We were able to have a leisurely morning, as our stop for the day was the feed zone. We'd seen a finish (Telluride), a KOM (Cottonwood), we'd have 2 starts (Breckenridge and Golden), and a mountaintop finish (Flagstaff), so we thought this would be a good chance to catch our first ever feed zone.

O tempo estava quente comparado com as outras vezes, fui de camiseta e uma jaqueta só, a temperatura ficava entre -10ºC e 5ºC. Mesmo passando protetor solar, meu rosto descascou no terceiro dia, e todos os dias eu chegava vermelho, e meio inchado embaixo do olho.
No ultimo dia andei junto com um cara da Bosnia, um carioca, e um menino de 14 …
The Math-O-Rama wore out my noggin and my legs as whenever we had a break we did the "speed walk" thing. Roger and the doggies were right on time to pick me up and switch lodging. Breck weather was perfect. While we stopped at the top of Hoosier we all had a surprise Air Show. the crafts were seemingly right over our heads and oh so loud. Video …
So, I'm so excited about this new project that I wanted to dive right in..... I hear on the radio that the class IVs of the Numbers is flowing at 1800cfs. I have no idea what that means but I am told that it means that the snow is melting off the peaks and flowing into the Colorado rivers resulting in the best May rafting in years. I have never …
Today we rendezvoused in Aspen for a trip to Leadville, CO. It started to rain shortly after we started and continued most of the day. First we left town to the west to view the mountains in Maroon Bells in the National Forest. This is a short walk along Maroon Lake you don't want to miss. At the visitor center we viewed about a hundred five-inch tiles on which children had sculpted creatures and insects that are found in the ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Bom, como o Beaver Run não tinha vaga, ficamos nesse, mas ele também ficava do lado da pista e do lift, e foi uma boa estadia.

I arrived at the Great Divide Lodge on Sunday the 7th of March. Upon first glance it looks like every other hotel in the area, but it isn't.
Before reading keep in mind that all the below were charges incurred once we arrived. They were not disclosed to us. First, they charge you to park in their undersize garage. If you drive a compact car it's fine. But majority of people going to the high country have SUV's and ski racks. It made for a really tight squeeze and the price to park was $12 per night! Second, you are charged $.75 for every local call you make. Which you tend to make alot because you need to order dinner after a long day of skiing or for a quick lunch. You may ask, "Why not order room service?" Well, that leads me to my third qualm. You dial room service and sit on hold for 5 minutes, call the front desk to make sure they are open, sit on hold for another 5 minutes then place your order and wonder if something is going to be wrong with your food because you had to really push someone to make an order. Also, count on your room service tray staying in the hall for at least 24 hours!
Convenient but dingy
We have just returned from a weekend at the Great Divide Lodge where we celebrated our first wedding anniversary. We had a fantastic time in Breckenridge but would not stay at this hotel again. Although the staff were very pleasant and the location very convenient for the slopes, the rather scruffy interiors were not what we were led to expect from the hotel's own website. Our room on the tenth floor was small, stale-smelling, and, in parts, dirty. The bathroom was dark and outdated and using it was not very pleasant. Okay for a cheap weekend of skiing but certainly not the place to go for a special occasion.
It's appropriate for skiing....but...
The reviews listed prior to my visiting the Great Divide Hotel were overrated. The hotel is "just o.k.". I really would have been disappointed if I had to spend any quality time there. But since we were gone most of the time, it was adequate. Also, regarding the hot tubs/pools, only do it IF you want to swim with 1,000 kids in tow.
Conclusion: a high-class Holiday Inn....
The Great Divide was a great hotel. The location was very convenient to the slopes. We had a huge room with 2 king beds (even though they said they would be queen). We had an awesome view of the slopes with a wet bar and refrigerator. The decor was nice and so was the staff. They have a shuttle that is available on demand - be prepared to wait a while if you use this service. I would definitely stay there again!
I stayed here this past Jan. (04) and wasn't real impressed. Though it is convenient to get to the lifts and you can rent your skis right there at the premise, I guess my expectations might have been too high.
Huge rooms and great location
Friendly staff. Everything was easy - on one main floor. I might come back here next spring or summer for my company's meeting. Our room was big, clean and had the bonus of a frig plus a wetbar. We walked to town. We had room service for breakfast one day and it was good also.
We visited Breckenridge for four (4) days at the end of July, 2003.
Completely acceptable, with a few faults
Get a room on the 7th floor or BELOW to avoid a very annoying elevator change. Parking is an additional $12/night. On-premise ski check is nice (and free). Rooms are well-appointed, but not particularly noise-proof. Ours had a comfy king bed and refrigerator. About a 5 minute walk to the lifts, location is good -- and if you can get a web-discount as we did it's very reasonably priced. We paid $260 for two nights and that INCLUDED a two-day lift ticket. There was a problem with the reservation originally, but the front desk staff was very, very helpful and happily fixed something that was not their fault. This speaks volumes for the guy, and hopefully the whole staff is like this.
