You can have Keystone and Breck. For you own safety, don't ski there on weekends. Already 1 death at Keystone this season. Too many Front Rangers(folks from DEN)

I leave for Vail on Wednesday for 2 weeks. Can't wait !

I'm afraid the problem isn't front rangers, it's tourists from back east. Your 'front rangers' have been skiing all their life. Having seen both sides of the equation (living in CO and in the South), Coloradians hate seeing a TX license plate as much as someone in the south who sees, say, a NY plate.

I'm not sure how long ago you lived there but the crowds are much,much worse since Vail Resorts(owners of Breck and Key.) flooded the market with season passes for $329 !

The best resorts in Summit Cty, A-Basin and Copper. I keep teaching at Vail and Beaver Creek cauz the tips are better.
