So the fam and I are heading out to Breck in March. I've skied Keystone before, many years ago, but never been anywhere else in CO. Only other place I've skied in the west is in Idaho...Being from Atlanta, I stick with the east coast due to cost and travel time. But I convinced everyone to pack up for a week and head west...
I fancy myself an intermediate/advanced skier who is comfortable on most (but not) everything the east has to offer. I'm planning on taking a few lessons while at Breck to work on my technique and I've searched around on Epic and found who to contact and such for that. The rest of the fam are basically novices; they've skied before but its been years and I know the first few days for them will be spent at Breck relearning everything. So part of the time I'll be skiing with them and part of it will be spent doing what I can handle.
But my question is about the other resorts around Breck. Our lift tickets for the week include Breck, Keystone, Copper, AB, BC, and Vail (I think...) so I'm wondering where I should spend most of my time other than Breck (where we're staying). Which resorts are best as far as terrain variety, lack of crowds (I know it will be spring break...), and overall x-factor. Any secret local tips would be appreciated!
