Default Trip to colorado Help

Im planning a trip with a friend of mine to colorado and we are thinking in staying around 18 days, we are all from brazil. Ive found an apartment to rent in aspen for quite a nice price, but i kinda gave up on aspen after i saw how much the season pass price was. IN the other hand the epic pass for the summit county resorts in colorado sounds reasonable enough and we could stay in a hostel in breck. Ive never been to colorado so any insights on where we should go would be nice thanks

I've been to Breck twice and love it there. The terrain isn't all that challenging but there is decent variety and the town itself has a really cool vibe.

I don't remember it being out-of-line expensive but I guess it depends on what you like to eat. I'm a burger and pizza person so I can usually find that kind of stuff at a decent price. If you're gonna be there for 18 days you're not gonna want to eat a restaurant every night, are you? There's a couple of food stores in town where you can pick up stuff to eat and save some bucks.

The a Epic pass is a good deal - make sure you hit that.

make sure to get your passes EARLY, as in before thanksgiving (thats late NOV)

when you show up in march ready to rock, epic passes are not that great of a deal.

What's your skill level and what kind of riding are you looking to do?

Yeah food is going to be expensive if you eat on the mountain, but that's no different than any other big resort I've been to. They have free buses that run through town to both Keystone and Breck so transportation is not an issue.

Forgot Vail and Beaver Creek were on that pass, damn that is a good deal. To my knowledge the buses run to Breck and Keystone from the immediate area, then there are also shuttles that run to Vail and Beaver around Eagle/Avon. I'm not sure what your options are to get between the two areas.
