As an 59 year old expert skier who is now overweight and unfit I love Vail/Beaver Creek for the huge number of long intermediate runs that are perfectly groomed every day. I would give it five stars were the lift pass not the most expensive on the planet. Seven hundred bucks for a six day pass? A little excessive I... More

I much preferred the skiing here to Vail. It's a fantastic resort. Still too expensive but 'almost' worth it.

If you want bumps - Beaver Creek is your place. Best bump runs. Long groomed runs are abundant at Beaver Creek as well. Easy to get around the mountain - restaurants are well situated (food is expensive). Vail is huge with a variety of runs and restaurants. It will take several days to ski every area of Vail.

Lifts close at 3:30PM, some actually close at 3PM. Grooming is nice. Tickets are much cheaper if you order them in advance, but are attached to specific people, so husband in the morning and wife in the evening does not work with their ticketing system. You would have to buy 2 tickets. The skiing itself is good, but not as... More

Some of the best facilities in the world, snow conditions are fabulous. So many lifts to choose from, you never get to cover it all. Well worth every penny, top notch service and unparalleled mountain.

Pros: -Large area for skiing -Can find a run without crowds -Almost ski-in/out -Nice village, plenty of restaurants Cons: -Expensive, it cost us more than go to prestigious places in Europe (from Canada) -The mountains are not breathtaking, more like high hills/plateau -Getting in/out via airport: The Eagle airport is close (still cost $150 on a taxi), but the United...

Went the first week of Feb and the weather was perfect. It snowed at night and sunny during the day. All the runs were open with fresh powder. My favorite was the back bowls at Vail. Pros: Easy to get around with or without a car; We had a car and it was easy to find parking during the day... More

Be careful if using the Beaver Creek reservation system. The website features some hotels that are no where close to the ski slopes. Even worse, some reservation staff are not familiar with the properties; The reservation clerk put me on a shuttle that did not service the hotel in my reservation. I ended up having to take a cab to... More

If you can drop everything, go to Colorado now. This is the world championship and the USA has it on home turf. So much is free: free transportation in the area, free races, free food and drink after the races. The stands were full for Lindsey Vonn on Tuesday but not today for men's Super G today. The races and... More

We skied both Beaver Creek and Vail this past week. Vail is huge and Beaver Creek is very nicely laid out. Our preference is Beaver Creek but you won't be disappointed with either one.
