This past season the 'ski with a friend' thing included 6 discounts of about 20 dollars off. Not great, but still beats making your friends almost $100 per day for a lift ticket.

Yeah, lots of ridiculous riders out here. Plenty of guys (and girls) killin' it.

However, no shame in coming from NC - I'm from there. Hell, you get some of those guys out here on real snow and they fucking slay (BTW, I'm not one of them. I'd never rode before moving to CO). If you can ride that ice/crud/shit back there, you'll jizz your pants when you hit real snow.

Lets put it this way I've seen 2 people paralyzed, 1 guy die, 1 crazy asian do almost a double backflip to his head, and numerous other catastrophes from people that shouldn't be in the park here. I laugh daily.

If you plan on going for more than 5-7 days, it's worth it to get a pass.

Epic Pass: $650 and unlimited everything as stated before.

Epic Local: $500 (I think) and unlimited A-Basin, Breck and Keystone and 10 days at Vail/Beaver creek


Every one of the Vail resorts is basically at least $100 a day.

If your buddies already have passes, they can save you a little money using their "buddy pass" situation, but its only like 20-30 off.


There is one other thing you could do that would be kind of shady... but it might be considered fraud.

It's always interesting watching a guy who can barely stay upright on a board dropping into a 40+ footer.

I mean really... what the fuck are some of these people thinking?

You don't have to steer clear of the park completely. There's plenty of beginner and intermediate features. Just know what you're dropping into.

Classic 9 a.m. conversation. "OK kids you guys can hit this" me to the dad "you know that's a lot bigger than you think" dad to me "no they have this you guys make it look easily" me to the dad "those kids weigh 45lbs you think they'll have enough speed to clear a 20 foot jump" dad to me "they're my kids I'll do what I want with them" me to the dad "fuck it they are your kids have fun peeling them off the ramp" then I snaked them all and left em behind me. Next lap there's ski patrol peeling the kids off the jump.

yeah well my little girl wont be near the park at that stage, she is only 4 and a half, she has only skiied so far. How old do kids have to be to take snowboarding school in Brek? And is it worth the money or should i take the time myself? im thinking by putting her in for lessons gives me time to enjoy myself and gives her some expert advice. Also BA seeing as you live there, we have a house for 2 weeks on king crown rd, is this far from lifts? or from the town itself? im trying to work out if i need a car while we are there or not, any info would be appreciated
