About the Ski Resort

You won't find Beaver Creek's combination of luxury and exhilaration anywhere else on the continent. With 4,040 feet of awe-inspiring vertical and 146 trails, the mountain offers something for every level of skier, including those determined to win the World Cup.

At Beaver Creek you will find legendary Colorado powder and 300 days of sunshine, combined with a resort where elegant accommodations, gourmet dining, heated walkways and outdoor escalators are at your fingertips. Various ski shops are conveniently located throughout Beaver Creek to assist you with all your equipment needs to make your stay at Beaver Creek truly superb.

Beaver Creek has increased grooming by 50% over the years to cover more than 800 acres a day, that's half the mountain groomed 20 hours a day. For skiers and riders, that means you'll find yourself ripping the Birds of Prey downhill course and perfectly manicured runs all day with a smile.

The mountain's famous Talons area boasts some of the steepest chutes around, known to the locals as Birds of Prey. Ski runs dubbed Goshawk, Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Falcon Park, Screech Owl and more are some of Beaver Creek's most challenging terrain. Also on the list of vertical madness is the Larkspur Bowl, skier's left of the Birds of Prey area.

If it's freestyle that you want, Beaver Creek offers three terrain parks that suit any skier and rider level. Park 101 is the mountain's beginner-level park that feature rollers, dots and other terrain element that teach green-level riders and skiers of all ages to learn the basics of park familiarity. Intermediate should head to the Zoom Room, which starts with rollers, small tables and small rails and moves to larger features and rails at the park's end. Experts flaunt their know-how at Moonshine Park and Pipe, made for intermediate to expert skiers and riders. All three parks are for athletes looking to improve their skills on an assortment of features.

Check out Keller Glade and Heads up for the powder stashes or Harrier and Gunder's runs for the corduroy groomers. Tree runs guarantee extreme logslides and peaceful solo slopes, as well as a challenging leg drill. Demo products such as snowboards, shaped skis, powder skis, women's shaped skis and snowboards are available at the top of the Centennial lift at Beaver Creek's Mountain Demo Center.

Beaver Creek is now regarded as one of Colorado's most exciting vacation areas. This Resort truly holds nothing back! From the upmost in guest services & resort activities, Beaver Creek's focus is your vacation experience.

Whether you're taking the infamous Talons Challenge or making first tracks in the corduroy, Beaver Creek is the perfect place for every level of skier and for everyone to explore.
