Breckenridge's forest service permit requires then to close for elk calving and migratory habitat reasons. Feel free to hike it though.
Having fun skiing on 6 continuous months of man made snow on Supahstah at Killington. Breck made snow for 3 weeks this year and if their permit allowed could probably still be 100% open. Sorry, but even as an east coaster with pride, nothing out there can compare. Maybe Tucks, but that's it. period.
For all the complainers, a good chunk of you are the problem trying to time the exact day. For instance, Saturday was a great day, just as much snow, no lift lines more than a few minutes tops, all day and tons of beach fun. Next time get up early (lots of parking available before 8) or don't bitch when everyone like you shows up to the only place open expecting it all to yourself.
So many crybabies... If you really thought that a powder day on the only open mountain in Colorado wasn't going to be crowded, then you must be new to skiing... All in all, it was a great day. Never waited in more than 5 minute lines at Zuma all day. Most of mountain was ski'd off by 11 or noon (front side seemed to be done by 10), but there was still powder to be found by the East Wall
