To jump start the winter season, the mugs will be stuffed with coupons from local businesses to help locals celebrate Breck’s opening day to its 50th anniversary season.
It might seem impossible to raise the bar any higher at Breckenridge Ski Resort after a record-setting snow season during which the luxury One Ski Hill Place, A RockResort opened and amenities like the Gold Runner Coaster and 22-foot superpipe debuted making headlines across the ski industry. But the bar can go higher as Breckenridge hits 50 on opening day, Nov. 11, 2011. Breckenridge’s golden season will continue to bring signature events like the Winter Dew Tour stop in December, Ullr Fest and the International Snow Sculpture Championships in January, the new Spring Fever Festival in April, as well as the great snow and customer service you’ve come to expect at Breck. In addition, 50th anniversary celebrations, promotions and fun will abound all season long.
