Vail or Breck tomorrow? 01/12/13

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Driving up from Denver for the day,  Wife is staying home because it will be very cold so it will  be a all out ski day. Any news on conditions? Have the epic local pass and we usually ski Breck or Keystone.  Vail or Breck?  Also where is there free parking at Vail?  Thanks,

the only free parking I know of in Vail is on the side of the frontage road over in West Vail across from the Safeway. There's a bus stop there. The Bus is free and will take you to lionshead and then to vail village.

 

And Vail was skiing really good a week ago. Or you could even go try Beaver Creek. There they have free parking.

We go to Beaver Creek often.  My wife loves the groomers!  Would like to try Vail I think.

Dress warm!  It was pretty cold this afternoon and tomorrow is suppose to be colder.  

 

I`d go with Vail but will pass on these safety tips from my last two morning meetings-

 

Yesterday- If its brown, ski around

Today- Just because its white, doesn`t make it right.  (aka 4" on top of rocks can be more dangerous than being able to see the rocks or bare patches)

 

Today the ~5:30 am morning report said 0", but much of the mountain had 4" or more by 10 am, then the snow mostly tapered off.  The only new snow for Saturday will be the "overnight" portion of the report as everything that fell during the day will have been skied down.

 

The snow we got helped soften things up, but the base was pretty firm and thin- enjoy but be careful.
