Gravity Haus, the social club and hotel for modern outdoor enthusiasts, officially opened its first location today in Breckenridge, Colorado. Conceptualized by Denver-based entrepreneur Jim Deters and his wife Alicia Deters, Gravity Haus is a new take on mountain hospitality. At Gravity Haus, modern, boutique accommodations are fused seamlessly with guided outdoor adventures, community, tech-forward conveniences, and functional fitness and recovery.
“Our mission is to create a Colorado-lifestyle social club that connects a local and global community of nature-loving, outdoor sports enthusiasts,” said Jim Deters, Founder and CEO of Gravity Haus. “Adventure travelers and athletes want to play like a local, check in and out of work with ease, train, and have healthy, smart, and eco-conscious choices that match their modern lifestyle.”
With 60 distinctly curated and configured rooms, the completely renovated ski-in, ski-out property is located at the base of Peak 9 within walking distance of the QuickSilver SuperChair and Breckenridge’s historic Main Street. ‘Breck Haus’ is managed by Vail Resorts and replaces The Village Hotel at Breckenridge. Breck Haus embodies a contemporary Rocky Mountain experience through a host of amenities tailored to the modern outdoor enthusiast including a co-working space, functional training and recovery center, and a Japanese-inspired onsen.
‘Breck Haus’, the first of several planned Gravity Haus properties, features sleek finishes that contrast with exposed structures like concrete floors, repurposed cargo container walls, and reclaimed train car wood flooring. Japanese-inspired elements are spotlighted throughout and combine with eco-conscious touches including EO Essential Oil’s Zero Waste body and bath products, Parachute synthetic-free linens, Monarch Cypress robes and Newly throw blankets made with microfiber from recycled plastic bottles.
Gravity Haus’ goal is to redefine luxury through amazing insider-experiences. The lobby is a bustling campus where local guide operator Colorado Adventure Guides provides expert advice and offers awe-inspiring guided trips into the Colorado backcountry tailored to all ability levels.
Gravity Haus’ manifesto includes the mantra that “everyone's an athlete.” The fitness center at Gravity Haus, Dryland Sports, makes training like a pro easy with top coaches, a schedule of small group HIIT classes, and high-tech recovery equipment like a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and NormaTec compression sleeves. Traveling free-style athlete and teams can take turns on the outdoor Max Air Super Tramp.
The social aspect of Gravity Haus does not end in the backcountry. The Gravity Haus culinary team and Denver restaurateur Bryan Dayton of Acorn, Brider & Corrida have collaborated to bring you Cabin Juice, a unique après and dining experience featuring custom local brews and reimagined classic cocktails with a nod to pop culture. The menu features cocktails like “Big Gulps, Huh?” made with gin, pink peppercorn campari, grapefruit and Indian tonic pair with casually-refined family-style dishes expertly executed by Gravity Haus’ Executive Chef, Salvatore Proia.
“The ‘juice’ is about energy -- it’s about fun,” commented Ben Foote, General Manager and Food and Beverage Director. “Members, visitors and locals come for the camaraderie and community and are blown away by the hospitality and food.”
Gravity Haus features Unravel Coffee’s second location. Unravel’s highly-skilled baristas serve single origin Ethiopian coffee roasted on site in a zero-emissions electric Bellwether Roaster.
