Overview

Everything at Beaver Creek is posh, planned and near perfection – it’s the Deer Valley of Colorado. Owned by Vail Resorts, Beaver Creek opened in 1980 modeled after Europe's best ski resorts St Moritz in Switzerland and Italy's Cortina, it's like Vail's classier sister - not quite as popular, less approached, but that's what makes it so precious.

I love the resort but it is starting to get more crowded recently. I has a wide variety of terrain and the village has a very cosy feel. Can't beat a ritz carlton on mountain either. I hope they continue to improve the resort but not over expand.... More

This is my go to resort. Most people will stop at Vail so of you're willing to make a little but longer drive you can get the same quality without all the crowds. Huge runs, wide open, nothing better.... More

This resort has a wide variety of terrain. Beginners to more advanced skiiers always seems to be satisfied by the time 3:00 cookie time rolls around. Between the virtual no lift lines,and high quality facilities Beaver Creek is seen as a "get away" by many people that go there... More

Awesome terrain park. Great aspen trees and steeps.Parking is horrible since they started chargeing money for it. Its has killed the local scene of riders. Love the terrain but the culture is getting lost with greed of property owners.... More

The best place so far. Comparing to Vail is way less crowded. Groomed trails, with a lot of beginner and intermediate trails, but also expert terrain for the advanced skier. Staff is very friendly. This is my 3rd time going back to this place. ... More
