Where to begin? We used to stay in the upper Beaver Creek village, but the Westin Riverfront won us over several visits ago. The Apres Ski scene here is fantastic. What could be better than relaxing by a fire listening to the guitar duo "Turntable Review", or the amazing piano of Tony Gulizia!! And to be honest- the dogs (yes- off leashes) made it even better.
The hot tubs are the perfect way to finish- or begin- your ski day. Then just step on the gondola and you are on the mountain. Ski where you like, but smart planning says finish up on the Bachelor Gulch runs and you can ski-in, ski-out to your heart's delight. If you choose to finish up in the upper Beaver Creek village- no worries- buses are free and frequent.
We took the Colorado Mountain Express van from EGE airport, so parking was not used or needed. And as mentioned, bus service is free between the Westin and the village. You don't want or need a car if you fly in to EGE, or DEN for that matter- which is also served by CME vans.
Ski-valet is great. Need to rent? Beaver Creek Sports has a location on property. Hint- a discount coupon is in every edition of WhatToDo magazine- available from the concierge.
Speaking of Concierge- Julia Parsons and Betsy Zale will make you feel like family. And Chad at the Front Desk was the best!
Oh- it didn't hurt that the snow was awesome...but even the wonderful Westin can't promise that! ;)
Cheers! If you're there now- we envy you!
