    I've never skied Breckenridge, but it always cracks me up when people rip these western places apart given they're likely 5x better than all the eastern places we ski. Same conversation happens with Park City/Canyons, Keystone, Beaver Creek, Steamboat, and a bunch of other places, etc..

    They're not 5x better. A solid 3x better without any doubt. ANY doubt.

    So after taking into consideration all your advice I settled on an entire week with a condo at Beaver Creek. I figured I should be there in the middle of the week so why not make it a full week. I bought the Epic Local Pass and plan to do couple days at Vail and the rest at Beaver Creek. Thanks for the input , my kids and I are looking forward to it!

You can lap it all day long at any time of the year. (Which I did Christmas weekend with no line) I've skied almost all of the toughest terrain in VT and that E chair at Breck is as good as anything you'll see here in East excluding Needle's Eye which the East has nothing to compare with if your talking an on the map lift served trail.

    Sure Breckenridge has flat areas but so do a lot of resorts. The only Vail owned mountain in CO that has more challenging terrain than Breckenridge is Crested Butte. (And Crested Butte has everyone beaten by a lot)
    Great explanation - in line with my response to you earlier. The tone in this post is totally different from your earlier post. Also where in the east can one do cornice drops? The first time I did was at A Basin and it was out of my norm (pucker factor) - but they are fun as heck and Breck has lots of them!

    Some people are so into the challenge of terrain which most of us want but man the beginning and end of season must be friggin boring - I just want I be out anywhere on the mountain. Low snow seasons must drive some crazy.

    Note: the third steepest run in Colorado is at Breckinridge. Crazy Ivan 2 part of lake chutes.

    Good move! Your really going to love Beaver Creek that mountain has terrain for everyone along with lots of great restaurants, we liked it better than Vail. Try the Saddleridge restaurant when your out there. It's a very cool, unique spot. I thought it was much better than Beano's Cabin which was kind of an overpriced tourist trap.
