CO: Going snowboarding tomorrow, where?

So I where do I go tomorrow? Doesn't look good anywhere in the Colorado area but I'm dying to go. I have the epic pass so i'm stuck to vail, breckenridge, vail, beaver creek, arapahoe. I spend most my time at the terrain park, especially with garbage weather like this. Anyone that has been out can chime in?

I was at Vail last Sunday and it was pretty good considering the conditions. Also, it has the most open now, over 1400 acres. Pretty much everything is open except the back bowls and blue sky basin. Beaver Creek sounds pretty good by the info they have on their website but I haven't been this year yet to confirm but 1000 acres open isn't bad.

I was just at Vail yesterday. It had snowed about 4" according to the REI app, but it looked like more while I was there. Probably 6" in most places, though I found some spots that still had fresh snow in the trees that was about a foot deep. I doubt there is anything fresh left, but they did have a number of runs open plus they were making snow in a few spots. Right at the Vail village lift area, the big blue run right in front of that was closed off for some reason but had all the fresh snow on top just untouched waiting. But.. the mountains right across the street barely even have any coverage. Maybe they'll open that one up soon, as well as a few others to widen things up.

My guess based on what the REI app said yesterday, is to do either Vail (4" according to the app) or Beaver Creek (5").

You might as well go to Breck or Keystone and stick to the park. Either that or bring a big, stiff cambered stick and bomb the shit out of some hardpack. That's what I did at Loveland today and had a blast.

Oops, forgot about that. Yep, sounds like Keystone it is.

If he's thinking park, yeah.

Everything outside of park right now is the same old hardpack anyway at the Epic Pass resorts.
