My response to all of the whiners is this: Please do not come back to Breckenridge. What type of conditions do you expect to encounter when we have only 1/3 the normal snowfall that is normal this early in the season? Vail has not been able to open yet and has been sending their customers to Breck, which further overcrowded the place on a holiday weekend. I have been out only twice this season and the conditions were as I expected...lousy. We had fun and made the best of it, and when I got home, I got out the p-tex and filled in the chunks! Breckenridge was never my favorite place to ski, but now that I live here and with the opening of the Imperial Chair last year accessing great spots like Imperial Bowl, Whales Tail and Georges Thumb, I rarely go anywhere else.
