4.5 weeks in march + every family + 500 kids from every college in the nation = 2000 weeks of spring break during march.
Sweet!

I'm glad to get input from people that live in the area.

It's a big group and our first trip to Colorado, so avoiding big lines, overcrowding, closed trails and little snow is definitely NOT what we wanted our experience to be.

Thanks again!

I can agree with this. My family does a trip every year to Beaver Creek the last week in January and most days during the trip its like having the mountain(and 3pm free cookies!!!) all to yourself.

sobrob Your right, I use coupons for Copper and haven't seen any for Breck, like the Shell two for One with fill-up. I think the snow is better in Feb and March, like the snow over the past 3 weeks is the weeks has been the best of the season.

sobrob January is the way to go!!! Feb and March even better. Copper Mountain rocks!!! Not crowded, cool people, good village, awesome terrain!!! When I moved here the locals told me to hit Copper and stay away from the crowded,expensive Breck. Good luck.

Mel M Thanks! You guys really helped me out. I'll point my friend to this thread and maybe re-schedule our trip for the end of January. December's more convenient, but if there's not that much snow and if the lines are hours long, it just isn't worth it.

killclimbz December is always a crap shoot. More often than not it's just okay. 50-80% of any given mountain is open. Usually on the lower end of that number. Every once in awhile you get a season like last year and everything is open by the Holidays. Then you get this year and you're lucky to have 25% of the mountain open by that time. January is generally a good month in Colorado. Snow fall is typically comes in on a regular basis and the powder days start racking up. It's no guarantee, but it's a more solid bet than December.

cjcameron11 The more i think about long lines and crowds and the more i think of how i needed a lot more snow when i was in CO the more chance there is of my doing heli boarding in NZ this coming southern winter!
