Beaver Creek skiing is just like every other experience you’ll have during your vacation: exceptional. While some resorts excel at providing terrain specific for a certain type of skier, Beaver Creek can boast being something to everyone. First-timers to aggressive skiers looking to drop cliffs will feel like this mountain was made for them.
Beaver Creek is known as a “World Cup Mountain” because the annual World Cup men’s downhill race—and several women’s World Cup events—are held on its Birds of Prey run. The skiing at Beaver Creek is right in line with the resort’s specialty: world-class experiences. Steep, wide-open, blue runs—like those found underneath the Grouse Mountain and Birds of Prey chairlifts—are favorites of intermediate skiers. Beginners flock to the looker’s left portion of the mountain, where the Drink of Water chairlift allows novices to get up on the mountain, enjoy scenic views of the surrounding mountains and take long runs to the base village. And, while Beaver Creek isn’t known for its extreme terrain, the Stone Creek Chutes area features a handful of rocks to jump off and tight tree runs to navigate—sure to please the expert skier looking for a true challenge.
No matter what your skiing ability, you can rest assured that the resort is doing everything in its power to make Beaver Creek skiing as safe as possible; they were awarded the National Ski Area Association’s Best Overall Safety Award. Everyone can end the day with fresh, homemade chocolate chip cookies, served daily at 3 p.m.
