12/15/2015 | By Summit Vacations

It’s the holiday season, and where best to spend it than in a frosty winter wonderland? Better yet, why not stay in a beautiful Summit Vacation managed rental while you’re at it?

When you bring yourself and loved ones to Breckenridge, Colorado this holiday season, be prepared for a magical Christmas and/or Hanukah, and an extravagant New Year’s Eve. The powder will be fresh, spirits bright and old Saint Nick will even make an appearance or two!

Winter 2015 Event’s

December at Breckenridge started off just right this year, putting everyone in the Christmas cheer. Starting with our annual holiday craft market and town lighting, followed by our quirky traditional “Race of the Santa’s,” everyone was already feeling ‘holly and jolly.’ Next on the schedule was the conclusion of the Hartford Ski Spectacular and our fabulous Winter Ice Show called “Around the World”, both which were great successes.

Most recently, we were visited by the much anticipated and hugely successful 2015 Winter Dew Tour, where Shaun White slayed it in the men’s snowboard superpipe and Jiayu Liu in the Women’s, along with many other fantastic athletes. Other event’s included snowboard slopestyle, streetstyle, freeski superpipe, freeski slopestyle, and freeski streetstyle.

Mid-month in December is when organized sporting events around town tend to slow down, and the partying and hob knobbing picks up. Everyone is in the celebratory mood and the slopes are buzzing. There’s nothing quite like spending the holidays in a quaint mountain town during this jolly season. If you are dreaming of a white Christmas, then look no further. Breckenridge is the solution!
