“Breck” is the perfect blend of everything you could want on a ski vacation: world-class skiing for all levels, a hopping nightlife scene, a range of lodging options, great restaurants, and of course, a historic downtown. With more than 2,908 acres of terrain for all levels of skiers, a handful of world-renowned terrain parks and half pipes, and a state-of-the-art ski and snowboard school it becomes very clear as to why Breckenridge is one of the most popular ski resorts in Colorado. Not to mention Keystone Resort is only a 30-minute drive from Breckenridge and makes for a perfect day trip to check out different terrain.

With encouragement from my family and friends, I decided to move from Virginia to the Roaring Fork Valley in May of 2015. Since then, I've worked at Ski.com and have happily transitioned into the Co-op & Promotions Manager position. Living in the Aspen area is a dream come true, with so much to do and explore. I am truly blessed to have found a community that shares in my love for the outdoors.
