I am thinking about going to Colorado, early March and doing a ski area blitz, skiing as many places as I can in a week. I did some digging and found there are 7 ski areas near (including) Copper: Copper Mtn to A Basin 23.3 mi, 29 min, Copper Mtn to Keystone 18.5 mi, 24 min, Copper Mtn to Breckenridge 18.6 mi, 28 min, Copper Mtn to Vail, CO 21.3 mi, 26 min, Copper Mtn to Loveland 21.8 mi, 24 min, Copper Mtn to Beaver Creek 30.6 mi, 34 min.
I have read that Breck and Vail are not worth it on the weekends, some places charge for parking, etc. I'm looking for tips, input, opinions on trying this, which areas/trails/lifts may be best, or if you have tried a blitz and whether you thought it was worth it. I'd like to ski every one of those areas but wonder if I can even grasp all the terrain available if I only do one day at each. I'm older (62) former Patroller (advanced/expert depending on the day & the hill). I like fast cruisers and the occasional short bump run. I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks.
