You can probably look it up on google maps if need be.
I'm sure it will be less crowded and have a better selection as well! When I was living in Park Co. just over the pass from Summit, we would venture to Breck to get groceries, and the winter produce selection was always picked over, especially during peak tourism. I also always hated dealing with the crowds! Applejacks probably has your best selection for good beer as well!

Grocery stores up here are usually mobbed on the weekends for sure. We do our grocery shopping midweek, when crowds are low and stocks are aplenty. Given that there is a King Soopers right off I-70 in Lakewood, the OP is probably better off stopping there.

Thanks again...taking all of this info on the trip with us. We'll be arriving on a Thursday, so hopefully the stores and roads aren't too crowded.

Another question, we're coming from central Texas, where all the restaurants are smoke-free...don't guess that's the case there in Breck is it?

And any recommendation on what time to hit the slopes?

All restaurants in all of Colorado are smoke-free.

If I'm not mistaken, I think Breck was one of the first cities to go smoke-free. I'm going off memory so the likelihood of that being wrong is high!

As far as hitting the slopes, I am a fan of getting first chair at 8:30. I typically arrive around 8:15 or so. It gives me a couple of good hours before the crowds start to surface.

Thanks again for all the suggestions! We just got back from our first trip to Breck and we're already planning to head back either in the summer or for another ski trip next year!

Applejacks was an experience. There didn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to how things were put out, but we managed to hunt everything down that we needed.

Norway house was a big disappointment for the rentals. My ski's were completely sized wrong for my boot and had to be readjusted when we got to the mountain.

We ate at Mother Loaded the first night we were there based on the suggestion of a local we asked while shopping. It was absolutely fantastic! We talked about that place the entire trip and definitely give it two thumbs up.

We rented a private house, and while I think I'd enjoy a ski in/out place, being isolated up on the mountain on the outskirts of town was really nice.

Sorry to hear about Norway Haus. I assume you mean your boots wouldn't click into the bindings? Did you see them click the boots in and out of the bindings at the shop? That's always the last step in the binding adjustment procedure.

Glad to hear you had a good time! Make sure you check out Breck in the summer. I prefer summer to winter and I LOVE to snowboard and snowshoe.
