Amazing mountain even on Presidents weekend

The mountain is well set up, great lift coverage and not too crowded. The groomed trails were perfect. Staff is superior and helpful. Our instructor (Ian Bruce) was the BEST!

We alternate between Europe and North America. We really enjoy Beaver Creek, especially since we can use our lift tickets at multiple locations (especially Vail). The only negative aspect of these vacations is the very limited (and WAY overpriced) food options.

Brought the family her to try skiing at a different location. We have skied Tahoe, Park City, Alta, Keystone, etc. Beaver creek was awesome. The mountain was not crowded. Nice mix of runs. Length of the runs were good as well. You can't beat chocolate chip cookies at 3pm at the base of the mountain. Our only complaint was the... More

We went there in March- 2014 and are planning to go back soon. They have people helping around. They used to have a Hot Chocolate or Tea for the guests when we come back from the "ski day". It's really nice.

We have skiied all over the world but Vail is still our favourite ski resort, the town is excellent and the skiing offers such a wide variety of terrain.

I love, love Beaver Creek. Best runs, great for snowboarder as there are not as many catwalks as in Vail. Amazing views and not long lift lines. But, as every fancy ski resort here, it's on the expensive side.

In comparison to vail, Bever Creek is more fun with less crowds. Along with this mountain containing runs suitable for beginners, there is great black and double black terrain. The only time you'll experience crowds is at noon on a holiday on the centennial express lift. Plus you can enjoy very little traversing to get from place to place.

BC's green trails at the summit allow beginners to experience awe-inspiring views at 11,000+ ft. By beginners, I don't only mean new to skiing/boarding, but also new to CO skiing. I decided on BC after researching CO options for those who have learned to ski in PA and whose highest mountain has been 4,400 in NY. Beaver Creek delivered and... More

While skiing in Vail I thought it would be a good idea to try Beaver Creek. The last time I skied Beaver Creel was in 1982 with my wife. On this trip I was traveling with my son I thought it would be a good idea to try Beaver Creek again. Beaver Creek is located only 15 minutes West of... More
