Located about 13 miles west of Vail in Avon, Colorado, the Beaver Creek Resort is the newer kid on the block. Still, since it opened in 1980 Beaver Creek has earned a reputation as a premier ski destination. BC offers winter travelers 1,815 acres of skiable terrain (about half of which is devoted to novice and intermediate skiers), 150 trails and 4,040 feet of vertical rise.
Beaver Creek is a medium sized resort relative to other Colorado ski resorts. The terrain is serviced by 23 lifts which includes 2 gondolas and an abundance of high- speed quad chairs. The vertical drop is a massive 3,340 ft, although the full vertical of BC cannot be skied continuously.
Beaver Creek has an abundance of wide groomed trails, so it’s particularly well suited to beginners and intermediates, or those that just want to cruise. Intermediate slopes make up 30% of the terrain, and the grooming are exceptionally good. Grooming occurs 24/7 and an amazing amount of corduroy is made each and every day!
Beaver Creek receives an average of 310 inches of Colorado powder per season, and many of the slopes have a northerly orientation so the snow stays in good shape. If the snow Gods aren’t happy, BC can make huge amounts of artificial snow. Remarkably, 705 acres (39%) of terrain has snow-making capabilities.
Alternative activities to downhill skiing and snowboarding include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hot air ballooning, dog sledding, ice skating, tubing, or a visit to a day spa for some R and R.
Don’t forget…your 5-day pass allows you to spend a day on the slopes at Vail. As North America’s fourth largest ski area, Vail’s terrain will please every level of skier or snowboarder. The resort’s vast 5,289 acres offers wide-open, pristine bowl skiing, a plethora of meandering intermediate trails, multiple beginner areas and plenty of steep and deep terrain in the Back Bowls and Blue-Sky Basin to keep expert skiers satisfied. Vail is just a short shuttle ride away…experience it for yourself!
Our home away from home will be the Ridgepoint Townhomes which are set in the lower bench of Beaver Creek Resort, referred to as “The Valley”, among peaceful rolling foothills and a forest of tall spruce trees. Village Transportation provides complimentary shuttle service to Beaver Creek Village, making it just minutes away. Guests of Ridgepoint enjoy an outdoor Jacuzzi and a sauna room year-round. Ridgepoint offers beautiful three-bedroom townhomes with lofts. The spacious homes feature vaulted ceilings, fireplaces, complimentary wireless Internet, washer and dryers, two decks and complimentary parking. Guests of East West Resorts have added amenities including complimentary access to The Club at Allegria at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, on-site front desk and check-in and full concierge.
So, we know that Beaver Creek is Vail’s little sister, living in the shadow of that massive mountain 10 miles to the east. And, don’t forget Beaver Creek’s famed Birds of Prey racecourse, one of the most intimidating and challenging on the Alpine Skiing World Cup circuit. How about those covered escalators throughout the village ready to whisk guests straight to the chair lifts.
However, do you know the one thing that really sets Beaver Creek resort apart? COOKIE TIME! Every day at 3pm you will find chefs and volunteers at the bottom of lift 6, right in the heart of Beaver Creek Village, handing out freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Now that is the perfect way to end a day on the slopes.
