Breckenridge is glorious right now because our signature Colorado gold has made its annual appearance-the trees have turned and are at their peak!  The days are warm and sunny, the nights are cool and although the leaves will eventually fade, we will be raising our glass to the Craft Spirits Festival  October 23-25 (Still on the Hill).  The festival lures Colorado’s finest distillers to town for an unrivaled tasting showcase of handcrafted spirits.  The Grand Tasting is at the Riverwalk Center (across the street from Pine Ridge) on Saturday October 24th–don’t miss this.aspens-up-new

We can’t wait for the Gathering at the Great Divide Art Festival September 5 through 7.  This is the 40th year for this incredible festival and  over 120 artists will be here to help us celebrate.

Soon after we’ll have to find our lederhosen when we welcome Oktoberfest September 11 and 12.  Did you know that the official Oktoberfest steins are made in Munich?  We love this weekend because not only is the festival awesome, but the Aspen trees have put on their array fall colors and it is a truly glorious time to be in the high country.

 

 

 

 

 

My family and I found the staff at Pine Ridge Condos to be friendly and very helpful. The cabin was very spacious and clean. Christy’s Sports shop is located in the same building and made it very convenient to rent our skis and snowboards. The one-block distance to downtown made it easy to walk to the restaurants and shops without having to wait for a bus. Since Pine Ridge is a regular stop for the free bus service, it was very easy to get to the ski lifts from our condo. We will DEFINITELY stay here next year.

Stayed February 2012, traveled with family

This was our second stay with Pine Ridge condos. We stayed Labor day weekend 2010 & we just stayed Feb 12-16 2012 for a ski vacation. We stayed in 12D. It was very cozy, well decorated and clean! We parked our car when we arrived and didn’t get back in until we left. You can walk to the ski lift and you can easily walk to main street for dinner. There is some noise from people with boots on trying to get to and from their condos on wood floors but big deal we were part of the noise as well. We loved it and are already looking forward to next year hopefully in the same condo! One of our best & most memorable family vacations! Thanks Pine Ridge!

Room Tip: The higher up you are the less noise you will hear

The location of this condo is excellent for the price. It is ski in and you can walk (albeit uphill, about 10 minutes) or shuttle to Snowflake Lift. We had a car so cannot comment on access to town via foot or shuttle. We were able to park right in front of our room. The space was clean, well decorated and roomy, the fireplace a lovely addition. The shower in the main br was broken and repaired within hours after a phone call to the front desk. Staff was friendly and the dvd collection in the Office held great flicks. The hot tub was welcome after a long day on the slopes. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed February 2012

Condos are family owned and therefore fully equipment and comfortable. The location is excellent and very close to the lifts. A free shuttle runs from outside the reception to all the lifts for those who dont fancy a 5 min walk in boots! You can ski back every eve to the door of your condo. Brilliant trip, will stay again!
