Thanks! You guys really helped me out. I'll point my friend to this thread and maybe re-schedule our trip for the end of January. December's more convenient, but if there's not that much snow and if the lines are hours long, it just isn't worth it.

January is the way to go!!! Feb and March even better. Copper Mountain rocks!!! Not crowded, cool people, good village, awesome terrain!!! When I moved here the locals told me to hit Copper and stay away from the crowded,expensive Breck. Good luck.

Coppers actually more expensive than Breck as it's a resort and governed by Resort tax not town taxes.

End of January is actually the best between X-Games and SIA Tradeshow the county gets real empty up here.

Your right, I use coupons for Copper and haven't seen any for Breck, like the Shell two for One with fill-up. I think the snow is better in Feb and March, like the snow over the past 3 weeks is the weeks has been the best of the season.

I can agree with this. My family does a trip every year to Beaver Creek the last week in January and most days during the trip its like having the mountain(and 3pm free cookies!!!) all to yourself.

ITS FOR COLORADO.

End of Jan/beg of Feb everyone is between vacations (xMas & spring break), its cold, and usually the most snow.

March has good snow, but it also has like 9 weeks of spring break - heres the math:

4.5 weeks in march + every family + 500 kids from every college in the nation = 2000 weeks of spring break during march.

Sweet!

I'm glad to get input from people that live in the area.

It's a big group and our first trip to Colorado, so avoiding big lines, overcrowding, closed trails and little snow is definitely NOT what we wanted our experience to be.

Thanks again!
