You're asking a question like "which is better, cats or dogs?". Define quality- do you like groomed terrain, steeps, trees, moguls, all of the above...? Luv2Ski is right- we don't know what your experience level is so can't get in your head about what quality means to you.

They are both fantastic in terms of the "quality of runs" and "quality of resort." The towns do "feel" a little different----there are many past posts about the differences between the two.

Both are great resorts, great towns and have great mountains (don't forget about Beaver Creek or Snowmass, respectively). You'll have a great time at either location.
