I'm looking to vacation Breckenridge Ski Resort for a three day break around the 27th of Dec. to 7th of January time frame. Which dates would you recommend for cheapest lodging? Do anyone know where cheap lodging can be found in between Denver and Breckenridge? Thank you very much.

p.s. I was thinking about Georgetown or something close by. Any experiences? Thank you.

p.p.s.

lodges and cabins are preferred over hotels. 6 people or more expected.

Sirius, are you serious? Breckenridge is a ski resort and the Christmas/New Year holiday is THE busiest time of the year for all of the resorts. It is high season, which means high prices. I'd be surprised if you find anything available, but you could try a web site called Vacation Rentals by Owner, especially for a party of your size.

Georgetown is way too far -- at least a half hour to 45 minutes on mountain roads without snow. Add about an hour to that for the weekend traffic through the Eisenhower Tunnel. If you really want a vacation at a resort, you don't want to spent that much time on the road.

You may be able to find something if you wait until after January 7 when school goes back into session.

Everyone who can rent their home or condo would at least rent it during the Christmas. That means homes in Denver, Georgetown, Leadville, Kremmling, anywhere within a couple hours of the ski area. To save money, you need to search for 'packages.'

But without question, everyone will ask top rate from Christmas Eve to the day after New Year's. That means no deals...now. At the last minute, there could be some people who discover they can't use their condo or home and might rent it for 10% off.

Wow, are you guys serious!? We have, as of current, 10 people going with us. So I should expect $400 a night at the lowest? (that's the best I'm finding so far).

If anyone has any advice, I'll appreciate it. Thank you guys for both taking the time to answer my question.

Actually, if you can find lodging for 10 people for $400 a night, I would consider that a very good value for the holiday rush season -- consider that's only $40.00 per person, per night. You'll certainly not find much better than that -- well, not unless you want all 10 of you to cram into a studio apartment (not that the owner would allow that!)

Come in early December, or mid-April, then it's a different story. But you're coming in the busiest time of the season.

As for Georgetown, you could probably stay at the Georgetown Motor Inn or the Super 8 if you just can't find a place to stay in Breckenridge. But it'd still be about an hour door-to-door to the slopes (closer to A-basin or Loveland). weekend and holiday traffic is terrible through the tunnel, by the way, but on a normal weekday it's not all that bad.
