Snow Surfaces

Experience Fresh Snow On The Slopes, On Demand

Two years of testing and development at Beaver Creek Resort have honed a new snow resurface technique which raises the bar for winter sports. Engineered by Beaver Creek’s snow surfaces team, the Snow Refresh project includes the world’s most advanced snowmaking instruments across three of the resort’s most-popular ski trails – Red Tail, Gold Dust and Centennial. 

What is the Snow Refresh Project?
Snow Refresh produces light, airy snow which is perfectly manicured into buttery, fluffy groomed runs. During optimal conditions (cold temperatures and low humidity), snowmaking machines activate overnight to deliver a fresh, seamless canvas of snow. The grooming team comes in early morning, prior to opening, and combs the slopes to perfection – delivering that light, airy, and meticulously groomed corduroy.

What is it like to ski on trails that have received the Snow Refresh?
Some skiers describe it as skiing on velvet. Once you’ve skied the trails that received a Snow Refresh - you’ll only want to ski it again.

When is the Snow Refresh program available?
The Snow Refresh program is available December through mid-March. If there has not been fresh snowfall and conditions are right (cold temps and low humidity), the grooming and snowmaking crews will make the call to activate the Snow Refresh on one, two, or all three runs.

Which trails are part of the Snow Refresh program?
The trails currently part of the Snow Refresh program are: Centennial, Red Tail and Gold Dust Trails

How do guests find out when Snow Refresh activates?
Skiers are alerted when Snow Refresh snow is available via the online Beaver Creek daily grooming report, daily snow conditions report, announcement signs on the mountain, and through the resort’s Ambassadors and mountain concierges in the Beaver Creek Village.
