It’s been a quiet start to the new year around Breckenridge. Maybe the negative degree temperatures even before wind chill have contributed to that. It has been miserably cold the past couple of days, but it seems to finally be warming up
We had an incredible start to the ski season- we were graced with powder day after powder day until the week before Christmas. It has tapered off a bit recently and the storms have been favoring the southern part of the state as they normally do early season, but we’re hoping for a change in the jet stream that will bring us some big storms from San Francsico. Last night six inches hit us and hopefully more is coming in the next couple of days.

In other news, we’ve hired two new employees who now feel like a part of the family.
When Peter walked in to pick up an application we chatted for a little while and he turned out to be a mini Greg. He has spent his youth and college days playing soccer and his summer whitewater rafting
. If there are two things Greg loves in life, it’s soccer and rafting. Peter was an instant in.

Historically we are a one girl in each store type of business, and you know, I kind of like it. But this year Greg met Lindsey and she was in. Next door at the Main Street Outlet we hired two girls also- it’s pretty great to have more female energy around the company.

Our company grew this summer as we partnered with Columbia Sportswear
and opened the Columbia Breckenridge
store, located at 108 S Main, across the street from Downstairs at Eric’s
. We lost one of our own to the Columbia store. Brett moved down to co-manage the shop with Timmy from the Outlet. It was a great move for him and a great loss for us. We miss him everyday. Luckily he still stops in for a quick chat most days. Since we opened Columbia ourholiday party
grew to the point that we almost didn’t fit in front of the fireplace for our annual picture.
The party was just as good as last year’s- the food was incredible, the gifts were hilarious and it’s always wonderful to spend the time hanging out together outside of work. This year after the party we took over The Motherloaded Tavern
for a couple of hours and then we had the urge to dance, so we made our way to Liquid Lounge
, where we got some pretty sweet pics.
Love this one of Jeff
This has been a pretty great season so far- lots of snow (soon we will be thanking Ullr
for his generosity), great new hires, and a wonderful holiday season.
