Is the weeklong rental dead?

No, but it might be on the endangered species list. It's easy to think that increasing your nightly minimums is a good strategy to boost revenue. There is often an inverse relationship between minimums, occupancy and revenue. A solid understanding of the rental market in your area is key to finding the right balance between nightly minimums that will actually drive increased occupancy and minimums that will kill your reservations.

Escape Room Breckenridge - A Locals Perspective

I have not participated in the Escape Room experience before, and because of that I found myself uncertain of what to expect and weary that it wouldn’t be fun.  Boy was I wrong!  The Escape Room was a thrill, and I cannot wait to do it again with friends and family!  I would highly recommend the Escape Room as a fun evening activity to accompany dinner or drinks; or as a fun “off-day” activity.  The entire experience takes a little over 1 hour and reservations are highly recommended.  With a short tutorial and 2 minute video your group of 4-6 people is locked in a room (set to a theme) and you are charged to discover and solve clues in order to “escape” the room within 60 minutes.  Its basically CLUE set to real life and its a thrill to work against the clock to solve the mystery.  The Escape Room is a unique experience and a neat way to bond with family, friends and colleagues.

FREE Lake Dillon Kayak Tour - A SkyRun Exclusive

As the summer ramped down, our family had the opportunity to participate in a SkyCard Summer Activity - a Kayaking Tour on Lake Dillon!  I made the reservation through Xplorie and the process was very simple.  Our Xplorie representative was friendly and patiently walked us through the entire reservation process explaining the types of tours, and days and times available.  We reserved a Sunday morning 1.5 Hour Family Tour.  That morning we arrived 15 minutes early to find parking, walk to the docks, sign-in, and get life jackets.  Having never kayaked before I was pleased the Guide did a quick tutorial on how to properly hold and row the oar.  Within minutes, all the families were happily loaded into double kayaks and we were off!
