Wink Breck/Vail/Keystone

I'm heading out to Colorado this weekend and was wondering what are the best trails are at these spots. I like to ride blues and black diamonds here in the northeast but I don't know how that translates to the Rockys..

You will be able to figure it out pretty quick

If you're doing northeast blues and blacks, you're going to have plenty to swallow here without being told where to go.

Just be careful if you dabble with the trees, the snow is shallow and you'll probably gash your board pretty good. Not to mention get hurt if you're having fun on northeast blues. Summit and Eagle country resorts in bounds aren't very steep so don't worry about that.

Don't be afraid to move around and find something you like

And if you're at Keystone, get out of the back before 2pm, it gets super cold there all of a sudden around 2pm. It's happened to me every time I've been there and it sucks! Miserable trip out while you're tired.

And don't forget to stay hydrated since you're taking a massive altitude change

Yeah, I have my camelback all ready to go. I've been to Denver a few times, just haven't boarded out west yet. Can't wait, just wish the resorts got dumped on like Denver did last week.

Um ya, we got smoked in Denver and the resorts you're wanting to hit got literally nothing.

Ridiculous split storm

I got every bit of 2' at my house near downtown

Sux. I am thinking next year just going to Whistler. At least there you can practically be guaranteed good coverage.

Which is the better mountain though? Vail or Breck? I heard Vail is a much bigger mountain.

Depends on what you want and what areas you know

I like Vail personally but I know the place well
