dude fuck google maps, im certain they make concessions for some traffic, occasional stoplights, and they definitely factor in speed limit...im positive ive made breck from DIA in under 1.5 hours before.

Don't you love how all these people from out of state are trying to give us advice on how long it takes to get from place to place in Colorado? DIA to Breck is over 100 miles. About 20 miles of that is on a 2 lane road. You would need to average a little over 70mph, including the part on the two lane road which is not going to happen in most cases.
To love the times we have
To like what makes us sad
To live when others die
To lose and say goodbye
To last until our moment comes
you're also forgetting about the cops that usually linger around evergreen and georgetown, random traffic in idaho springs, and the usual asshole in the passing lane going 10mph under the speed limit going down the hill after you get through eisenhower!
i would say DIA to breck is a healthy 90-100 minutes worth of driving, easily more.
im gunna be in denver for a week in february, and im wondering where would be the best place to ski vs. the commute. im thinking a-basin. i'm an east coaster so pretty much anything will satisfy me. you natives think a-basin is a good choice?
a-basin, loveland, echo for park. they are all good choices. all real close and fun.
You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours!-JEA
yup, just being honest. don't get me wrong a-basin is fun on a powder day, but keystone will be your best all around bet for a mix of everything. breck would be fun too, but its usually always windier/colder/more crowded there compared to keystone. check out both if you can. and eat at rasta pasta on main street in breck. tasty food.
