Beaver Creek

Ski resorts in USA
As one of the major ski resorts in the Western United States, Beaver Creek Resort is known for its dedication to guests of all skill levels. Located just south of the town of Avon, the ski area is one of the most well-known to Colorado natives, U.S. ski bums, and international vacationers, thanks to its regular hosting of World Cup events.

Getting there is easy, as Interstate 70 runs from Grand Junction to the west and Denver to the East. The resort is 120 miles west of Denver International Airport and sits on the western slope of the continental divide.

Five Mountains in One Resort


Beaver Creek Resort nestles between Arrowhead Mountain, Bachelor Gultch, Beaver Creek, Grouse Mountain, and Larkspur. That provides visitors with 1,832 acres of skiing terrain. The resort has a reputation for being well-groomed, making it a great experience for novices and experienced plankers.

Guest skiing on the upper trails will be playing at alpine biome altitudes, which offer breathtaking views as they ski or snowboard down the mountain. Two bowls, Rose and Larkspur, nestle between peaks and provide a unique backdrop of their own.

Beaver Creek Resort has a base elevation of 8,100 feet. The summit rests at 11,440 feet, giving the ski area a vertical rise of 3,340 feet. A balaclava and brain bucket are in order, especially for anyone bombing down the chutes.

There are 150 trails at the Beaver Creek ski area. Just under 20-percent is marked green, over 40-percent blue, and the rest is either black diamond or double diamond terrain. No matter a guest's skill level, there are classes and private lessons available to dial in your game before heading out on your own.

Rippers and shredders can use the mountain's epic mix app to keep track of elevation, compete against others on Facebook, and unlock pins for achievements.

Connect, Explore, and Learn


Kids will enjoy the eight adventure zones created especially for them. They can have fun in settings geared towards their age and skill set.

The Beaver Creek ski resort has over 20 lifts ranging from chairs, gondolas, and magic carpets. Some of these lifts are high-speed, getting skiers quickly back to the top of their favorite run. Visitors should keep an eye on signs, as some lifts shut down earlier than others.

The Signature Parks Collection is a stand-out design at Beaver Creek Resort. It consists of three parks that allow guests to explore terrains of various skill levels. That provides fun for newbies looking for a bit of fun as much as the skilled planker looking to perform a few tricks.

Haymeadow Park offers easy terrain as well as beginner-friendly gondolas. Red Buffalo Park increases the challenge without making things too difficult for novices. McCoy Park is an additional 250 acres that continue this theme for those learning and those with some experience.

There are several cabins, lodges, and sports centers across Beaver Creek, and the village provides guests with all the amenities they will need.
