After years of taking the six hour drive from New Jersey to Vermont every other weekend, it was time to make the move. A week-long vacation with my wife in March, house sells in one week in April, and the trek across country at the end of May and here we are! From a six hour drive to a five minute shuttle…getting to the slopes is a lot easier these days. Living in Breckenridge is truly unique, nothing like waking up to 6 inches of fresh powder…and it is June! The summers are short but...

Originally from New Jersey, My husband and I went on a ski trip to Breckenridge- once here we never looked back! We sold our home in 2 days and moved to Breckenridge 3 months later. We love Colorado and we love to ski. After having our first and only little girl Cassidy Leigh, Grandma Jackie and Grandpa Andy retired to Breckenridge from New Jersey! I think they love their granddaughter very much!! Jackie helps run the business and Andy drives for the Summit Stage, helping to greet and make...

Born and raised in Denver Colorado, skiing has always been second nature to me. I was lucky enough to have parents who pushed me towards the sport, after my first steps came first chair lift at Breckenridge. After high school I moved to Steamboat Springs, where the real love affair with the high country began. I realized that I may have to move from the mountains to reach my goals, but I would never leave Colorado. As an adult I was lucky enough to move back to Ski Town USA to embark on a...

As a Colorado Native, the mountains are truly where I feel at home. Growing up, my family and I enjoyed skiing all over the Rockies. After concentrating on school instead of the slopes, I moved to Vail the day after college graduation to pursue "the dream." I have lived in a few areas now and each day I explore these mountains I love them more and more. In my mind nothing beats a powder day and a hot tub! Helping people visit and do what I love to do so much hardly seems like work at all....

My passion for the outdoors brought me to Colorado almost twenty years ago where I've enjoyed mountain living every day since! I am raising my family and teaching my kids to ski in the great resort of Breckenridge, Colorado. I love rafting, hiking and camping in the summers and hitting the mountain during ski season. I started planning ski vacations over fifteen years ago because I love sharing the beauty and excitement that the Rocky Mountains have to offer!

Due to my love of travel, I entered the travel industry over 20 years ago at American Airlines and have never left. I have specialized in luxury vacations for over 10 years, including working at the prestigious Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Having lived in England and traveled extensively in Europe, I understand the needs of International guests. As the youngest of four children and responsible for organizing our annual family retreat, I have a significant grasp of the...

Growing up in small-town rural Virginia, I have always had an insatiable thirst for adventure and travel. The desire to understand the world outside of my rural Virginia bubble led me to travel to places like Indonesia, Cuba, Thailand, Costa Rica, and Fiji while guiding for ARCC, a company that takes teens on adventure trips and gap semesters. When I finally decided it was time to settle in one place, I landed in Colorado and never looked back. After a year of hiking (I tackled the entire...

Believe it or not, I gained my passion for skiing growing up in Michigan.  I became a world traveler early on, but always returned to my love of mountain sports.  Then I decided what I wanted to be when I grew up—anything that had to do with the ski industry.  So I relocated to Colorado in 1992 to attend Colorado State University, earned a degree in Natural Resources Recreation and Tourism and began to live the life of my dreams in the high country.
I've been selling customized ski and...

Originally from the Midwest, I learned to ski in Wisconsin. On those small slopes, my love of sliding on the snow first budded. But It wasn’t until my move out to Colorado, for school, that the love became a passion. Before working in the ski industry, I was a rock and river guide. Being a guide, I learned that if you love what you do, you will never have to work a day in your life. Knowing that; having the opportunity to work in the ski industry was an opportunity I could not pass up....

Born in Aspen, Colorado while my Dad was working for the World Pro Ski Tour, I started skiing the first winter I could walk and have been in love with it ever since. I have skied and spent time in almost every ski resort in the Rocky Mountain West and several in South America. During the summer months I love to camp, hike, raft, see live music, and spend as much time outside as possible. I have been planning amazing ski trips for people since 2006 and love what I do. I take pride in my...

I love to ski. Learning at the age of 12 in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, it was quite an amazing experience when I made my first trip to the Rocky Mountains. That was in 1986 to Jackson Hole with the University of Wisconsin Hoofers Ski Club. I continued to ski and explore many other destinations over the years, landing in Breckenridge Colorado in 2000. Already working in the ski travel industry at that time, my goal has always been to grow this fun sport by creating the mountain...

Originally from the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, I traded for the Rocky Mountains over 10 years ago.  I came to Colorado for the first time just after graduating from college.  Driving cross country with two hundred dollars in my pocket and a job as a whitewater photographer, I fell in love with Colorado and never turned back.  My five year old daughter Zoie was born and raised here, and has been hitting the slopes since the age of three!  We enjoy many of the mountain sports Colorado...

Before I married my husband, he made me promise that I would move to the mountains with him.  I said "yes," and after nine years and the birth of our three children, I left the city and my job as an investment executive to raise my family in Summit County. 

Coming from the city the move to a small mountain community was an adventure; however, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love.  As a family we have enjoyed everything the mountains have to offer.  In the summertime we explore...



Hi Tench,

Next time we plan a ski trip, I will call you as you provided the best service I could have ever asked for! I will write a review on trip adviser, and where ever else I can locate a review opportunity. Beaver Run was the perfect location and all check-in/out was smooth and hassle free. Thank you for your help - we all had a great time and appreciate your attentiveness and help.

Jinger, We had a FABULOUS time.  It was great!  I want to thank you for all your help in planning this trip.  You have been a pleasure to work with.  You have gone over and above to answer all of my questions and provide additional information when necessary.  Thank you again for all that you have done for my family and myself.

DavidEverything was great! We could not have had such a smooth, pre-planned Park City ski vacation without your help. We really appreciate all of your help. The kids did AWESOME skiing and we all had a wonderful time full of great family memories!

Thank you!

We all had a great time in Snowmass and were very fortunate with the snow conditions and morning powder. The mountain wasn't as I remember it as so much has changed since I was there in 1986 & 1997.  We will definitely use your services again and recommend you (David) Down Under.

"From the get go, Jinger had our plans dialed right down to the smallest of details. We arrived, checked-in hit the slopeside hot tub and THEN we knew we could relax and enjoy our annual ski vacation. Thanks for all the help!"

Elisabeth, You did good work for me and my family. The Retreatia home in Steamboat was perfect. All the pre-work with tickets/rentals and the car is much appreciated. I could've spent a few hours searching the web, but you knew the location and vendors better than I.

Thank you again!

... Just wanted to give you a big THANK YOU for such a superb job of reserving and arranging everything for our vacation!

We  had a great trip Breckenridge.  The weather was great so were on the slopes from all day every day of the trip. One of my favorite memories was hanging out catching some rays in beach chairs mid slope at 10,000 feet.  Initially when we started planning for this Ski trip were going make all of our own arrangements.... We decided to call Rocky Mountain Getaways to see what they could offer.... Initially we received several vacation packages to choose from and we picked the one that seemed to be the best for our family. While were on the trip and after whole family felt we could not have made a better choice.  Eric - you and Rocky Mountain getaways made the whole process very convenient easy - We are so glad you we didn't try plan the vacation ourselves.  We will definitely use Rocky Mountain getaways for our next trip out west. 
Thanks for everything you did to make this a great vacation. 



We had a great vacation to Steamboat. The snow conditions were amazing. It snowed every day but one while we were there. Temperatures were good also. The accommodations were great. Very nice unit and extremely convenient. We would definitely stay in this unit again. The staff were very nice and helpful. Your description of the unit and location was spot on.  

Thank you for your help David and I look forward to working with you again. 

Steve A.

LisaThanks so much for the follow up, as a fellow sales professional it is always noticed and appreciated! The trip was amazing and everything went off without a hitch, heck, it even snowed the whole time we were there!  You will have a tough bar to get over for next year as a follow up to this homerun!

I have to tell you David, I own a real estate sales company with over 55 sales people and my company was # 1 in NJ for all of REMAXs 170 offices for commissions. I tell you that because I have some great sales people and I just wanted to say, you are a great salesperson. You have a great, calm friendly demeanor and your follow up over the years has been impeccable. I have given your name and info to quite a few people over the years and will continue to do so. Kudos on a job well done from one sales professional to another.
