We picked Breckenridge and this particular property because we live in Boulder, Colorado, and can be in Breckenridge in less than two hours. We were there in the summer of 1996 and stayed at a place near the Blue River. It was a typical Colorado day--the sun was shining, the sky was blue, it was hot but without the humidity that plagues so many other states--and we thought: Wouldn't it be nice to have a place here. The rest is history!
Our condo at Powderhorn sits on the Blue River, so in the summer we can leave the doors of our deck off the master bedroom open and go to sleep to the sound of the river beneath us.
Powderhorn is also adjacent to the Peak 9 Quicksilver lift, so an easy ski-in ski-out and is also less than 10 minutes on foot to Main Street. Of the various ski towns close to Denver, Breckenridge is by far the largest and the one with the richest history. So after a hard day of skiing, biking or hiking we can enjoy some truly outstanding restaurants.
