I was able to set up a business meeting in Vail and I am taking the opportunity to get a couple of days skiing in. It is a dinner meeting in Vail, so I'll most likely ski Vail the next day. I'm staying at the Westin Beaver Creek. The next day I am open, I have a 7pm flight out of Denver so that is the only consideration. I haven't skied Colorado in 20 years. The last time I was there, I skied Vail, Beaver Creak, Copper Mountain, and Keystone. From what I remember, Vail was big, but lacked steeps. Could be because I didn't know where to go. It seemed liked anything rated a double diamond was a bump run. Beaver Creek was similar, but it was an epic powder day so it didn't really matter what the terrain was. Copper had some steeper terrain, but had to hike to get there. I don't remember much about Keystone.
My preferred terrain is steep chutes, glades and bowls. I actually prefer wind blown over powder. Most of my days are at Mammoth, which is probably why I have this preference. For perspective, my favorite runs at Mammoth are Avy Chutes, patrol line on Climax and Paranoids.
Assuming I ski Vail the first day, I am open to anything the second day. I have not booked the accommodations the second night. I was thinking maybe Breckenridge, but I don't really know anything about it.
Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.
