The Pines Hotel is in Beaver Creek, but not right on the plaza, so it's a little quieter, which is good. It's near enough to walk to the plaza though, and of course, since it's BC, they have complimentary shuttle service on-call. The Pines features ski-in, ski-out access (which they should groom more often, as it's used as both a footpath and a ski trail), and lots of nice amenities (freshly baked cookies every afternoon, coffee service in the mornings, cozy blankets for lounging by the fireplaces). The hot tub is relaxing after a day of skiing. Pretty much pure escapism! I didn't want to leave!
