Default Less craziness at Breck than Vail on Closing Day

Breck was a lot more mellow on closing day than Vail was last weekend on its closing day. Perhaps we just didn't know where to go, but there was no organized out of control partying at Breck like there was in Vail. Some costumed people at Breck, (the three boarders in business suits, one even carrying a laptop bag; Winnie the Pooh, a dude in a prom dress et al), but nothing like the freak fest in Vail. We knew people at Vail, and had an awesome time hanging with them, but we couldn't participate in the heavy drinking at Vail for our own safety's sake.

Also, Ski Patrol at Vail makes a pass at 4PM, let's eveyone know that they are on their own after that and allows people to stay on the mountain and party. At Breck the SP was shepherding us down after 4.

Either way, we had an awesome time closing out the resorts, but it is interesting to see the differences
