    Spare room to rent in Breckenridge-150 Yards from lift $70/night - Feb 6 - Mar 8 :)

    Hey everyone, hopefully this is the right place to post this.

    So....... a friend and I booked this amazing condo in Breckenridge. 150 yards from the lift, nice part of town. You can check out the place by click the link here. http://www.vrbo.com/2872

    With less than 2 weeks to go my "friend" has left decided to pull out and leave me with....

    A. No one to live with.
    B. The remaining half of his rent to pay.
    C. An empty room.... which seems a waste.

    I'm pretty happy to have the place to myself, but I also wouldn't object to meeting some new people and sharing the space.

    The good news is that because he already paid half of his share I can charge less and perhaps one of you can benefit.

    So for $70/night (which think is pretty good yeah and we can make it less if you stay for a week) you get your own bedroom and bathroom in a great location in Breckenridge sharing the space with me, a very chilled 37 year old Australian guy. I'm a non-smoker, no longer party animal and I'll be working some afternoons on the lappy when I'm not skiing, watching the odd movie, TV series reading and generally relaxing.

    While I'm pretty open to most people, hard-line right wing, white supremacist big game hunters are probably not going to have a lot in common with me. If you're a lefty - environmentally aware, intelligent, relaxed, well-traveled, communicative and chilled then we could definitely down a few bottles of red and try and solve the world’s problems.

    Bobly, I'm afraid I flunk too many of your personality qualifiers.

    Still happy to share a run with you, though. We'll just keep the conversation to skiing.

    Hey guys.

    Have had to cancel the trip after all.

    Just got back from the festival on Tuesday to learn my Dad has a suspect lump in his neck that the Doctors want out straight away.... In the end I don't want to be half way around the world if there's bad news.

    I'm obviously gutted... was pretty much my dream trip, but will start considering 2013 and who knows, maybe it will be a better year snow wise.

    Thanks for all you help and assistance, will definitely keep active on this forum anyway, and will hopefully run into a few of you over the coming years.

    Yes Bobly I hope your dad does well. Family comes first. I won a 4 day trip to the Canyons in Utah in a raffle once and had to cancel it when my father got ill. Needless to say years later and I'm glad I stayed around here.

    Hey guys.

    Thanks for your best wishes.

    It's still possible I can do March. Can you give me an idea if it's worth it for either BC Canada or Colorado?

    Cheers
