I am staying in BC for 4 days, Jan Sunday 4 - Thursday 8, just after New Year's, so hopefully a bunch of the crowds will be gone. I am planning on skiing at BC for 2 days and 2 days at Vail. I am an advanced/expert skier and my wife is an intermediate skier.
She did a bunch of blue runs at Taos last year plus a couple of low level black runs.
I am wondering what are some of the better blue runs for her to ski at both resorts.
I am looking for expert runs to ski at both. I know about Stone Creek Chutes, Birds of Prey and Royal Elk Glades at BC. Are there any other runs I should be hitting up that will test me? I have hiked and skied Kachina Peak and Highline RIdge at Taos and have hiked and skied Headwall and Casper Bowl at Jackson Hole. Just to give a reference to my ski ability.
I have heard that Vail is not as steep as BC, is this true???
What are the to do runs at Vail?? I have been hearing about Blue Sky Basin, Back Bowls, Highline Express Lift, Northwood Express Lift and runs under Gondola Run.
I am also interested in fun runs as well, where my wife and I can both ski together.
Thanks for your help with my requests.
Hope we all have an epic ski season.
