The Oh Be Joyful Lodge at the Breckenridge Nordic Center [Venue]

These are probably going to be the worst images you’ll ever see of the Oh Be Joyful Lodge at the Breckenridge Nordic Center, a new event venue available for rental very, very soon. I was actually delivering some birthday flowers from the daughter to one of the owners of the facility before popping my head into the construction zone. The workers moved fast and communicated while I was there snapping these pics with my phone.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the development and availability of this new wedding venue in Breckenridge, Colorado. it’s just up the road from the downtown area, and you fly right over it when you’re in the gondola headed up to Peak 8 to ride.

If you’re in town for a few days and want to take a break from the downhill stuff, head over to the nordic center in Breck, there’s one in Frisco too, and strap on a set of snowshoes or rent cross country skis and explore the mountains from a different perspective.

Please contact us to learn more about planning a wedding in Breckenridge, possibly using this venue, and possibly going snowshoeing or xc skiing. We’ll help steer you towards the best resources for your goals and vendor budgets.

So, hopefully these will be the worst pics you’ll ever see of this place. Once the construction phase is over, the friends and famiies will use this lodge to gather. And it will be good. And the photos? Much better. With people. And love. Thanks for reading, and please share with someone you know that needs to see this place!

The Kingdom Must Have Its Castle! Ice Castles Come to Breckenridge, Colorado.

When I say that the Kingdom must have its castle, I am referring to a little known part of Breckenridge history that included it being literally left off the map for a while. And so, local residents began referring to their sovereignty as the “Kingdom of Breckenridge.” And, rightfully so. In fact, the town charter moved back and forth between towns. A motivated crew “captured the flag” and returned from Parkville, where the competing encampment was. But, that’s another story for another time.

This year, the Ice Castles will return to the high country and are being created as I write this, and will be completed sometime in December. That’s a guess, but I would think that want to be up and running for the end-of-year holiday visitors. We look forward to seeing the newest version of the Ice Castles in their new home, and that is, the Kingdom of Breckenridge.
