and chutes.  

We stayed at a stone-and-timber condominium lodge situated in a beautiful wooded area along a ski run. The lodging is ski-in, with only a short walk to the base gondola in town that goes to Peaks 7 & 8.

Lodging was at the Mountain Thunder Lodge.  The lodge offered fully-equipped condos, fireplaces, wireless internet access, outdoor pool and hot tubs, ski lockers, exercise facility, and one parking spot per condo.  Free town shuttle.     

The Basic Package price of $1,005 (based on double occupancy) included:

7 nights lodging (double occupancy per bedroom)

BEND SKI CLUB Big White/Silver Star Canada Ski Week; Tentatively in mid January, 2018

​The club is gathering interest in a potential ski trip of our very own to two ski areas in one trip next year.  In the planning/wishing stages at the moment. Enough interest and we can continue planning and get specifics.  Looks like a potentially great deal, including airfare from Portland, all lodging transportations, 7 nights lodging, 6 day ski lift pass, and all applicable taxes for roughly $1400/per person, D.O.  Contact PJ at pjsmeetups@gmail.com for additional information.
