Opening Weekend Events and Activities:
This season Beaver Creek Resort kicks off opening weekend with our most special of traditions. On Wednesday, November 26th, we start the day - and unveil our new Centennial Lift (Chair #6) with 6-passenger chairs and alternating 10-person gondola cabins. With the unveiling we will host our annual winter festivities, complimentary hot cocoa and the opportunity to win tons of prizes!
That afternoon we embark on the tradition of finding the World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie
. Then on the Friday after Thanksgiving, we host our longest running tradition of all…the Beaver Creek Tree Lighting Ceremony
As we enter our 34th year of the tree lighting tradition, we will be taking it up a notch or two with music, performances, fireworks and the lighting of our very special Beaver Creek Colorado blue spruce.
