We ski a lot. I mean really a lot, like over 60 days a season all over the world so spending $190 for a single lift ticket for us is a once every several year spurge. At that price, the standard is higher than say Wilmot, another Vail resort which they purchased last season and nicely upgraded. Parking: Found free... More

My brother and I met in Denver and he booked the Beaver Creek Lodge for our trip and the accommodations and access to slopes was perfect.

Vail is the best mountain to ski in the world in my opinion. The variety and quality of runs is incredible, the grooming is excellent, the staff is friendly and did I mention the skiing? Sure, the village is a little contrived but the valley has a wide range of dining options and adventure is found around every corner. Beaver... More

Beaver Creek is awesomely family friends. Lots to do. The mountain has lots of terrain for all levels and tends to be uncrowded. The hotels are beautiful and well maintained. The restaurants have greatly improved in food variety, quality, and value. Overall, Beaver Creek has wonderful positive energy!

Made first trip to BC on 3/10/17. Loved the runs - no waiting on any of the lifts. Most of the runs were groomed, except for the Strawberry Park/Elhorn side. Lift 18 was down while we were on that side, but otherwise the runs were fun. Birds of Prey area is tough, but awesome black trails. Blue runs are about... More

We skied one day at Beaver Creek and two days at Vail and had a fantastic time! It was so much fun that we ended up buying the Epic Season Pass for next year. If you do buy one, make sure to ask about the REBATE for this year's lift ticket, With the rebate the pass only cost $470... that's... More

Laid back ski resort with open fire pits to relax by apres ski style. Smores and cookies were a nice touch for all ages.

This place is so large that you can find a trail for whatever type of skier or boarder you may be. Everyone is so friendly and helpful from the lift operators to the workers in the lodges. Love this place!

The mountain is well set up, great lift coverage and not too crowded. The groomed trails were perfect. Staff is superior and helpful. Our instructor (Ian Bruce) was the BEST!

We alternate between Europe and North America. We really enjoy Beaver Creek, especially since we can use our lift tickets at multiple locations (especially Vail). The only negative aspect of these vacations is the very limited (and WAY overpriced) food options.
