Anything is better than that shithole Keystone. I say go further and embrace the richness of Beaver Crotch.

Oh I agree. I can tell Keystone isn't that great. But up to this point they have had the most terrain open and some nice stuff for my girl to learn on. But after seeing the video of vail, I need that powder.

Alright so assuming I am going to Vail or BC what time should I get to those places to avoid any crazy crowding and parking messes? I usually get to Key or Abay 30 mins to an hour before first chair so that I can avoid all the crowds and traffic. Will that be good enough at Vail or BC?

Breckenridge is the shittiest mountain in Summit County. It's nicknames are Breckenfridge and Breckenflat. Face masks must make the shops lots of money. The parking sux, unless you know what your doin and I aint giving away my secrets to not parking in their far away free lots. They have a stupid gondola. Keystone's gondola goes to places that are ridable. If you park in Brecks free lots, you have to take a bus to the gondola then take the gondola, and then you will have to take another chair cause the gondola just goes to the base (lame). They have a clusterfuck of lifts.

Breckenridge gets more snow, but it blows off the mountain anyway. Breckenridge has the best roller in Summit County, but last season they put a no jumping sign on it and guarded it with yellow jackets

There is kinda a Breckenridge hatred over at Keystone. I don't hate Breckenridge, but I like Keystone way better. The thing I hate about Keystone is the changes they have made to make it "kid friendly". They are marketing against their own customers. Years ago they use to be more fun and would have events geared towards their actual customer base. I miss the old days with the green gondola cabins and The Green Lantern.

I would like to point out Keystone has not put up that stupid traffic fence on schoolmarm yet. So less dumb stuff is happening over here.

Keystone is for gapers all you need to know. Plus they have Craig "No snowboarders on my mountain" Simson.

As far as going to Vail that's generally always busier than BC. BC park in the Bear lot hop the bus to the village or the landing depending on which is open and bam go from there. Parking has never been an issue for me there. Vail it's pay to park regardless.

You can still park on the north frontage road by city market or passed the fire house in west vail and hop the bus for free. 1 hour early is plenty for first chair. Vail definitely has more terrain open that BC or keystone. Game creek and chair 11 should be open by Saturday too.

I never pay to park at Vail. You don't know where to park in Vail for free? gaper. I also have a spot in Breck where I can walk to a lift and park for free, but I won't say where it's at.

When people park in my lot and dont have a tag, i call a tow truck. I fucking hate when people take my space. The tow trucks and cops tend to agree with me.... im sure they are the same in breck....
