The Westin is a great place for a ski vacation.You will feel right at home and be glad you are staying here. This resort is located right near the entry road up to Beaver Creek Village in Avon, CO. The resort sits at the edge of Eagle River. We did see a bald eagle soaring over the buildings one day. We did the drive from Denver, spectacular mountain views and if you are very observant you may be able to spot a bighorn sheep but next trip will fly into Eagle. You do not need a car once you are here. Avondale Restaurant is delicious and the Marketplace deli is fine for breakfast,lunch and light dinner fare. Very good paninis,chili and pizza. You can walk in Avon to the City Market supermarket,Starbucks, Dennys, Sports Authority,Christy Sports for all things ski related etc.If you forget your toothbrush just call service express! We had a 1 bedroom premium villa. Its was very comfortable for myself,my husband and 12yr. old. Ordered a rollaway bed which was more comfortable than our king which was a bit firm. Washer dryer invaluable with detergent supplied daily if necessary. The Hotel has spectacular views of Beaver Creek Mountain. Request Mountain view rooms or you will face the town not terrible.Restaurant also has the same great views.Beaver Creek Resort Buses are across the street takes about 10 minutes at the most to get to the village and lifts. If you have a car you park in the underground garages at $33 per day.You can change into your gear while in the garage or stow your stuff in lockers up a few steps from the garage and other locations. There are no outdoor mountain parking lots only at the base near the entry road where a bus takes you up the rest of the way. That parking might be $10. If you are staying at the Westin you can take the Gondola which is open to everyone over to Bachelor Gulch and connect to the lift which allows you to ski in Bachelor Gulch or enables you to make you way over to Beaver Creek.Look online at the trail maps. All the staff at the hotel and villas were great smiling,friendly and willing to help. The Westin lobby is plush and inviting big comfy sofas and chairs ,roaring fireplaces ,books and newspapers to read and even tables to play monopoly! You could sit and relax during the day in the lobby because everyone else is out skiing it gets very quiet till the mountain closes. Lobby bar gets full at the end of the day as well as the Avondale bar. Great happy hour special small plates menu everything yummy. Try the Larkburger.The hottubs fill up quickly as skiers return. They overlook the river and mountain, beautiful. Very nice lap pool its saltwater.Plenty of lounge chairs to sit in the sun, it was warm enough one day with no wind to sit outdoors for alittle while. There is a walking path along the river great places for photos.The spa looks wonderful and the gym is always busy. Great lockerooms with everything you need. Hairdryers,brushes,bodylotion.shower caps even razors. The signature soap,shampoo and body lotion supplied in the rooms are available to purchase at the spa. They have such a great smell. Beaver Creek village has great ski shopping and Luxury shopping like Gorsuch, ultra luxurious clothing by various designers and skiwear by Bogner and across the way a home store as well.We purchased the Peaks pass last year and purchased discount lift tickets.If you wait a one day lift ticket is now over $100.00!! Can all be done online SNOW.com. Vail is less than 10 miles down the road. Its gigantic and makes Beaver Creek look like a poor cousin! We love Beaver Creek its perfect.Snowed every night Conditions were great, grooming all day. You will hear what sounds like an ambulance siren coming from somewhere and it can be one or more snowcats grooming away. Signed up our 12 yr. old for the Ultimate 4 package. 4 kids close in age and ability with one instructor all day. She was very happy as opposed to being in regular,larger groups with all ages mixed together.Had one dinner at Agave, down the road on West Beaver Creek Blvd. rte.6, Giant portions brought the leftovers back and had it for breakfast.Good food and margaritas.Also has varoius bands playing at night. You will love this place! Its also supposed to be even better in the summer.
