So I am East Coast skier coming from New Jersey (Ski Belleayre in New York State and Mount Snow in Vermont). I am flying out third week this January to ski Breckenridge on Thursday, January 21 through Saturday, January 23. Can't wait. I snow boarded in Vail many years ago in powder but have given up snow boarding in the East Coast due to ice. I am in my third year of skiing thanks to my girls getting me back into the sport. I am intermediate level and can ski double blacks here.
Some questions -
What Breck trail should we start with? Maybe a warm up.
What is the easiest peak to drop in off of?
The far out forecast is showing 0 degrees at night and goes up to 21 during the day with 4 mph winds and 9mph gusts. Do you consider this a cold day at Breck. Wind is low so I am thinking it should be fine. We spent last year in NY skiing 7 to 11 degrees with 20mph winds typically - Trying to avoid bringing my super cold weather coat and using sub layers with shell.
AND, a very important question - How much are my beers going to cost? What is best place to hang there for breaks/lunch/après?
