Last Friday Breckenridge Grand Vacations blew single-day sales records out of the water selling more than $7.1 million in vacation ownerships at the Grand Colorado on Peak 8.
According to Rob Millisor, one of the developers/owners of Breckenridge Grand Vacations, The Grand Colorado is the company’s most luxurious resort to date and also is the most exclusive timeshare resort in the Rocky Mountains. Founded in 1984, BGV has launched and developed three other award-winning properties — Gold Point Resort, Grand Timber Lodge and the Grand Lodge on Peak 7. Their fourth Breckenridge resort, the Grand Colorado on Peak 8, will open its doors in the summer of 2016 with phase one. “We believe we not only beat our own single-day sales record but may also have set the record in the Industry for the highest single-day sales at an independent, single-site timeshare resort,” added Millisor.
“In the past 25 years, we’ve earned our reputation as a leader in the resort development industry,” says Mike Dudick, one of the other two Developers at BGV. “We’re proud that we’ve grown as a company and as a family of resorts with more than 20,000 owners who we consider part of our family.”
The success of the initial sales day of the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 was based completely on sales to existing owners at BGV’s other resorts. Now, sales are open to the public.
“We’re proud that our owners believe in us and our resorts. They’re loyal to the community of Breckenridge and to our company, Breckenridge Grand Vacations, and know that they’re buying into one of the best locations and vacation experiences in Breck at one of the most affordable prices,” Dudick adds.
Construction began in 2013 and the property is expected to open its doors in 2016. Situated at the base of Breckenridge’s world-class mountain on Peak 8, the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 is a ski-in, ski-out property located directly adjacent to multiple express chair lifts and the “Breck Connect” gondola that connects the Town to the ski slopes of Peaks 7 and 8.
Designers from TRH (The Ranch House) in Boulder, Colo. selected natural textures, decorations and furniture with a Mountain Modern twist for the 59 residences that range from suites to 4-bedroom residences.
“It’s a new era of slopeside resort ownership,” says Millisor. “You don’t find these types of amenities at these prices anywhere else. The Grand Colorado will be the pinnacle resort within our resort family.”
The amenities planned include an indoor and outdoor aquatics area with 2 pools, 4 hot tubs, outdoor fireplaces and grills, a family fun center, three private theaters, a rooftop garden and also a lobby bar.
“You can’t get closer to the ski slopes and the chairlifts than this,” says Ginny Vietti, VP of Marketing for BGV. “The views of the ski slopes and the halfpipe will be unparalleled in Breckenridge. You’ll have a front row view.” In addition, public areas will offer skiers and guests the opportunity to enjoy the new decks, the Bergenhof Tavern and other facilities at the resort like the Infinity Spa.
