Easter week 2015

have never been to beaver creek and planned a week this coming Easter (April 6-11). Families are made up of some beginner skiers and I was concerned about the skiing. I've heard mixed reviews on expectations. Thoughts?

We enjoy skiing at Beaver Creek--what are the mixed reviews you've heard?

That being said, spring skiing isn't our favorite; you'll be there the last week of the season, as BC is scheduled to close April 12.

Welcome to the forum. What are your concerns? Easter week is early April this year. While you're always subject to local weather at any time of year, there's no reason to expect that early April will be anything but sensational. I skied Beaver Creek the following week two years ago and it was incredible.

I would not make weather one of your planning points. It will be fine.

Have fun.

We've traveled to Beaver Creek for spring skiing for the past two years (and are returning again this year at the end of March). Conditions can be a little "iffy" at that time of the year. The first year it was warm (40s at the bottom of the mountain) and the snow at the bottom was very slushy. The second year was perfect, with temps in the 20s or so and new snow nearly every day.

I was learning to ski the first year along with my (then) seven-year-old daughter. The beginner lessons all take place near the bottom of the mountain, so you may ski in slush while you're learning. But both years we made our way to the top of the mountain and skied the green runs there later in the week. At the top the temps are colder and the snow was great both years.

Obviously, we enjoy Beaver Creek and are returning for our third year. This year, my four-year-old daughter will take lessons again (she took one day of lessons last year, but didn't progress much). The lessons at Beaver Creek are great for beginners and, as an adult, I took lessons with other adults who were learning. By my third day, we were skiing the long greens at the top and had a really great time.
