This ski area is very well designed, safe, well patrolled, and the piste maintenance teams do a great job. Lift queues only seem to occur at peak times, and when they do they are civilized, courteous, and move quickly, so really no problem. The marked pistes are all intermediate standard and the double blacks are short but fairly wide with no great surprises. Piste preparation takes place during the day with squads of piste bashers moving line abreast, with lots of sound effects for safety. The lift system is not the most advanced in the world, there is only one bubble that goes nowhere interesting, some chairs are slow (notably chair 14) and the mountain restaurants are a disappointment as many are private. However, for a family holiday Beaver Creek is good, and you can always have a day or so at Vail and plunge into the back bowls.
