The Lodge at Breckenridge celebrated its grand reopening on Friday, Dec. 5, with complimentary samplings from the new Traverse Restaurant & Bar, tours of the property, raffles and giveaways, music from local band the Pine Beetles and a visit from Ullr, the Norse god of snow, who was on hand to christen the site.

More than 300 guests attended the event, many saying they hadn’t been to the property in more than 10 years and were excited to see the results of the $3.7 million renovation.

The photo booth had a continuous line, and Ullr brought out the town spirit and made it feel like home for attendees.

“People loved the food,” said Austyn Williams, with Peeples Ink PR, which hosted the event. “The staff said they were raving, and chef Brent Turnipseede said they were taking food off the trays before it even got to the buffet tables. Guests loved the tours; they asked lots of questions and were excited about the food and beverages in the rooms.”
