Me and my boyfriend are intermediate-advanced riders and we're planning a trip to copper and either winter park or aspen ski areas. we'll probably have a total of 3 days for riding. money is not an issue.. the real question is about the snow, the crowds, the intermediate and advanced runs, and the atmosphere in general. We live in Crested Butte so we snowboard a lot, but it's a pretty small mountain, especially for people that can't ride double blacks. Although we don't have a lot of crowds.. so we would like to go somewhere without crowds. I used to live in Breck and i enjoyed the longer intermediate runs and the fact that it was a bigger mountain. Recommendations??

I personally love Keystone (have the Summit Pass), as it's spread out and tons of fun, long runs to do. It's rairly packed, especially on a weekday.

If I had some days to take off and unlimited money, I'd go ski at Vail. It's the largest ski area in the US, over 5000 acres. Over 30 lifts and some great back country.

Thankfully (and finally) every Summit County ski area has received snow in the past week as well as WP.
I am a skier, not a rider so this is second hand info... the riders I know don't care so much for Winter Park. They say there are too many flat areas.
Copper Mtn. is my favorite ski area and I see lots of riders there. I haven't skied Aspen.
Have you looked at the trail maps for each resort?

I work for CB so I have the Real Deal ski pass.. meaning I can't go to any Vail resorts for free, but I can go to WP, Copper, Aspen, etc.

we just went to WP with a friend who is a boarder and he said that the flat parts were a bummer but all the flats were kind of one side and the other side he loved (by MJ? I think)
