I just got back and I did Vail friday and Loveland Saturday also went out in Breck on Saturday and we stayed in Dillon. Dillon is a nice town but not much going on outside of a couple of restaurants. Vail was the second sickest mountain I've been on but then we did have a powder day and were only riding the back bowls and bluesky basin all day so hard to compare to anything but Snowbird in Utah which I liked better. Loveland was the most fun mountain I've ever been to and let me say descending from the top of the ridge with the wind kicking and the temps at like -20 riding hardpakced windswept snow with a very, very sharp angle on the face was a trip!
In terms of Breck the place to eat that we found was Kinosha Steakhouse or something like that... don't get scared the prices aren't bad and they have a buttload of beers on tap. Great bbq, check out the pig out platter. We also went out to that place Erics where you have to walk downstairs to get to it, not bad... and we also got some drinks at another bar but I can't remember the name. That last place was jumping but I was hammered by then so it's hard to remember. This was a Saturday night with the snow sculptures being displayed for the first time so it was crowded but there were a bunch of hot women there though the ratio sucks worse than going to an all male highschool...
Frisco looked like a super nice town very similar to Dillon but closer to Breck, seemed like alot was going on there when we rolled through though.
I definitely recomend a day at Loveland, awesome value, no lift lines and any type of terrain you could want from steep faces, to deep pow, to fast groomers it's all there and it's cheap as shit! We stopped at the Christy's Sports in Dillon and got our tickets for a Saturday for like $46 I think and it was seriously the most fun I've ever had on a mountain
