As far as i'm concerned, once the snow really starts falling, Breck is a fantastic place to board or ski. It doesnt really matter which resort you go to between Vail, Breck, Aspen, Copper, or Winterpark, Colorado has the best snow. The thing i like about Breck inparticular is the terrain parks. for good terrain, go to vail or aspen. for mostly rails, go to copper. Breck does tend to get a bit crowded and the lines can be tedious at the bottom of the mountain.
As for right now, 18" of snow at the base is pathetic. this is especially pathetic due to the fact that a large amount of it is man-made and is mostly ice. I am not excited to go snowboarding tommorrow at Breck which is Nov 31 because of the conditions but if this had been more like last year, the snow would be outstanding. Wait untill Jan-Feb to really expect amazing snow. And to anyone talking jargin about the staff at Breckenridge Mountain, bite your tounge. They have a difficult job and they do fantastic, leave em alone if they seem to have an attitude. Its snobby vacationers who think they deserve special treatement that think they can tell the staff at Breck how to do there job. If you dont go to Aspen or Vail and dont love Breck, you are probably one of the idiots who aren't that good at skiing or snowboarding. All i ask is that you stay on the greens and not talk garbage about the staff at Breck. thankyou
