Default Was Breckenridge the right choice for my CO trip?

Planned a CO trip & i'm kinda 2nd guessing I booked breck as the trip now =/ After being to keystone that has a gondola that goes all the way to top and has LONG runs down to the bottom i'm kinda worried the trip with all my friends for our main CO trip is to breck now! When I really look at there trailmap i'm not really seeing any high vert's or long trails that the lifts really service for normal runs..? Did I make the wrong choice for what i'm looking for? I can get short 1 mile or less runs around here =/

Jesus 'effin Christ dude, get over the run length thing. If you look at it Breckenridge has a vertical rise that is almost 200 vertical ft longer than Keystones. And really? You are going to make a big deal out of vertical? The longest vertical run at Keystone is School Marm. A freakin' beginner run. It's the terrain found on the mountain. I guarantee that Horseshoe bowl at Breck is going to spank your ass and it's no where near the longest vertical you can get there. It's also going to be way better, more fun terrain than anything around where you live. You have nothing like it. It's the unique terrain that counts. At least imo. I could care less about how long a run is. A long groomer is just that. Groomed and lame. Give me some natural terrain with natural features to go work over.

The biggest question is if you are going to like Breck or not. The town is way better than Keystone for sure. The mountain is not my favorite, but neither is Keystone. I'm not a fan of either. But your lift ticket for Breck is also good at Keystone and it's a short drive or free bus ride over there. So you can pick and choose what you want to do.

If I where you I'd check out the smaller resorts like A-Basin and Loveland with much less vertical but way better terrain.

if you are complaining about breck, you really need to view some pictures of ethiopian kids.

its a great resort, and hit copper up while you are there.

Breck is far superior to Keystone, Hit up breck during the day for the terrain, then Keystone afterwards for the night park, pass works at both mtns.

i jus came back from my early season co trip this past weekend. I was at vail, beaver creek, keystone and breck.

Tho with limited runs, breck and beaver creek is my favorite on this trip.
ive stayed at keystone before and i stayed at vail this time. Vail is by far my favorite town to live in. But ive heard comparable night life at breck.

as for the longest run thing...i think i got over it alrdy. Long runs doesnt = fun. In fact i found it to be boring and my legs got tired pretty fast after few runs.

im sure breck will be a great pick, dont worry about it. And if ur still hung up on the long run thingy, i believe breck's 4 o clock is 3.5 miles long?

long runs usually equal snow on the dirt road that they use in the off season for mtn maintenance and not necessarily the most awesome ride ... takes the space shuttle minutes to get into space takes me two hours to drive across town ... guess which ride is more exciting

Keystone is for fucking gaper ass retards that couldn't handle a short vertical with a steep decline. Go ride Keystone and stay in Breck they aren't that far apart hell there's a free bus. Oh and while you're at it go get some of that there night skiing at Keystone that everyone raves about.

God the more I live here the more I fucking hate the people that think Keystone is the greatest thing since they invented internet porn.

We'll there was no need to be mean =/ Around by me I spend so much time on the lift it's so annoying.. I know your used to everything out by you so you dont understand but man...our runs are 20seconds - 1 minute at most then back on the lift for us... it's really a bummer around here so thats important to actually stay on the board for more then 20 seconds to me =/ I understand what your saying with unique terrian but keep in mind what I mean by the right choice for me, is that we have 4 "newer" boarders with us as well.. We got 6 skilled boarders so I want to make sure we have nice long groomers for our newer boarders to ride on that is going with us. Also is a full day lift ticket good for keystone at nighttime if I buy it at breck? I know it's good for both during the day but wasnt sure if I could use the same lift ticket after boarding at breck all day then heading over to keystone for night? thanks
