    Spent a very cold week in early March in the MRV. Also manage a few quick overnights up there. Did your plans materialize?

    And Eldora is GREAT when they get a dump...the back bowls there are excellent.

    Compare/Contrast:
    In Boulder, it doesn't go subzero for a couple of weeks every year in January. Most midwinter days, a fall jacket will do. When I lived in Burlington, I can remember a number of weeks where the high for the week was -2F.

    You just can't compare the local ski areas. Bolton Valley vs Eldora? Stowe & MRG/Sugarbush vs the Front Range? Size. Terrain. Average snow quality. Availability of back country. Boulder wins.

    Burlington sits on a fairly large lake. It's green all summer. Boulder turns brown in June from lack of rain and stays that way all summer.

    Everybody in Boulder is from California. Everybody in Burlington is from New York. The only thing they have in common is the Birkenstocks with similar freakin' hippie density.

    Pearl Street in Boulder is a fine example of how to do a pedestrian mecca. Church Street is pretty laughable.

    Boulder is so much more affluent that the restaurant scene is really good. It's a great place to be on expense account.

    Both places suffer from the blight of uncontrolled suburban sprawl. Because Boulder sits on prarie land with no trees, it's more jarring.

    Boulder wins the microbrew contest about just about anyplace.
    I think the poster meant that the "vibe" was like Burlington on Steroids.....lots of "crunchies" there....a la burlington.
