Thanks for the tips.  I am not sure how our host plans on driving/parking, but I'll certainly pass on the tips.  Leaving tomorrow, needless to say, today is draggggggiiiinnnnggggg.....

Terrain at BC is much more limited than at Vail, and I personally don't get the attraction of BC, but that's just me (well, me and pretty much everybody else I ski with, but what do we know?).  4 days skiing at BC is way more time than I'd give it, and it would be a mistake to miss out on Vail, IMHO.  So, for you I'd recommend 2 days at BC and 2 days at Vail (maybe pass on Vail on the weekend).  Actually, I'd recommend 4 days at Vail and 0 at BC, but I'd probably get flamed if I said that, so I won't.

For me BC  has great bump runs, hidden away glades, no lines and friendly workers. In addition, on powder days, its not skied off by noon.

Back to the beav' I didn't see it listed so if you are on the mountain, go over to the "dusty boot" its over by the Hyatt on the second level. They have good food, good beers on tap and it's very reasonable. Good tex-mex and such.

Thanks!

Vin48 in Avon was great the one time I ate there...seems like Vail has gotten more snow than BC this year, so don't rule it out.

I agree. We went to Vail/BC over break, originally intending to ski 3 days at Vail and 2 at BC. Ended up skiing 1 BC and 4 Vail with no regrets. Stayed in Avon at the Christie and took the bus to Vail. Rode the Westin Gondola to lower BC Mountain Express and on up.
