Ski Buddy Program
Beaver Creek can provide trained guides to assist the more experienced disabled skiers. The guide would help with chairlift loading, integration into children's ski school classes and for general orientation on the mountain. Please note this service should not be utilized in place of a ski lesson or a personal aid. We require a minimum of 48 hours advance notification if you are requesting ski buddy assistance.
