Lodging community recaps strong summer performance
By Bob Berwyn
SUMMIT COUNTY — Tourism in the high country continues to climb back from the deep recession, with the Breckenridge Chamber reporting that 2012 summer occupancy and average room rates both climbed in tandem for the first time since 2008.
For now, Breckenridge is outpacing some other resorts in terms of winter reservations, 16 percent ahead of last year at this time, according to Scott Fortner, marketing director for the Breckenridge Resort Chamber.
SUMMIT COUNTY — It’s been a dream ski season in Summit County, and while some of us are ready to break out the flip-flops and bikes, I decided to celebrate winter one last time with some of the best archived snow shots at Summit Voice.

It’s been an amazing early ski season so far here in Summit County. I was skiing in powder at Breckenridge this morning and couldn’t resist taking a short video. I had to shoot it from the base, however, because it was snowing too hard to take out my camera up on the mountain. That’s a problem I’ll be happy to deal with any day!
Breckenridge just reported on its Facebook page a couple of hours ago that the resort plans to open the T-Bar tomorrow (Nov. 17), the earliest the T-Bar has ever opened in the resort’s 49 year history.
