Beaver Creek boasts the ambiance of a modern resort coupled with the unhurried feel of an alpine village, where visitors the world over enter the gates and leave everyday life behind all year long. World-class skiing and resort amenities, golf and drop-dead gorgeous Rocky Mountain views make this town in the Vail Valley the ideal place for a serene getaway.
The village itself offers up plenty of off-mountain activity with a great collection of shops, restaurants and spas, and at the center of it all, an outdoor ice rink. Take in a show at the beautiful Vilar Performing Arts Center, which features a wide variety of performance acts throughout the year. An abundance of kid-friendly activities earned it the honor of No. 1 in family programming by SKI Magazine readers. One example is the Beaver Creek Loves Teens Too program, which entertains teens age 13–17 with a variety of evening itineraries.
The activity doesn’t stop when the snow melts. During the green summer months, guests can explore the beauty of the natural environment and native wildlife on foot or bike via expansive trail systems, take in spectacular views on a scenic chairlift ride or Top of the Mountain Tour, enjoy summer concerts and festivals, or tee off at three championship golf courses.
Every December, athletes and spectators alike migrate to Beaver Creek Resort for the Birds of Prey Men’s World Cup, one of the world’s premier ski events. But that is only a slice of what the area has to offer. With three distinct mountain areas that range from gentle, manicured slopes to open intermediate trails to the steep bumps, 1,815 total acres of terrain cater to skiers and riders of all abilities.
