Long lines at every lift, terrain is not as good as other resorts nearby.

Breckenridge was the most disappointing experience I've had at a ski resort. We have skied at many places in the western mountains, but this was the most overrated place we have gone. The intermediate terrain would probably be classified as beginner terrain at most other parks. We skied the black diamonds on Peak 10 the whole second day, and we never ski black diamonds anywhere else. We went the week between Christmas and New Years (actually 12/27 through 1/3), so I expected long lines, but the lines seemed to be longer at Breck than at Keystone and much longer than at A-Basin. In fact the lines were almost non-existent at A-Basin, which is where we ended up skiing most of the trip because it was so much fun. I can't imagine ever wanting to go back to Breckenridge.
