A message from Stew Price:
I’ve logged quite a few ski days at Beaver Creek over the years, and I have to tell you it is one of the finest ski resorts for a mix of skiers of all abilities (like, for a ski club). This mountain has it all: 19% “greens”, 52% “blues”, and 39% “blacks”. If you’re a “casual” skier, Beaver Creek’s big blue groomers are the best in the world, and if you’re a “wild one”, Beaver Creek’s Birds of Prey World Cup downhill course will make you humble! If you’re looking for a change of pace, Vail is a 20-minute bus ride away and is included in your lift ticket.
‘Not exactly roughing it’ is Beaver Creek’s campaign slogan, and for good reason. The slopes are meticulously groomed and uncrowded, the lifts are all high-speed, and there are freshly baked cookies waiting for you at the bottom of the lift! Most of us have learned that ski-in/ski-out accommodations make all the difference in the world. Our 3-bdrm Highlands condos are literally on the slope. You take the elevator from your room down to the bottom floor locker/ski storage, suit up, and carry your gear out the door a whole ten feet and snap in. You can take the private “Highlands Lift” up, or take the ski trail down to the village lifts. Not exactly roughing it.
We’re planning some great social activities with this trip, with a wine and cheese reception when we arrive, a couple of apres ski socials, and a “margarita night” that you won’t want to miss. There are many great restaurants in the village, and with a free continuous shuttle, everything’s an option. Also included with our stay at the Highlands is complimentary access to the Allegria Spa, for those of you who want to really indulge yourselves.
Nancy and I hope you’ll join us at Beaver Creek this season. If you haven’t been there yet, you need to do it. If you’ve been there before you know what I’m talking about!
