Tuesday, March 14 - Breckenridge

Kevin, Fran, Rick and Greg

Today we ski Breckenridge.  Last night Rick and Kevin purchased their tickets online, only to save $7 each.  Francine and Greg were able to get the PSIA rate of $111.  (normally $179).  These are some of the most expensive tickets we have ever purchased.

We parked in the North Gondola lot, and the line was quite big, due to spring break and most of Texas being in Colorado.  We hopped the shuttle to the Peak 9 area, to avoid the crowds.  Breckenridge is certainly much bigger than Copper.  We had softer conditions today, and were able to explore off the groomers more today.  We tried to stay up higher on the mountain, to avoid the crowds at the base.  Even though there were lots of people on the hill, lines were managable and snow conditions were nice.  Rick was suffering from the altitude, we think from Sudafed and elevation.  Breckenridge was our favorite ski area of this trip.

Tomorrow is a rest day for Kevin, Francine and Greg.  Rick will probably ski tomorrow, as Bill, the house owner and another friend of Rick's, Vern will be skiing at Copper tomorrow, and Rick wants to see them.
