Beaver Creek Ski Holidays
Beaver Creek resort comes with the strap line ‘not exactly roughing it’. Luxury is a way of life here and it’s not just window dressing either: The mountain is deceptively extensive with some fantastic fall line skiing through the pretty aspen trees as well as wide confidence boosting groomers – perfect to learn on. The resort plays host to World Cup ski races on the Bird of Prey course in early December and there are events and activities throughout the season.
Beaver Creek resort prides itself on personal service. Everywhere you turn there are resort ambassadors ready with a trail map, some sunscreen or a granola bar to set you on your way.
Beaver Creek has a pedestrian village at its centre where an open air skating rink is surrounded by warming fire pits. There are art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafes aplenty. It’s the perfect resort for anyone who likes to feel a bit special!
Skiing in Beaver Creek
Beginners will lap up the attention lavished on them at the Beaver Creek ski school and will be confidently swishing down the many green runs in no time at all.
Unlike most resorts a large number of green runs are concentrated at the summit, accessed by the Cinch Express. This means that beginners can experience the magnificent views usually reserved for the more experienced skier, and ski in peace without the threat of high-speed interlopers sweeping past at a thunderous rate.
Beaver Creek is an excellent resort for families – there are Kids Adventure Zones dotted all over the easterly slopes, such as Hibernating Bear Cave and Rowdy Ridge. Fabulous Fun!
Whilst life on much of the mountain proceeds at a sedate pace, Grouse Mountain is a different story. This is hardcore, steep and deep. Screech Owl is well named and certainly gets the adrenaline pumping. For daring mogul aficionados, the bumps that form on Falcon Park and Osprey could often out scale a Mini Cooper. And if you are not on your knees yet, give Royal Elk Glades a whirl before calling the ambulance. Outstanding stuff.
