Grand Colorado on Peak 8 Property Information

Letter from the General Manager

We are very excited to say that the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 (GC8) has been open for a few, very successful couple of months! The Grand Colorado on Peak 8 is extremely fortunate to have a wonderful staff that is committed to creating Grand vacations—they’re always looking for ways to make your time at the Grand Colorado unforgettable. If you have been an owner with us at our other resorts, you may see some familiar faces welcoming you to the Grand Colorado. Many of our staff members worked for Breckenridge Grand Vacations before joining the GC8 team, so we knew they would be a perfect fit for our newest resort.

We want to remind all owners about our Day Use parking policies. Please make sure to cancel all Day Use reservations or waitlist requests that you will not be able to use. If reservations go unused, owners will lose Day Use privileges for seven days, including any existing reservations. If you are awarded a Day Use parking spot from the waitlist and do not check-in, the same penalty will be applied.

As construction on future phases continues, the Operations team is focused on adding new features and amenities to some of the areas of the resort that opened in Phase 1.

  • The indoor kid’s pool play feature was installed in February and we are currently working on getting the big slide open for older kids and adults.
  • The upper deck of the stables lot will open shortly, allowing us to offer more Day Use parking for our owners.
  • In addition to these two larger updates, you will notice smaller additions throughout the resort, such as decorations in the pool, more signage to help you find your way around and clocks installed at various locations on property.

The entire GC8 staff is committed to making the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 the best ski-in/ski-out resort in Breckenridge, and, we hope, one of the nicest ski resorts you will ever experience. Please continue to share any ideas on how we can make your resort better. We appreciate everyone’s support and help in making GC8 better every day!

We look forward to seeing you during your next visit to the Grand Colorado.

Sincerely,

Jason Bretz
General Manager, Grand Colorado on Peak 8
