From a skier's perspective, Beaver Creek is actually three areas: Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch, and Arrowhead. The latter two cater mostly to beginner and intermediate level riders. All have a fair number of trails which are kept groomed. One part of Beaver Creek, called Grouse Mountain, is exclusively for expert riders (black and double black diamond). The rest of Beaver Creek is a mix of all difficulty levels, with mostly beginner to intermediate terrain.
The resort itself is accessed either by shuttle from Avon, by lift from the Westin Resort in Avon, or by driving up for some very expensive parking. The parking is really for those lodging at the resort. The Beaver Creek Resort has numerous shops and some excellent fine art galleries. Most everything up there is quite pricy, especially the bars and restaurants.
This review is focused on our winter visit. We have also been here in the summer, when the number of different recreational activities is much greater. Overall, this is a great family oriented resort for those willing to pay the prices to be here.
