Beaver Creek Mountain Resort Guide
About Beaver Creek ski resort, mountain stats, lodging, restaurants and activities.
Beaver Creek ski resort is a private resort hidden by breathtaking views of bold mountains and clear blue sky. Nestled in one of the most scenic areas of the Colorado Rockies, photos of the mountain and its intimate alpine village look like they were taken out of a Norman Rockwell painting.
Since its opening in 1980, Beaver Creek has hosted many world cup races and ski championships and has been named a potential site for the winter Olympics. And it’s easy to see why with its 3,100 acres of fresh Colorado snow and over 300 days of sunshine. The resorts motto is, "Beaver Creek, Not exactly roughing it" and once you step foot on one of the many heated walkways in town or enjoy a trademark warm cookie you will know why.
Just as Beaver Creek is known for its world-renowned skiing, it is also known for its gourmet cuisine. Winning awards for its food, wine, service, and lodging, it’s easy to see why Beaver Creek resort allows you to sit in the lap of luxury. And if you didn't think the mountain could get any better, it does, being powered 100% by wind and recycling over one million pounds of material every year.
To ensure the softest terrain possible, Beaver Creek is groomed twenty hours a day, seven days a week. At the summit the elevation is 11,440 feet and there are 149 Trails ranging from Beginner's to Intermediate to Advance Terrain. With over 17 lifts, lines are never very long and with an annual snow fall of 310 inches, fresh powder is always available.
The mountain has four terrain parks, one for beginners, two progressive intermediate parks, and one for experts. They all contain jumps, rollers, tables, rails, and boxes and there is also an innovative park lesson program that helps aspiring park riders refine their skills. There is also the Half Barrel super pipe designed for the most adventurous and experienced skiers and boarders.
A great feature Beaver Creek has is on-mountain photography. They can capture your big air moments, a heartwarming family shot together on the summit, or your children’s eyes full of excitement as they glide down the slopes. You can make memories will last a lifetime and with photos you can share your memories with everyone.
Almost all lodging at Beaver Creek is ski accessible with skier bridges and connecting trails. Four villages sit at the base of the mountain, Beaver Creek village, Bachelor Gulch Village, and Arrowhead Village. All are linked together by heated walkways or ski bridges and all are full of quaint shops, fun bars, great art galleries, and mouth watering dining. There is also a village skating rink where families can enjoy night’s together gliding across the ice. Each village offers a complimentary shuttle service for all guests anywhere within the resort.
Beaver Creek is a fabulous place for a family vacation; in fact many guests make it a yearly tradition. Every night there is a different family mountain event including DJs, glow stick skiing, fireworks, and entertainment. Beaver Creek has a way of bringing families together--whether it be on the slopes or off, this resort is a must see adventure.
