i went to brekenridge a few years back and the slopes were great for intermediate skiiers/ boarders. Although the elevation was hard to get used to and took me half a week to feel better. It was also quite crowded, and made it hard for the ski school to keep watch of all the kids. now i go to copper and it is much better. there are a lot less people there for show and looks. Crowds are low and you do not have to wait in lines more than 5 mins.
