Got back on Sunday from Summit County. Had a great time. Skied Copper, Vail, Breck and did Loveland on the way to the airport. My favorite was Vail then Copper, was a little disappointed with Breck, Peak 8 & 9 were a little monotonous, but Peak 10 wasw a lot of fun, so we stayed there most of the day.
Vail was sweet. Thanks Uncle Louie et al for the info there, you saved us a lot of time. We stayed on the back side most of the day and was able to find a little powder here and there. Coverage was an issue in some spots though.
We went to copper the first day and had 4" of fresh. Liked Copper a lot. The runs off of Amer. Flyer were harder than anything we skied at peaks 8 & 9 at Breck.
Stayed at Frisco Lodge and highly recommend it. They even had a tuning shop right in the building (maybe standard for Summit county?). Best food was at the Boathouse and Moosejaw (for burgers).
Anyway, thanks to all for your advice. You really had a positive influence on this trip.
ALSO, Frontier Airlines has a great ticket deal with Copper & Winter Park: you get 2 for 1 lift tickets with your boarding pass stub (M-F).
