Breckenridge Trip - recommendations

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am taking my first trip out west in 2 weeks! I am an aggressive skier and enjoy all terrain - groomers, woods, and powder.  Any recommendations on trails to hit up at Breck? Also, thinking about taking a trip to Vail.

If you want to ski groomers go to peak 7 almost all of the trails are blues on 7. Breck does not have very good trees but peak 10 serviced by the falcon super chair has a run called the burn on it. The burn is a area that was burned by a fire so it is fairly open for a tree run and is on the steep side. At this time of year it might have some rocks and stuff. Peak 10 also has many steep groomed blacks it is a great place to go fast. As far as powder goes some of the best snow is high up on the mountain. Imperial on peak 8 and the T-bar on peak 7 both service the higher part of the mountain. Horseshoe bowl serviced by the T-bar will probably be your best bet for softer snow though whales tail off imperial also has good snow many days. Peak 8 and 9 both have a variety of runs and are probably a good place to start. Their are signs all over the mountain to direct you between peaks. If you are going from peak 9 to 8 on the super connect you will pass a mid load station look at the runs after the mid load station some of them are very interesting and there are not many lines at the mid load station. Please ask me if you have any more questions.
