Breck isn't 20 minutes from Frisco, unless there's gaper traffic. Anyways hop the summit stage into frisco get off at the transit center and walk down to main street. The place thats downstairs that someones referring to is either Jakes dive bar, Ullrs (doubtful), my guess its Downstairs at Erics, good food, not that great a bar, hottest waitresses in town. The places to go to are Cecelia's or Liquid in the La Cima Mall on main street. But its snomies and skanks thats about it. Frisco has backcountry brewery, Po' boys, and that other bar I've never been to but heard it can get out of hand.

And where else are you going to pay $5.50 for a 24oz PBR in a can?

Well I hate to sound like a know it all that's lived in Colorado his entire life but yeah, Breck is that far from Frisco when it comes to normal jackass yuppie dipshit traffic. If it wasn't for the 2000 people that didn't know how to drive their BMW SUV's it would be a 3 minute drive, which is also the reason you can sit in line at Breck for 30 minutes or go to Loveland and blast 10 runs in that time. Oh yeah and don't mind the $10 parking where you still have to ride a bus to Breck, it's all worth it when you are in line for EVER to catch a 6 man lift My true honest opinion is if you want to RIDE don't go to Breck, if you like shopping, tourists, and boredom, Breck is your best bet.

Well it depends....if it snows then yeah but my ass is spoiled. It'll be deep pow and at Loveland I get pissed if I have to wait an entire 5 minutes to jump a chair. Breck is just a happening place, when you type COLORADO snowboarding on google it's one of the first places that shows up. It is a good place to drag your family out from florida, but if you are a seasoned rider, I personally wouldn't waste my time there. SHit I live here, and I regret it deeply every time I go there. Abasin, Loveland, even Keytone if you plan on coming here, but....check out Wolf Creek if you are making a vacation of it. Wolf Creek makes Love look BUSY, and sicker terrain, cheaper lodging, more party, etc etc.

I don't think it has better parties by any stretch. It does get a ton more snow and is a lot less crowded for sure. If you stay in Pagosa Springs you should be able to find some fairly happening spots to hang out at night.

i didn't realize pagosa springs was so far away from the other resorts. i think we'll probably stick with the a-base/loveland approach, and probably staying in dillon or silverthorne.

ps, shout out to mr right for an AMAZING round of advice via pm. that dude knows CO like none else.

Haha, I wouldn't say that but I have lived here for pretty much my entire life so that definitely helps. I didn't neccesarily mean Wolf Creek has MORE partying but it's not a bad place to get your swerve on. When I lived there I knew everyone in that town it seemed within a couple months, because in Pagosa if you aren't working or snowboarding, you are drinking lol. I guess I shouldn't talk down on Breck so much because it's a pretty nice mountain, I'm just anti-social and hate large crowds of gapers.

Okay, not to sound like an idiot, but as a midwesterner, I have no idea what a "Gaper" is? I'm guessing its the people who come on the weekends and crowd up the mountain

i was in your shoes too, but then urbandictionary.com enlightened me.

"A gaper is a skiier or snowboarder who is completely clueless. Usually distiungished by their bright colored clothes and a gaper gap, the gap between goggles and a helment/hat. Gapers also do the "Gaper Tuck" which is an attempt at being a ski racer by tucking, however, it is done incorrectly with the poles sticking straight up like thunderbolts and lighting, very very frightning! Gapers also sit at the bottom of jumps and try and go big off table tops in the park."
