With its stone gate-house at the entrance, Beaver Creek feels more like a country club than a resort. And the amenities and services won’t let you down. Purpose built for skiing, Beaver Creek is easy to get around and the lift lines tend to be short. There’s something for everyone within this 1832 acre park, from the beginners’ area at the top of the mountain, to intermediate slopes and more challenging terrain for the experts. Off the mountain enjoy ice skating, shops, restaurants and bars as well as a plethora of high-end experiences.
Food & Bars
AccommodationThere are plenty of accommodation options to suit your needs and your budget at Beaver Creek. Luxurious, high end hotels and condos tend to be situated in the heart of Beaver Creek Village where there’s immediate access to the mountain.

At the bottom of the mountain, you can find more affordable accommodation in Avon and Arrowhead.
