For not very many runs open we really enjoyed our day Nov 23rd at BC! The cookies and hot chocolate were a nice touch!

“Skiing will surprise you how good it can be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

Wide range of terrain and ability to access 3 areas. Restaurants nice too. Not a lot to do at night, but at this point that suits me fine.

“Feels Like Home But With World Class Skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

The trails are tough enough and the conditions are good enough to hold the World Cup Downhill competition but the atmosphere feels like home. They serve hot chocolate in the mornings at the top of the lifts and give out warm chocolate chip cookies in the afternoons. The village has great bars and restaurants and parking is pretty convenient. Living in between Vail and Beaver Creek I could easily go to either but find myself gravitating toward Beaver Creek year after year.

“Ski Beaver Creek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

A great family ski resort. Fits all levels of skiing. Well maintained slopes. Interconnects with Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead which makes a great day of skiing. It is a friendly place, lots of restaurants, and shopping.

“Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011

We based ourselves at Beaver Creek for our annual ski trip, It covered all the bases, Presidents weekend was uncrowded and we easily went over to Vail for the days we knew wouldn't have crowds. Vail beats all other resorts I have been to hands down, except on weekends, spring break and public holidays, nothing worse than staring at the back of someones helmet in line for half the day. Beaver Creek was the perfect alternative as the amount of skiing we could do in day without a single lift line was amazing. The shuttle buses were fanastic, coming by every couple of minutes. Truly a relaxing time. Next time we won't bother hiring a car as we never needed it.
