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. Examples include Beaver Creek Wonder — an artistic playground with oversized sculptures that are illuminated in rainbow hues at night, ice bikes and a giant snow globe — as well as their famous 3pm Cookie Time where guests are treated to a freshly baked chocolate chip delight.
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, 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, 1,832 total acres of terrain cater to skiers and riders of all abilities.
