    Name that Colorado Ski Resort

    Random but trying to figure out where this photo was taken to settle a bet. My guess is Breck but not sure.

    Hard to be sure, but it looks like a poma lift. That leaves breck (all pomas pretty much) as a possibility, and cuts out the beav (all dopplmayr).

    I think fast Fred is correct with breck but it could also be at copper on the American flyer lift ?

    under the flyer? It sure is. Maybe you're mixing it up with the Eagle.

    X2 on the Flyer being that flat, but having ridden the Flyer yesterday, I can't think of any spot that quite looks like that.

    Damn, we were there too.

    Definitely not the flyer. Pretty sure that is Silverton, judging by the steepness of terrain and the presence of gnar gnar.


    (That or fastfred is right and it's the Beaver Run Superchair)

    ok ok ok

    let me be clear breckenridge lower mtn flat vs everywhere else (hasn't this been argued for decades?)
    copper's lower mtn is much steeper than breck my opinion, but then again I don't ski
    I'm sure some of you nerds get a get the actual gradiant and all that good shit and next thing we will all know that copper is 3% steeper than breck right?

    The best clue is the snow gun next to the lift tower.

    Upper Breck is sick. Ivanís, Spine Line and Wacky Timís are as hard as anything inbounds at Jackson Hole. Yeah, I said it.

    don't turn this into a love fest for breck thread, all the haters are going to come out if you do

    I'll look tomorrow if I remember and see if that's the lift and the snow gun, the problem is I wont' remember

    Youíre right. Breck sucks. Cold, windy and full of Texans.

    why do you need to know
    It's beaver run, but this is after it crosses paths with super connect, not right after the loading station.
