Beaver Creek Resort is located in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Beaver Creek Resort is 106 miles west of Denver and near the town of Avon. The area is easy to access by air as many major airlines fly into Eagle Airport or by land, either by car or shuttle bus.

Beaver Creek Resort boasts approximately 1832 acres of skiable terrain, 25 lifts, 2 bowls and 300 days of sunshine per year. Skiers and Snowboarders of all abilities will feel at home at Beaver Creek.

Beaver Creek Resort is best known as a world-class, luxury resort with three on-mountain villages; Beaver Creek Village, Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead Village and two towns at its base.

Each village has its own distinct character; Beaver Creek Village is at the heart of the resort and is filled with shops, art galleries, restaurants, bars and features an outdoor ice-skating rink. Bachelor Gulch offers ski-in/ski-out accommodations, as well as, shops and restaurants for your convenience. Arrowhead Village has a distinct Western feel and also features accommodations, retail and restaurants and is serviced by the Arrow Bahn Express Lift.

What impressed Escape2ski about Beaver Creek Resort is its vast lift system, which allows easy access to a mixture of skiing options. Everything from easy well-groomed, cruising blues to advanced/expert runs, complete with moguls. It also features terrain that has hosted World Cup downhill events.

Want your day on the slopes to include some diverse terrain? Take the Centennial Express Lift from Beaver Creek Village and then follow it up by with a quick ride on the Cinch Express Lift to the summit of Beaver Creek Mountain. From the summit, you can choose Red Buffalo, Booth Gardens or Piney. These trails will help warm up your muscles before you descend down the double blacks of Peregrine or Golden Eagle. If you want to challenge your ability, make your way over to Grouse Mountain where you’ll find a good selection of advanced terrain. From there head up the Larkspur Express Lift and enjoy the scenery as you make your way down to Arrowhead Village. A great spot for lunch!

A large part of the village-to-village experience is the “free” transport shuttle network that will easily take you from one village to the other.

The town of Avon is located a short distance from the mountain and offers a full range of lodging and amenities. The Avon Transit system (www.avon.org) is “fare-free” and will take you to and from the mountain throughout the day, as well as, around town. The town of Avon also hosts a transit hub where you will find a connecting bus service, Eco Transit 970.328.3520 or (www.eaglecounty.us/) between the Vail Valley communities of Beaver Creek, Vail, Eagle, Gypsum and Dotsero, plus Leadville and Minturn.

During our visit, we thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of terrain, the great villages and the wonderful views of the surrounding area. Beaver Creek Resort has everything need for a complete mountain adventure.
