Planning on celebrating my 40th with a ski trip to Colorado February 13-18th 2013. We have EPIC pass, so we are looking for recommendations as to which resort to pick. My wife is an intermediate/advanced skier who is comfortable on any groomed trail. I am an advanced snowboarder and enjoy trees, bowls and powder.
I've been looking at Vail, Breck, Beaver Creek, Keystone and even Frisco for accommodations. What are the crowds going to be like? Which resort handles the Holiday crowds the best? If we only ski Vail one day are we going to wish we had spent more time there? Is it possible to do multiple resorts without renting a car? Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
