In Breckenridge, Colorado there is a one place that you (and your wallet) will feel so at home, you will never want to leave.

Imagine yourself stepping into a world of upscale mountain chic, accompanied by modern décor and rustic furnishings with just as magnificent personalities that are lounging around telling stories about their day on the slopes. You fill your mug with some hot tea and go sit by the fireplace or join the other lone travelers outside by the fire pit on the deck. Life paths are crossed as you relax into each other’s presence and let the fairy tail of the snow-capped mountains take you away. There is a special charm that will enchant you about The Bivvi, and make you want to come back over and over again.


You know those typical hostels you find in Europe where you are sleeping 14 to a room and have to share a bathroom with everyone else in the building? Well, that’s not this place. The Bivvi is perhaps the nicest ‘hostel’ you will ever stay in. This place is so rad, it has it’s own blog post.

Located just to the north of the main drag of downtown Breck, The Bivvi is situated in the perfect location for those who want to be near all the action without breaking the bank. It’s just a quick walk to all the restaurant and the free ride bus picks up just a couple hundred feet in front of the hostel. Now, keep in mind, this is not your average hostel. It’s a converted B&B so the bathrooms are in the rooms and there are multiple options for a traditional hotel room setup. For the hostel side of things, you can chose a 4 person or 6 person setup – all mixed gender. That being said, it’s a good crowd so don’t the gender thing prohibit you from staying at The Bivvi.

The front desk doubles as the bar so there is a constant flux of friends venturing in the common area. The staff is so rad that you really secretly wish they could be your friends - they are insanely awesome and have a baseline stoke level that is so high it makes me envy their lives.

The hostel is super clean and security is nice and tight with keycards needed for the front and back doors anytime after 10pm. They have an equipment room that would make your mom jealous – so organized and way too convenient for your post-riding sweaty feet. Boot dryers, cubbies, and ski/snowboard racks make this the most clutch equipment room I have ever seen.

Each bunk has it’s own lantern that helps guide you to where you will lay your head that evening. Sheets and towels are all provided and they even have their own line of shampoo and conditioner. They fancy, huh? Damn straight they are – but my wallet fancies them more than my body. You can’t beat the value of the Bivvi, especially if you are travelling solo and really just want some fresh pow to the face. They know what’s important so they start your day off right with a free HOT breakfast served daily from 7-9am.

Now, mix all the fine accommodation aspects with the super rad mentality of everyone else crashing there – we are saying 100% YES PLEASE to this vibe ALL THE TIME. I met some seriously amazing individuals, all of whom had a like-minded head on their shoulders. It was simple… we were there to ride pow and make some great memories in the process.

Well my friends, mission accomplished.
