FYI, there is a bus called the Swan Mountain Flyer. It goes from Breckenridge to Keystone, to Arapahoe Basin, it loops those mountains. This bus stops at the main bus station in Breckenridge at the base of their stupid worthless gondola. I am not sure when it leaves Breck, it leaves every hour.

I would go to all the mountains. A lot of people's views on mountains are strictly based on opinions and experiences. I think Keystone is better than Breckenridge. I have hundreds of days at Keystone and over a hundred at Breckenridge.

Do you have a pass? If not, Copper is a good mountain to visit. If other people are going, shell stations are offering 2 for one lift tickets if you buy 10 gallons of gas for Copper. I believe the tickets are not good on Saturdays and you have to ask to get one.

I think Beaver Creek is the best mountain for trees. However trees are probably too sketchy when you arrive. We need more snow.

Beaver Creek was great yesterday besides being freezing, but plenty of snow in the trees and no one there.

Hmmm, next day off I shall think about going and getting my first Beaver day. I rode Keystone today for a few laps. It was very cold. So thankful for the gondola. I lapped that cozy gondola. The snow was not bad. I did not dare venture into the trees.

Ya thats what kinda sucked about the Beav was no Gondola to warm up in between runs....Vail is nice for this as well especially since Eagle Bahn lets you lap the park which has so many features the lines are endless.
