Best home base for a vacation in Summit County any time of year. I wouldn't want to stay in any other town in the mountains because Breck has the coolest town by far and it's filled with happy, friendly, genuine people. Keystone and Copper are owned by the resorts...there's no genuine town there. Vail is another good home base, but it's expensive, and I found the people rude and unfriendly every time I've been there. My advice: stay in Breck for a week, and take day trips to ski other resorts in the area to mix things up.
