And with the end of the season approaching ResortQuest is offering some incredible lodging deals including the Spring Fever Buy One Get One promotion. Stay two nights, pay for just one night, stay three nights, pay just two nights, and so on.
- Beginners – Breckenridge - Check out the Silverthorne run. This casual green cruiser on Peak 9 can be accessed from the Quicksilver lift. It is perfect for skiers and riders that are looking to take it easy and not have to worry about ending up on a more advanced trail. It goes to the base of Peak 9 where you can stop in to the Quandary Grill on the Main Street Station plaza for a quick bite to eat before heading back onto the slopes. See lodging next to Quicksilver. Keystone – Get on Schoolmarm. This is a very long green run that winds its way across Keystone Mountain and will give you a sweet, easy way to get down the hill.
- Intermediate – Breckenridge - Loaded with nothing but mellow blue runs, lower Peak 7 is the perfect place for intermediate skiers, or as a warm up for advanced and expert snow riders before getting on the black and double-black runs. For the wider, easier blue runs try Wirepatch and Lincoln Meadows. If you want something a bit more challenging we recommend Northstar, Claimjumper or Pioneer. Keystone – When you are ready to step it up a notch give Wild Irishman a go. With the option of hitting bumps on one side of the trail and groomers on the other, the choice is yours as to how aggressive you want to be.
- Advanced – Breckenridge - For snow riders that want to challenge themselves without going overboard we recommend checking out Chair 6. Lines can be a bit long right after the opening bell, but it is worth the wait. There is a broad expanse of single-black runs that will keep you on your toes without getting too hairy for most people. When you get off the chair head hard left and go to Way Out. This run skirts the ski area boundary and is frequently un-tracked. Steep and fun! Keystone – Head back to the North Peak and hit Cat Dancer. With lots of bumps your legs will burn, but in a satisfying way.
- Expert – Breckenridge - For those that are ready for the ultimate Breckenridge challenge head up the Imperial lift and head over to Upper Peak 7. This stout traverse weeds out all but the most die-hard skiers and boarders, but is absolutely worth the effort. This terrain provides nothing but double-black terrain and will open your eyes to the joys of serious snow riding. As you get farther over you will hit Whales Tale, which takes you right down the guts of the bowl. You might have to go back to lower Peak 7 for a well deserved break. Keystone – One of the best parts of Keystone Resort is its fabulous tree skiing. They pulled out all of the stops when it came to creating beautiful gladed runs that go on forever. Some of the best of these are in the Black Forest on The Outback. Runs include Bushwhacker, Badger and The Grizz. These are for experts only, but if you qualify, definitely check these out.
