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.

Don’t forget the cowbells!!!! Tomorrow, August 20 and Friday, August 21, are big days here in Breckenridge when the men’s and women’s USA Pro Challenge rolls through town. Here’s a link to check out the routes and road closures in and around town http://www.gobreck.com/events/usa-pro-cycling-challenge.
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.
