Year after year, skiers of all levels flock to Beaver Creek and discover what they’ve always been looking for: legendary service, unmatched skiing and the intimacy and relaxation of one of the best mountain towns in the West. 

What exactly is it that makes Beaver Creek such a sought-after destination?

We spend all year paying attention to details so your vacation is unparalleled.

Creating a world-class ski destination is a labor of love that transforms a beautiful mountain valley into a premium snow sport experience.  That means you can expect the best experience from beginning to end, from the check-in at your preferred lodging to the staff on the mountain to the servers at dinner.

We have four gourmet on-mountain dining options.

Fine Dining

Our mountain offers more than just fresh powder; we have several epicurean options slopeside so you can indulge whenever your appetite is piqued.

Our Ski School Ambassadors are so much more than ski instructors.

Visiting Beaver Creek is the experience of a lifetime due to the emphasis our staff places on making every moment a memorable one. That attention to detail starts with our Ambassadors.

We’ll hand tailor lessons to teach your entire family to ski.

New this year, we’re offering private family ski instructions. Our instructors love sharing a passion for the mountain with anyone who's willing to listen. Learn to ski with individualized methods depending on your ability.

With over 1,800 acres of skiable terrain, our trails are World Cup worthy.

Join us each year for the Audi Birds of Prey World Cup weekend. Once you’ve watched the pros tackle the trails, you can challenge yourself on the very same runs.

No nannies needed at Beaver Creek.

Meet Old World Charm in person.

You can meet Helmut Fricker in the Village Plaza throughout the winter. It’s not every town that has a jolly, alpenhorn-blowing, lederhosen-wearing friend who's has been entertaining us all since the resort opened in 1980.

We’re more than a ski town.

We know not every moment can be spent on the slopes (as much as you wish that were true). Browse upscale boutiques in Beaver Creek Village or lounge by a mesmerizing fire while enjoying a relaxing après ski cocktail.

Beaver Creek 3 o'clock cookiesEvery day at three o’clock is cookie time in Beaver Creek. Our chefs serve over 495,000 freshly-baked cookies each year!
