Skiing Breckenridge.. any Tips?
Taking the son out to ski president's day week and was looking for tips as far as good places to eat. We'll be staying in the village near main street.

Also looking for any tips on finding discount lift tickets. Looking for 4 day lift pass.

Denver (and Frisco) supermarkets have 1 day discount lift tickets, but I think they're still pretty pricey.

Check Liftopia or an advanced 4-day pass through Breck's site.

I'm going out that following weekend with a few of my friends. We went to Breck for 5 or 6 straight years. This year we're going to stay in Dillon and try to hit Vail one day, Winter Park another and then one day at either Keystone or Breck, whichever seems to have better conditions.

I am really low maintenance when it comes to food, and I tend to gravitate toward brewpubs and bar/grills. I love Breckenridge Brewery. The beer is awesome and the food is passable.

I remember liking a burger I had at Downstairs at Eric's.

I'm not even sure if we ate at the Gold Pan Saloon, but it was a pretty cool place.

Don't hit an AIDS tree. You'll never hear the end of it.

If you want the locals to think you're cool, be sure to wear your Chiefs gear.

We have been to a place called "Erics Downunder" several times. Sports bar with really good food. Its always been busy. The lift tickets wil not be cheap !

Could that be "Downstairs at Eric's"? I've heard from several others they have great pizza and decent prices.

There's a good pizza place one block off the main drag, slightly up the hill (away from the creek).
