Meet the Hosts

Hello! My name is Kristin! I live in Denver with my husband (and co-Host) Bryce, our two kids, and our dog Jasper! We are outdoor enthusiasts–we love to hike, ski, snowboard, mountain bike, stand up paddle board, and travel. I run a blog (@RaisingHikers on IG) about our family adventures if you want to get to know more about us or want more tips for hiking in Colorado!

Breckenridge holds a special place for us as it was the first place that both Bryce and I ever skied as kids! Me all the way from Southern California, and him from Texas!! Now we are fortunate to be a short drive from this gorgeous mountain and teach our own kids to ski here!

We hope you make beautiful family memories here too! 

Hi! My name is Rashal! I’ve worked with Kristin for the past 5 years in several capacities and we are now good friends. Customer service is important to both of us, so by tag teaming the host responsibilities, we hope to give you the best experience possible! I’ve worked in various aspects of the hospitality industry most of my adult life so becoming a co-host comes naturally to me. My goal is for our guests to have an outstanding experience in every aspect of their stay.

I was born and raised in Washington state and I now reside in North Carolina with my husband, two legged child and four legged child. I’m also a proud plant mom and it’s one of my favorite hobbies.

 If there is anything we can do to make your stay more pleasant, please us know!
