I'm going there next week, and I want to be able to go somewhere without hoards of people all over the place. Are there any places on the mountains that I can go to escape the crowds?
What kind of spot are you thinking? Are you trying to stay in Breck only? Dillon tends to remain fairly quiet, as least in comparison other areas in the county. Dillon town square has some legit restaurants/bars: Pug Ryan's, Arapahoe Cafe and Jersey Boys is decent, but pricey. Pug Ryan's is hands down one of the best places in the county.
