My family has been visiting Breck for 20 yrs. I have skied/vacationed their as a teenager/bachelor and now a father. Grand Timber is hands down the best value in Breck. You can rent a studio or a 1 or 2 bedroom condo.
If you are looking for a safe place, with lots of things to do for all ages, don't bother looking anywhere else. Grand Timber has 2 indoor/outdoor pools, kiddie pools, 2 workout areas, bar/restaurant, locker rooms, water park (fountain for kids), wi-fi, excersize classes, free tranpo around town. This transportation is provided by knowledgable locals who know what's up. All the walks are heated (so little or no ice ).
The other large resorts (I wouldn't call them a resort-Mariott, Hyatt and Hilton), are all much older, usually cost more and have far far less to offer.
FYI-I was in the pool at the Marriott a couple yr ago (when my wife made me try Marriott because (we would get a better deal). I asked someone why their were so many people in the pool (over 50). IT turns out the Marriott, Hyatt and Hilton (valdoro) all share the same pool ?? Can you believe that.
- Free Wifi
