"If you're looking for convenience, exceptional service, superb skiing and a world-class ski school then look no further. Beaver Creek offers affordable exclusivity and the highest possible standards on and off mountain. Make sure you ski down to the Ritz Carlton at Bachelor Gulch for a drink on the terrace or have an al fresco lunch at Mamie's Mountain Grill.

Beaver Creek Ski Holidays

Beaver Creek is luxury skiing at its very best: amazing terrain, perfect powder snow, an exclusive mountain resort, top accommodation and all backed up by impeccable world-class service. 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 Birds of Prey course in early December and there are events and activities throughout the season.

Beaver Creek resort prides itself on personal and attentive 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 snow 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. The long gentle cruising runs down through the trees to Bachelor Gulch are some of the very best trails in Colorado for novices and families looking to practice and perfect their turns on beautifully groomed snow. 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!

Intermediate skiers and riders get the lion’s share of the terrain in Beaver Creek and its two inter-linked satellite village at Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead. Expect long undulating groomers, open faces and nice easy glades. Meet your buddies for lunch at the Spruce Saddle Lodge or spoil yourself on the deck at the Ritz-Carlton, before heading out for some more hero-skiing.

Whilst life on much of the mountain proceeds at a sedate pace, Grouse Mountain is a different story. This is hard-core, steep and deep technical terrain. 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 it a day. Outstanding stuff.

We offer a full range of discounted Beaver Creek lift tickets, ski & snowboard rentals and snow school lessons and we always recommend you book early for our very best prices.
