I'll be heading to Summit County from Feb 21-March 8, and will be mostly skiing Breckenridge with some days at Abasin and Vail (Epic pass), and it would be great to make some turns with others who like to ski more challenging terrain and possibly some sidecountry.
As for my abilities, I am a competent skiier. At Breck in the past, I've spent most of my time in the trees off of peak 10, lapping the 6 chair or the imperial lift. I've comfortably skied needles eye, lake chutes, etc., so I'm generally game for skiing anything inbounds. This brings me to the next part...
I would really like to access the sidecountry at Breckenridge through the new gates at peak 10 and 7, but without a knowledgable partner I would stay away, due to my limited knowledge skiing backcountry.
I don't mind a hike so I'm all for bootpacking, and I have a day wrecker rig if need be.
