Thanks for your inputs. I am early 50 and learned to ski for the first time approximately 5 years ago. I have skied greens at Breck, Copper and Beaver. I am not a complete beginner, greens at Peak 9 (Breck) and Union creek (Copper) are easy for me. I like green at the top at Beaver but don't like the catwalk from mid mountain. To avoid catwalk, I skied little blue in between green to get down the mountain, it was a little challenge for me but it was not over my head (because it is short distance). To avoid catwalk at Vail, I can ride the gondola down, right?
I am also looking at Keystone, I like to ride the gondola all the way to top of mountain but I heard the greens at Keystone are more like blue at Breck. How are the greens compared to Vail and Beaver. Among of the resorts I visited, so far I like Beaver the most, free parking, quick shuttle pick up and drop off, groomed middle of day. My kids also liked BC, they are intermediate skier but still beginner snowboarder.
Previous Spring break we stayed close to the resort. This time we will stay in Dillon and have the car. That being said, should I give Vail a try or just stick with BC? How about Keystone to shorten the commute?
One more question, one friend in our group wants to drive to Steamboat for one day. It is approximately 2 hours from Dillon in a perfect driving condition. Are we crazy?
