Brekenridge

Whats up everybody most of you have been very helpful in answering my questions and I thank you for that. Finally pulled the trigger and booked a trip to Breck in February with a bunch of my buddies. Unfortanetly no whistler for me this year due to passport issues with a few members of our group but maybe its better off not going to such a big mountain for my first trip out west. Anyone have any comments on breck or any tips for me?

Grab some beers at the Breckenridge Brewery. The brew their own stuff and it is fantastic.

Well the bad news is that Colorado isn't doing that well this year with snow. If it was possible to change your trip to Tahoe, Mammoth, or maybe the PNW you might be better off. However, if you can't, I"m sure you will still have a great time.

Now with that said, I've got about 16 days in so far this season I think. I haven't been to Breck yet, but I haven't heard great things about their conditions thus far. I've been to BC, Vail, ABasin, and Keystone so far this season. I only went to Abasin early season, so I can't comment on their conditions right now. BC and Vail are much better than Keystone though by far as conditions are concerned. I'm assuming they are probably better than Breck as well. I could be wrong though.

If you want to ride groomers, you can pretty much go anywhere and it will be ok. Otherwise, I would say stick to BC or Vail. If you want something a little smaller and more laid back, I would suggest ABasin or Loveland.

Or you could go to the french bakery toward the southside of town get a much better crepe and not stand outside in the cold.
