You know when you have arrived in a distinct resort when you are checked through the security gates at the base of the mountain, to direct you to your accommodation and provide you with information. As you go up past the golf course check out the awesome single home properties. Then you arrive at a stunning addition to your ski library. Beaver Creek exudes sophistication,luxury and class with a high end infrastructure most resorts envy.

Beaver Creek, 10 miles from Vail and on the same ski pass, was computer designed and developed from the 1980's and is unashamedly exclusive, with a large choice of 4 and 5 star hotels, apartments and private homes/chalets, with most offering ski in ski out options. Check out our excellent catered chalets too for groups of 6 or more. Effortless skiing and making it easy to get around, escalators and lifts will take you to the slopes, through the centre of the this Bavarian style pedestrianised village, so walking is just an option.

With such elegance and quality, staying in Beaver Creek is not exactly a cheap option, though late and early season holidays throw up some veritable bargains, in normally great skiing conditions. Lack of snow has never been much of a worry. The village of Avon though, at the base of Beaver Creek golf course has plenty of inexpensive alternatives, from the rather swish, excellent Westin Hotel through to the superb condominiums of Canyons,Chapel Square,Brookside and Beaver Creek West. The new gondola takes you from Avon to Batchelor Gulch which also offers some stunning accommodations, including the 5 star Ritz Carlton, right by the lifts. Just by is the most amazing 5 bedroom penthouse with its own private lift which we sometimes offer as a high end catered home.

The terrain in Beaver Creek suits skiers of all abilities. It is hard to find a better area for beginners and timid intermediates, as at the top of the mountain there are numerous wide, open, easy gradient green runs. Connecting over to Batchelor Gulch and Arrowhead, the green and blue runs offer superb cruising on ever more groomed, treelike, wide pistes, in relative peace and quiet, due to the relatively deserted slopes.Cabin Fever is just one of the many outstanding blue runs here, which takes you down for tea and cakes at the Ritz Carlton!If the sun is out, just sit outside and congratulate yourself on the great choice you have made!

Experts and adventurers will love some of the steep terrain, including the mens downhill run,Birds of Prey and Grouse Mountain, which is a mainly moguled area. Check out Screech Owl which offers as steep as maybe you want but Grouse Mountain is not for the timid or faint hearted.Want to practice your turns on the bumps? No problem. Larkspur has the ideal solution of some short steep black runs. Snowboarders will love Elk Glade at Beaver Creek.After some bump fun, have a few cruisers down the Centennial Ladies downhill run, but maybe not try and go as fast!

The village has a number of bars and some excellent dining options from Tex Mex at Coyotes to the classic American options at Beaver Creek Chophouse. The two on mountain restaurants at Spruce Saddle and Red Tail offer good quality food at a reasonable price. The Dusty Boot is a great family choice as is the Golden Eagle which we highly recommend as well as the Revelation bar and restaurant at Beaver Creek Lodge.Happy hours extend the budget with a pint from just 2 USD, or a pint and burger at 8 USD.(March 2017).The nightlife however is quiet so do not expect a lot happening at midnight. That's left for Vail.

Off the slopes there is a choice of high end shops and galleries, with an excellent ice rink in the centre, as well as the Villars centre, offering some world class entertainment.A few celebs have homes here but we rarely see them when out and about, though we did bump into Dustin Hoffman...literally. If you have young children then Small World is highly recommended and your children are well looked after all day for around 150 USD.Ski school is also excellent. All in all Beaver Creek is a place to remember and return to. Many do.

Arrowhead is the furthest away area from Beaver Creek. This intimate, village is centered around the base of the Arrow Bahn Express lift, with easy access to beginner and intermediate terrain and links by lift to Beaver Creek. Arrowhead guests will enjoy the pool and hot tubs, centrally located amongst the residential properties. Village Transportation provides complimentary service to and from Beaver Creek daily.

Guest choosing Arrowhead enjoy a quieter resort and convenience to the slopes. Arrowheads altitude is slightly lower than that of Beaver Creek or Bachelor Gulch and therefore the Arrow Bahn lift opens a week later in the season and closes a week earlier than lifts on Beaver Creek Mountain.

Accommodation offers include : Stay 7 nights and pay for 5; Stay 10 nights and pay for 8 and stay 14 nights and pay for 10.Check out your ideal dates soon and don't forget to buy your Epic ski pass early and take advantage of the offers.
