Beaver Creek, Colorado
Just 20 miles from Vail and Eagle Airport, Beaver Creek is one of Colorado’s newest townships and an outstanding year-round destination. If you’re looking for the type of winter vacation that is laden with premium amenities and first-rate service, then Beaver Creek is an intelligent choice. Championship-level ski trails. Luxurious dining, lodging, shopping and more.
The experience at Beaver Creek is something of a mix of Old World charm and New World amenities. With so much excitement on the mountain, it can be easy to forget that an entire town filled with luxury boutiques, art galleries and, of course, world-class spas exist only steps away from the lifts. Beaver Creek is not only about winter sports but offers a vast array of activities during the Summer.
A fun fact is that golf balls travel up to 20% farther at high altitude, so why not test the theory in one of the valley’s mountain golf courses. Experience the thrill of white water rafting on the Colorado, Eagle or Arkansas rivers. If you are an early bird, take off just after sunrise in a hot air balloon and get a bird’s eye view of the Rockies. Alternatively, take a Jeep or Hummer tour through the beautiful Colorado high country with panoramas of snowcapped peaks and sapphire lakes and explore ghost and mountain towns. Biking and hiking along with horse riding and fly fishing are just other summer options.
