Winter Is Back, as Breckenridge Ski Resort today announced a week-long series of celebrations leading up to the start of the 2012-13 season. Breck opens for their 51st season for skiing and riding on Friday, November 9th this year, and starting Nov. 3rd, Breck will host a series of promotions designed to generate excitement leading up to Opening Day.
Front Rangers, keep your eyes out: starting on Saturday, Nov. 3, Breck will launch their “Find Ullr” promotion, in honor of this season, which marks the 50th anniversary of Breck’s “Ullr Fest” signature festival. Ullr, the Norse God of Snow, and a Breck local, will make appearances daily at signature landmarks in Denver each day of the week. The first fans that are able to find him each day will win prizes, including the chance to ride the first chair of the season with him. Clues will be posted to Ullr’s whereabouts daily via Breck’s social media outlets.
“WAKE UP BRECK”
The Opening Week celebrations continue, as on Thursday, Nov. 8, Breck will host the resort’s annual “Wake up Breck” promotion, giving out free coffee and exclusive commemorative Breck coffee mugs throughout the town of Breckenridge at local coffee shops. The giveaway begins at 7:00 a.m. and only continues while supplies last! Find the list of participating coffee shops at Breckenridge.com
OPENING DAY FESTIVITIES
Guests are invited to head to Peak 8 early on November 9th to celebrate Opening Day with a free sample of Breck’s new signature cinnamon rolls at 8:30 a.m. on the Ski Hill Grill Plaza, as well as a complimentary champagne toast courtesy of Moet & Chandon. Lifts will open at 9:00 a.m., and Ullr will ride the first chair of the season along with winners from the week-long “Find Ullr” promotion. Additional festivities will include a live broadcast from KSMT, T-Bar drink specials throughout the day, and a special tribute to honor Veterans as part of Veterans Weekend.
