Beaver Creek Colorado Beaver Creek is the epitome of a luxury ski resort. Their motto is “not exactly roughing it” and it is definitely a long way from roughing it at Beaver Creek because you’ll receive over-the-top pampering!
At Beaver Creek it’s all about the little things. Firstly you don’t have to do much traipsing about in your ski boots because there are escalators that travel to the slopes from the plaza and bus area. Slopeside ski valets store your gear and warm your boots, and the guest service staff anticipate your every need. The white glove service also extends to extras such as handing out free cookies in the afternoon. At BC, all guests are treated like royalty.
Beaver Creek Ski and Snowboard Terrain At 1,815 acres (734 hectares) of skiable terrain, Beaver Creek is a medium sized resort relative to other Colorado ski resorts
. The terrain is serviced by 25 lifts which includes 2 gondolas and 11 high speed quad chairs. The vertical drop is a massive 4,040 ft., although the full vertical of BC cannot be skied continuously.
Beaver Creek has an abundance of wide groomed trails, so it’s particularly well suited to beginners and intermediates, or those that just want to cruise. Intermediate slopes make up 43% of the terrain, and the grooming is very good. Grooming occurs 24/7 and an amazing 805 acres of corduroy is made each day!
Beaver Creek Snow Beaver Creek receives an average of 310 inches of Colorado powder per season, and many of the slopes have a northerly orientation so the snow stays in good shape. If the snow gods aren’t happy, BC can make huge amounts of artificial snow. Remarkably, 705 acres (39%) of terrain has snow-making capabilities.
