Global Connections, Inc. recently acquired Skier’s Edge Lodge in Breckenridge, Colorado and rechristened it Lodge by The Blue. According to GCI’s CEO and President, Tom Lyons, the name was chosen to reflect the wonderful retreat in the Rocky Mountains that is right on the Blue River.
The Lodge by The Blue is located 5.5.miles south of Breckenridge at the base of magnificent Mount Quandary, and within an hour or less of eight ski resort areas: Breckenridge, Keystone, A-Basin, Copper Mountain, Loveland, Ski Cooper, Vail and Beaver Creek. The famous Continental Divide is only three miles away.
“The Lodge by The Blue is a family resort, located in the heart of some of the best skiing in Colorado and perfect for families looking for a convenient, affordable location in the Rockies,” said Tom.
Guests at Global Connections’ Breckenridge property will enjoy newly renovated accommodations and common areas. The two story lobby renovation includes the addition of all new distressed wood flooring, antique-style gas lantern wall scones and a multi-tiered elk antler chandelier to enhance the ski chalet atmosphere.
The lobby walls have been redecorated with teal and jute, and the après ski wine bar now sports granite counter tops. In addition, Global Connections has created a game and book lending library for guests as well as a mini mart offering sundries, snacks and outdoor supplies.
Guests can choose from a number of spacious room sizes from suites to one-two bedrooms, and studios. The resort features the only heated indoor swimming pool in the area, a 10-person hot tub, and fitness center. The gigantic stone fireplace in the center of the lobby is a popular place for relaxing after a strenuous day on the slopes.
