I read some of the negative reviews and just laugh, laugh, laugh. You people just have no clue what you are talking about. Steamboat is better than Vail? Ha, um no! Guess you don't know where to go at Vail then for good terrain. Took me years to find the good hidden stashes NO ONE knows about. I've lived in Colorado for all my 28 years. Rule #1: STAY OFF I-70 ON THE WEEKENDS BETWEEN X-MAS THROUGH FEBRUARY! If you are complaining about I70 on the weekends, then welcome to Colorado, now please leave and quit overpopulating our beautiful state. Vail is overpriced, but for a reason. If you are complaining about the costs that much then you obviously are vacationing out of your means. Go to Keystone, Brek, or Copper if you want to see lower prices. Vail is expensive and it's still packed. If they were cheap, the place would be so packed you'd get 1 run in all day.
