Great mix of powder and bluebird days. Hot Chocolate at top of Centennial Lift at 9:30. Cookies on Sunday morning and afternoon. Cookies at 3 p.m. every day! Very friendly. Food on mountain was good but pricy. A must is Thursday night lights - fireworks on the mountain!

We returned to Beaver Creek for the 15th year in a row and we were not disappointed. Now that our children are older we will stay at Vail to enhance our ability to explore the vast and diverse vertical that mountain offers. Had a great time, snowed nearly two feet over our stay.

This was great resort and we had a wonderful time as a family during the ski season. The ski lift at the hotel is in a perfect location. The ski valet made it easy to store your gear (they did all the work). I loved the slopes and the staff.

From a skier's perspective, Beaver Creek is actually three areas: Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch, and Arrowhead. The latter two cater mostly to beginner and intermediate level riders. All have a fair number of trails which are kept groomed. One part of Beaver Creek, called Grouse Mountain, is exclusively for expert riders (black and double black diamond). The rest of Beaver...

After a difficult winter in our home town, I thought my husband was crazy when he suggested a trip to Beaver Creek Colorado. Now, I think he's a genius. We stayed at the highlands, Slopeside in a beautiful condo that was perfect for our group. The condo was well equipped with 4 bedrooms, each with its own bath, a well-... More

A perfect day on the slopes with fresh powder and great weather. I don't think I took the same lift more than twice all day. The bowls on the back were awesome and the kids had a blast at Ski School (thanks Lisa at school check in)!

Vail is beautiful. However, for expert skiers on a day without fresh snow to ski the bowls, this is a waste of money. We skied for two hours and left. Too many novice skiers and very long lift lines. Pick another resort if you are a good skier.

As always, Vail mountain is Epic. Lift lines well managed, incredible snow, well worth the outrageous lift ticket price. Hey, you get what you pay for! Only negative was Tanner at Mid-Vail manning the Latin station - Dude, check your attitude!

From the moment we stepped off the bus, "red coats" were falling over themselves to help us, and even one lady who surveyed my husband for the resort managed to sort out the Epic Pass problems we had since arrival (it doesn't like it if you are not from the US and don't have a zip code!) Cookies when we... More
