Help-December ski vacation

My girlfriend and I are trying to plan a December ski vacation and have been looking at several spots. We have narrowed some choices down to Keystone Colorado, Breckenridge Colorado, and Beaver Creek Colorado. We don't get to vacation much so we want a really nice vacation with beautiful amenities and scenery. I was wondering if anyone could give input on which is better, or the pro's and con's of of all these places. If you have any other destination advice please feel free to add links and suggestions. Thank You!

All three mountains will have plenty of terrain for the beginner to advanced skier/boarder. When it comes to ski-able acres Beaver Creek is the smallest followed by Breck and Keystone is the largest.

Beaver Creek is the most intimate and "high end" of the three when it comes to the village or base area where most of the action is in these ski resorts. Keystone is newer and larger and has more critical mass while Breckenridge is a small town and has the most to do at night.

If you are looking for bars and partying at night, then Keystone/Breck would be your answer. Both Keystone and Breck are very close to each other so you could stay at one and visit the other very easy.

Beaver Creek is near Vail which offers quite a bit to do as well.

If this is a romantic trip I would personally pick Beaver Creek and then go enjoy a couple evenings down in Vail for dinner and a stroll around. If you are looking for more terrain and more hopping night life then Breck/Keystone area is a better choice.

Also consider that if you go to Beaver Creek you can fly right into Edwards, CO which makes traveling there very easy. To get to Keystone/Breck you can either fly into Edwards but your drive is a bit longer (1 hour in good weather) or drive up from Denver.

What kind of trip were you envisioning?
