So the question is this, which should we do first?

We're going on Thursday the 16th and Friday the 17th with a stay in Frisco between them.

Our thought is Vail Thursday, hit the scene afterwords, then go to Breckenridge Friday and drive back to Denver. We're thinking if our tired old legs need to cut out around 3pm, we'd rather short out Breck.

Thoughts on factors like drive back, how crowded do they all get on a Friday....

Thank all.
Unless you ride park I would skip Breck personally.
Vail frontside if it hasn't snowed, backbowls if it dumps (not sure what state they are in this season though).
