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.
Breckenridge is celebrating 24 years of the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Competition and Pine Ridge is located only a half block from this amazing free event!
January 21-25 – Sculpting Week. Artists are preparing to stay up all night to do detail work and the atmosphere is exciting. Spend a night or two with us and catch the whole weekend. You won’t regret seeing the sculptures evolve.
January 25 – February 2 – Viewing Week. The artists are done sculpting but the sculptures are here for your viewing pleasure. Weather permitting the sculptures will stay up until the night of February 3 until approximately 10:00 pm at which time they will disappear under the cover of darkness as magically as they appeared.
The FIS Freestyle World Cup, in conjunction with America’s top tour for freeskiing and snowboarding, the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix, is bringing World Cup halfpipe and slopestyle action to Breckenridge Ski Resort on Jan. 8-12. The fourth halfpipe and third slopestyle stop on the 2013-14 FIS Freestyle World Cup tour will be one of the last events held within the qualifying period for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
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.
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.
