10 Reasons Why Beaver Creek Has the Best Activities in the Rocky Mountains

When you make the decision to take a ski vacation, you want to make everything is perfect both on and off the mountain. Skiing Beaver Creek is a heart-pumping, awe-inspiring experience in and of itself; but there are many reasons why other Beaver Creek activities are simply better than other resort towns.

Our service is world-class

From our Ski School Ambassadors to our 24/7 concierge desk, our staff has one goal: to help your vacation live up to the high expectations you have set.

Our family activities are a cut above the rest.

Most resorts offer children's activities, but we go above and beyond to make sure the newest members to the sport of skiing enjoy every minute of their day. From personalized attention from instructors to cookies and hot cocoa to warm up after a fun lesson, we have it all.

We know there's so much more to the mountain than skiing. 

We love our mountain town and know its every twist and turn. That's why it's our pleasure to take you to places you might not necessarily experience if you didn't ask a local.

Our goal is to make you a part of the Beaver Creek family

From relaxing to extreme and everything in between, we've got it all.

Whether you're an adrenaline junkie or you prefer to have an off-mountain day to give your body a break from the epic powder, we're sure that we have an activity to fill the niche.

Our concierge desk can help plan your dream day for you.

When you stay at Beaver Creek, you don't need to worry about planning your day. Simply let the concierge desk know what activities you're interested in, and they will make reservations for you.
