Breckenridge vs. Vail
Ok, so I've made last minute plans this weekend to fly out from NY to either hit up Vail or Breckenridge. I'm a complete tourist and I'll be by myself. I'm not really a park boarder but love backwoods. If you had to choose between the two, considering the conditions this coming Thanksgiving week as well, which would you go with? Reading online seems like Vail is for snobs while Breckenridge is more laid back and catered to enthusiasts.

Flight is booked, just need to book hotel so I appreciate anyone's opinion. Also, looking for a night life around one of these places, let me know which you think is better...

Considering that Vail hasn't even opened (opens tomorrow the 18th) yet, I'd go with Breck. Breck has been operating for a week now which generally means more terrain will be opening than with what Vail will have. Plus we really haven't gotten a lot of snow lately and Vail is at a lower altitude, meaning that they'll have less snow.

Breck has shit for terrain open and will be ungodly packed go to Vail.

If he's flying in from NY, I doubt he is looking for an Abasin or Loveland type experience.

Well he did ask between Vail and Breck. Loveland is the best bet for terrain right now imo.

Anyway, keep stating your assholes, I mean opinions about where to go...

lol at Vail is for snobs and Breck is more laid back

The people who assume Vail is full of assholes always gets a chuckle out of me.

Go to Breck because you will likely have a snob spit on you in Vail, they're all snobby and stuff.
