Going to Breckenridge, CO in March for a skiing trip with my family. I'm from Florida. Never even been on a ski before. Never been to Colorado before. Been in snow, but not this much for this long (a week). I have a Canon rebel. While everyone is going to go ski, my main goal (shhh) is to take pictures...the PROBLEM is that I will be with 11 other people. We will be flying into Denver and taking a rental van to Breck. So I won't have any transportation once there. I have looked online, I am interested in anything cool there - but everything I find is ski-related. I would like to know if there is anything there I should know about, photography-wise. Historical, scenic, etc. I guess I am too limited though since I won't have any of my own transport. Maybe there is a park or something nearby, that I could take a bus to? I have no idea. Scenic "overlooks?" Old buildings/graveyards nearby? anything historical (other than the downtown itself)? Wanted to go to Estes Park and see The Stanley, but already been told that's too far. Also, will my camera and gear be OK in like a leather backpack/purse for the trip? It will be cold there but I think my gear should be ok. Any general tips for snow photography? I have a polarizer. OH - and I KNOW that March is not the best time for color and scenics and whatnot, but that's when I'll be there. Thanks!
