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.
