The Grand Colorado at Breck’s Peak 8 Is Unreal—If You Can Afford It

Fractional ownership—and limitless slopeside hot tubbing—is still available at the nearly complete Grand Colorado in Breckenridge. For a price, of course.

 •  

While countless upscale condos and mini mansions are springing up all over Breckenridge, the luxury amenities and ski-in-ski-out convenience of Peak 8’s newest property is tough to beat. Want a piece of it? That’ll only set you back about $30,000 at the low end.

The first of its three buildings opened in 2016, but the Grand Colorado’s finishing touches will be complete by the time summer rolls around. The property occupies a large part of Peak 8’s base area, and in addition to a great many other things—including a public restaurant, coffee shop, ski school, and ticket office—it’s comprised of 253 condos ranging from spacious studios to enormous four bedrooms.

Units are all sold by fractional ownership, available for as little as one week every other year to as many additional weeks as owners want or have the means to acquire. Price tags range from $30,000 for a smaller unit for a week during the spring or fall to well over $500,000 for a four-bedroom unit during high season. Owners, regardless of when their weeks are set, have unlimited access to the property’s amenities, including five (yes, five) private movie theaters, an escape room, ice rink, rooftop bar with perhaps the best view in Breckenridge, and an aquatics area that feels like a mini water park with four swimming pools, seven hot tubs, a grotto, and a sauna. You walk out the door directly to the Rocky Mountain or Colorado Superchair lifts.

The Grand Colorado’s parent company, Breckenridge Grand Vacations, also operates Gold Point Resort, Grand Timber Lodge, and the Grand Lodge on Peak 7. With more than 600 employees, it’s the largest year-round employer in Summit County. And while owners hail from all over the world, 63 percent of the Grand Colorado’s owners to date reside in the Denver area.

Here’s a look inside the property:

The pools and hot tubs are spread across the decks of buildings 2 and 3, rife with waterfalls, fountains and even a giant, enclosed slide. One hot tub is situated so close to the slopes that its occupants occasionally get sprayed by skiers making turns. The hub tub, filled on most winter afternoons with revelers resembling something you’d see in an ’80s ski flick, is located on the deck of building 3, front and center with direct views of the majestic Imperial Peak looming above and the swarm of hundreds of skiers and riders below.

Open to the public, Robbie’s Tavern at the Bergenhof, paying homage to the long-standing Bergenhof restaurant—one of the ski resort’s original buildings dating back to 1961, which operated for nearly 50 years and served as Peak 8’s centerpiece—is now a classy après joint featuring upscale pub fare, creative cocktails, and a great craft beer selection.

The Infinity Spa has quickly become one of Breck’s most popular pampering spots for five-star massages, facials, waxing, and skin therapies. Spa clients get to kick back in the grotto (which means “cave” in Italian) for a sauna, hot tub, or dip into the cold plunge after a spa visit. Photo courtesy of Breckenridge Grand Vacations
Units facing the ski area offer sweeping views of the slopes above and on the front of the building, even better views of Mt. Baldy in the distance. All units with one or more bedrooms are designed with lock-offs, so owners have the option to rent out all or a portion of their unit. Photo courtesy of Breckenridge Grand Vacations
The Colorado suite, measuring nearly 1,600 feet, comes with an enormous bedroom, two bathrooms, showers and soaking tubs, a huge open kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, a dining table that looks like something you’d see in a conference room, a spacious living area featuring a sectional couch along two walls, a massive TV, and a gas fireplace.

The five private movie theaters can be reserved throughout the day and are equipped with hundreds of films of every variety, including new releases, all of which viewers select at their leisure. Breckenridge Grand Vacations
