Don’t get us wrong; we love summer in Breck. But, there comes a point around mid-August when we start counting down the days to ski season. That’s when we adore living in Summit County the most.
We like waking up early to grab a breakfast burrito at The Crown before spending a quiet morning carving fresh tracks on Peak 9. Not to mention, it’s always magical to see Breck transform into a sparkling, winter wonderland at the Lighting of Breckenridge and Race of the Santas. The fun doesn’t stop after the holidays; Ullr Fest is a blast, too!
If you plan to spend a lot of time in Summit County this winter (let’s be honest – you do), it might be time to consider finding a ski rental in Breck. There are so many perks to having your own place to call “home” in Summit County, even if only for the season.
For one, not having to sit in Sunday traffic on I-70 is worth the investment in and of itself. With a seasonal rental, you can come and go as you please – which usually means driving straight to work on Monday mornings. And, you can keep the kitchen stocked with your favorite wine and snacks for snowy nights at home. Of course, nothing beats the feeling of having a familiar bed to snuggle into after a long day on the mountain.
