Not on a free bus. From Breck to Frisco transfer center it's 40 minutes on a good day so add 10 for winter plus stupidity of people that are always running after the bus so it has to stop and wait. Then you sit for 10 to 12 minutes in Frisco at the transfer center after you switch buses. Then on a good day its 15 minutes by bus but on average 22 in the winter.

Thanks very much to all who replied, its very helpful.



@Tarzan, I'm guessing people would be topping at around 800-1000 per night. So not slumming it, but not going all the way spa style. We've got wives in the group so its a bit different planning all around. Maybe 4-5 daily first to last riders plus about 8 more that take days off, wake up late etc.
Thanks for that link.

Not feeling a lot of love for Park City, good to know.

FYI, I'm trying to go with a different group right after as part of the same time off to Cottonwoods, staying at Brighton, so that's why I didn't include that as an option for the first leg. Not sure if Brighton is worth the full 15 days (two legs)? Basically I have three groups that I'm trying to line up so that I can just take a 3 week holiday, and one transatlantic flight. So the last 2 weeks of Feb, first week of March and whatever combo of three resorts.
Obviously I can hop from Denver to SLC but thought I'd avoid that type of thing this year. But no big deal if that's better.

How is Frisco BTW, is it worth staying and driving/shuttling to the various CO resorts near it?

many thanks again

Honestly, 3 weeks is still not enough time to spend at the cottonwood resorts. They are good. I am biased since I live here yes. There are 3 places that truly are top notch and offer all the types of riding imaginable.

I did enjoy riding at Solitude, when I was there we had some nice powder, but Summit County riding is more fun in my opinion due to the food, drinks, entertainment, etc. I also enjoy the Summit country resorts more than Utah, there were a lot more runs to do because the mountains in general there are larger.

Yes. Yes. Everybody go to Colorado. There is nothing to see over here in Utah...Nothing to see - move along.

I agree WasatchMan nothing here in Utah. If anyone does make sure to stay on the groomed trails since that is all we offer here. The mountains here are flat and we don't have parks especially like Summit County offers.

Fuck Colorado go to Utah less people = less lines and the resorts are all relatively similar in size depending on where you go and what you're looking for. Frisco is a good central location that has night life but far better to drive than take the free bus.

Yeah Utah has a lot less lines and similar amount of snow, but there are less places to go after snowboarding, I mean if he only cares about the riding and getting as much as he can in, Utah is good but Colorado has more of a "packaged deal" with more non-snowboarding things to do than Utah
