Another question which maybe should be another thread is:

for people that have epic passes and ride during the week, have you noticed any certain weekdays that are better for each resort? such as a-basin is good on mondays, Breck tuesdays etc..Or as long as its not the weekend are they all about the same?

Feel free to PM me if you dont want to share this with the rest of world lol
Abasin is chill on the weekends compared to breck and keystone. Weekdays are pretty cool, but Keystone and Breck are pretty busy destinations all the time - there are slow days for sure.

Last year it was busy on weekends almost all winter. The last two weeks of December and march 10-25 or so sucked for crowds. during the week was pretty dead nov 15- dec 20 and Jan 2- march 10.

Typically the crowd thinned out a lot after 12 and even more after 2. Beaver creek was the same just on smaller scale..... If you have to park in vail you should get here early and park on the west vail north frontage road and grab the red or green bus line to town... Like a 10 minute bus ride but saves you $25

Thanks for the info, very specific!

Damn is it really that much no matter where you park at Vail??
I heard it was expensive but DAMN!!
Is it the same at Beaver creek?

Does breck, keystone and a-bay all charge for parking as well?

You would think they would hook up season pass holders...

Breck, Keystone, and A-basin all have free parking lots very close to the base/gondolas. Keystone and Breck lots fill up fairly early on weekends, although I can't comment on A-basin. There is a qutie a bit of parking on the streets around Breck and it would only be a couple of minute walk to the gondola. If you're an early morning rider(which you should be if you plan on hitting up summit county on the weekends), then parking USUALLY isn't an issue (holiday weekends aside).

Breck's gondola lots are $5. Satellite lots with shuttles are in BFE.

Argo - can you park on the frontage road at any time, or only after the lots fill up?

On the area I stated, any time. The south side of the frontage road is only when the lots full.

At Cactus Jack's?

Medium quality = only a couple of teeth missing. High quality = full grill, no mention of how straight or white they are; if they're there, she's "high quality".
