OK, so we are going to a condo on Lake Dillon this month- the 25th for 3 days of skiing. We have been to A-Basin, Breck, and Keystone a couple of times and love skiing all of them. We haven't been for a few years since we have been mainly skiing Utah.
So, where should we go? I mean we could certainly be more than happy with the 3 I just mentioned, but I know Vail and Copper are also nearby. We would have to throw one of the 3 out if we choose Vail or Copper. Is it worth the drive/expense to try Vail?
Second question: Where are the best lift ticket deals? I tried Liftopia and they only had A-Baisn tix for $67. Thats a great deal, but then I was looking at the vail pass which lets you ski any of the 4 mountains. Problem is, it's $342 per person for three days. Now thats more than $100 per day per person. But I guess I could get a 2 day ticket and get the A-Basin for $67? Are there ski shops that still sell discounted tickets?
Third question: It looks like CO is getting a crap-load of snow this season. Is that the case? Hows the skiing?
Bonus Question: Will the cat skiing be available at Keystone at that time? We have been twice- once in the early and once in the late season. Neither time they were running the cats.
