Dorothy Sabo, Breckenridge Recreation CenterI would like to comment your employee Dorothy Sabo for her excellent teaching skills, patience and caring attitude that she displayed with my daughter during her private swim lessons. My daughter had experienced some bad swim lessons at home and decided that she did not ever want to swim again. However, in High School part of her academic credits is to complete and pass a basic swim course. Dorothy not only succeeded in getting my daughter ready for this class, but also restored her self esteem and confidence. I am so thankful that Dorothy was able to help. She is a phenomenal teacher and a true asset to your staff! Maureen K. Greene, Colorado Springs Kate Steinmann, A Mountain Sanctuary Day SpaKate was very welcoming when my husband and I came to get our first ever massages. Her smile and gentle tone put us at ease immediately. The experience has definitely inspired us to become so disgustingly rich that we can afford a daily professional massage! Seriously, we can not wait to come back. Michelle and Mike Bass, Toronto, CanadaKate explained every step of the wrap. She was amazingly friendly and talented. I am glad I live in town so that I can recommend her to my friends. I will be back!

Ryan Dorst, Pups Glide ShopAs I entered the shop I was greeted by six friendly faces! I am very hard on my equipment so the work required was huge.

Dave Bonno, Breckenridge.Ryans relaxed yet totally professional manner makes a visit to the shop a great reminder of the kind of service that makes Breck … Breck! Jane Tarlow, Breckenridge. Kelly Sanders, Grand Timber LodgeA visitor was at the Sales Center taking a tour. After the tour he was waiting for the shuttle bus to take him back to his hotel. Due to weather and lots of traffic the shuttle was delayed. The visitor was in a wheelchair so he was not able to get back to the hotel on his own. Kelly offered him a ride and took him in her car! Irina Garner, Breckenridge. Grand Timber Lodge, Mike and Rob MillisorWe came to stay in Breckenridge for a couple of days. While we were here, we signed up for a tour with Grand Timber.
