Argo This is the first year but vail is enormous so even on the busiest days it's not horrible. I spent the last four days in copper for my sons comps and I now fucking hate copper. Gaper galor and lines that are insane. Vails lines move fast overall and it's rare that you have to wait when it isn't a holiday. Most people will stick to the golden peak side or vail village area. The backsides and Blue skys outer areas, lions head and steeper blues and black runs are pretty empty generally.

Busiest lines are the gondolas, chair 4..... I have never waited more than 20 minutes on the busiest days in the group line cause I had family here. Usually I just hit the singles line and might wait 2-5 minutes when it's packed.

I would say get there at 7:30, get in line at 8, and you will basically have the mountain with about 20 other people until about 10:30 or 11. Its worth getting up early. The same goes for most mountains out here. The crowds don't start till 11 or so unless its some kind of crazy powder day.

Edit: For your other question. I rent a condo with friends in silverthorne which is about 10-15 mins from Breck. So I would say if you are staying in Breck or Frisco, head out about 6:45 or 7 and you will get there for when the gondola starts.

I go up pretty much every morning for first chair in lionshead because no one hits the mountain until around 10. This includes the holidays. To get to the back bowls just go up vail village gondola ONE. Then take chair 4 and drop into sun up bowl. on your smart phone will tell you the bus time. I'd get into vail by 730 and grab a shuttle to town from the north side frontage road in west vail. The parking down there on the road is free.
