Skier's Edge Lodge Now to be Owned and Managed by Global Connections

OVERLAND PARK, KS – January 9, 2015 – Global Connections, Inc. (GCI), the highly respected developer, travel club fulfillment and service provider, has purchased Skier's Edge Lodge (Breckenridge CO) to become its fifth resort in a growing portfolio of wholly owned resort properties.

Skier's Edge Lodge is located 5.5 miles south of Breckenridge at the base of Mount Quandary and within an hour of eight ski resort areas:  Breckenridge, Keystone, A-Basin, Copper Mountain, Loveland, Ski Cooper, Vail and Beaver Creek. The Continental Divide is also located less than three miles away.

With three spacious room sizes to accommodate everyone from couples to extended families, the 27 unit Lodge (13 studios, 12 one bedroom and 2 two bedrooms) is one of the only facilities in Breckenridge with a  heated swimming pool as well as a ten person hot tub. In addition to the comfortable accommodations and quiet yet central location, the cozy ski lodge's most popular amenity is the gigantic stone fireplace in the center of the lobby. Skiers love to warm up by the historic center piece and share tales with each other after a day in the snow.

Its resorts are winners of numerous Trip Advisor Awards and continually receive accolades from its members and resort guests.
