Full review

I like Breck very much, lots of slopes groomed and not. Restaurants always cleaned and up to speed. My concern is SAFETY: lift operators at the landing areas oftne do not prepare the area leaving the plastic dividers exposed which makes the landing ver difficult because they can catch the edge of the ski and then you are down, or worse becuase they slow your landing the chair could hit you. Normally this happens on specific chairs like 6 Chair and Superconnet. Formalized different complaints year after year but the situation does not improve. The other safety concern I have is that lowering the chair safety bar, now called footrest, is not enforced, this created the understanding that it is a sissy features so all the machos do not lower it which sometimes cause discussion on the chair among people with different opinion about it. On the other end VAIL resort dictate to all its employees to lower the bar anytime they are on it. In the rest of the world lowering the safety bar is obbligatory.
