We hope you find the Lodge by The Blue blog interesting. That’s why we carefully research and choose material we think will be informative and help our guests have a great time in Breckenridge.
Sometimes, we really nail it with posts that get a lot of love from our readers (based on how many times the post has been viewed, liked and shared).
These were our top 5 performing posts. Enjoy the read!
People were excited for the highly anticipated Myla Rose Saloon, and why wouldn’t they be? It’s a convenient place for guests and locals to grab a drink and enjoy a beautifully prepared meal.
“Don’t be surprised at the sophisticated fare on the Myla Rose menu. The “elevated comfort food” menu includes hearty and healthy meal options as well as a craft cocktail menu with specialty cocktails and craft beers to please even the most discerning drinkers (including Colorado spirits such as Breckenridge Distillery and Deerhammer).”
You’d be surprised what all you can find in that hour and a half drive. If you’ve got time to kill, check out these interesting stops.
“Idaho Springs is one of the many towns built upon a former mining establishment that dates back to the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush. About halfway between Denver and Breckenridge, Idaho Springs is home to one of the other famous 14ers, Mount Evans. The small streets are packed with grills and pubs serving a variety of fare.”
There is something especially magical about doing daytime things at night, under twinkling ambient lights. Breckenridge offers several ways to light up your nights.
“Breckenridge Ski & Snowboard School carries torches from the top of Peak 9, down American to the Village in the New Year’s Eve torchlight parade. Grab some drinks at the Maggie or the Coppertop and catch a great view of the skiers and riders illuminating the mountain.”
Yep, Breck locals found another snow sport to enjoy. Why only bike in the spring and summer? Fat biking lets you do it in the snow.
“There’s a variety of fat bike options on the market, with models that include front suspension, better components, range of tire sizes, seat droppers, and more. Be sure to talk with the bike shop staff about your ability level and what style riding you are looking to do and they will help you choose the right fat bike!” (Elizabeth Miller for GoBreck.com)
We all want to at least try to make some healthy choices, even on vacation. And most of us want someone to tell us how. You’re welcome!
“Lodge by The Blue offers guided hikes led by our own in-house experts. Whether you choose easy, moderate or difficult, tackling the beautiful Mt. Quandary isn’t for couch potatoes. A moderate cross-country hike can burn approximately 225 calories.”
Hey, not all of us are experts when we first visit Lodge by The Blue. Get your skis wet on these beginner trails.
“Breckenridge has some world-class terrain that challenges even the most experienced skier, but more than 10% of the mountain is dedicated to beginner terrain (or green runs), easily accessed from the base areas of Peak 8 and Peak 9.”
We hope these give you some ideas for your next visit to Lodge by The Blue (or some happy memories from past visits).
