Park City (Deer Valley) question-

I haven’t skied since college and have a 10,6, and 5 year old. I have an opportunity to get a room free here but don’t want to break the bank on a trip. My wife has skied once and my kids never have.

My 10 year old has a sensory disorder and probably wont do more than a bunny slope the whole time. For 3 day lift ticket for all of us it’s $2100 for lift tickets plus $180/half day for lessons for kids. Does this sound right or is there a place for kids w/o lift tickets?

Yeah, but you’ll always have that elevation in CO to preserve snow.

Lake Tahoe itself is at 6,000 ft (makes me wonder about the future).

I’m thinking a pattern change should begin around end of Jan bringing storms again. This has been a paltry year so far.

The price sounds about right.

If you aren’t set on location, Keystone has Kids Ski Free for under 12 if you stay on mountain.

I skied winter park this weekend. It was a noticeable difference vs the last few weeks. There are spots that are still holding good snow but there were a lot more icey and thin spots. Panoramic just opened. The runs below the tree line were great, above the tree line were wind blown and slick.

My days this year at Vail have been pretty good but they were after a snowfall.

I am excited that Pano is open, was worried for a while that it wasn't going to be...Hopefully there is still some good snow left. Guess I'll have to deal with some ice/rocks but coming from the Midwest I'll just be happy to be skiing.

I am pumped for Vail, wasn't orginally going to be a part of this trip but everything worked out to get a day in there.

But you have to book through Keystone. VRBO wont qualify.

Correct. Even if kids tickets are $100 and you only get one per adult, $200/day goes pretty far for lodging at Keystone.

We're heading to Keystone the weekend before Mardi Gras. Besides Keystone, we're considering skiing some other areas nearby. Is Loveland usually busy on weekends? How does it compare to Keystone?

Loveland isn’t a resort like keystone. It shouldn’t be as busy. I freaking love loveland though. You won’t pay $10 for a beer or $15 for a sandwich at Loveland. Good terrain in the bowls too.

My kids and wife are "green only" skiers. Would Loveland be ok for them?

Was able to get up Pano once today, after that wind shut it down.
Snow was alright to start with but things got pretty scraped up by the end of the day. Might get some snow tonight but also a ton of wind with it. Winter Park is great though, didn't really wait at all for lifts. Covid restrictions are much tighter than Big Sky but I expected that.

Loveland is a perfect area for greens. We learned how to ski there and it was a blast. Tons of fun easy groomers. The atmosphere is also very laid back and relaxed. I highly recommend it!

The snow projections show a little dusting each day which is better than the nothing expected at the start of the week. We need a major storm real bad.

No lift lines... on Saturday, Pano and Sunnyside were just one big mob. Enjoy the week days

The left side of Breck has some great greens. If you don’t mind getting there early and paying for parking, Beaver Run Parking is a $25 and right next to the lift.

Take the wife and kids to a Breck. Enjoy a true ski town and its skiing.

I grew up skiing Breck and it's where my kids learned to ski. In my opinion, its one of the best laid out mountains you will find. I still get to enjoy it from time to time but the wife doesn't ski and Vail offers more off mountain than Breck. We will be skiing Park City for the first time this year which I'm hoping is similar to Vail off and on Mountain.

Normally we go to Crested Butte, but changing it up this year and doing Steamboat. Are LT normally $199 for adults or is that a COVID thing to makeup for lower skiers. $199 is the same as Vale and Beaver Creek and more than Telluride and Breck. With kids factored in, Steamboat will be double the price of Crested Butte.

Steamboat as a mountain does not seem worthy of that price point, am I wrong? First time to SS.

All the big resorts are $200-ish per day. Buying ahead and multiple days will reduce that number a bit. A season pass has a less than 4 day breakeven vs window rates.

What’s the status of eating lunch on the mountain at Breck (either at the base or up on the mountain)? I usually like to go in, grab a table and a bite to eat for lunch, but I’m assuming covid has changed some of the social distancing of sitting inside, etc....
Anyone been lately and know the deets? Skiing Breck this Sat-Mon

Some places will have limited seating inside. Most resorts only have pre packaged food to go. No gathering inside but feel free to join the mob of people just outside the lodge and in the lift lines.
