We stayed at Arrowhead Village condos during spring break (March 2005) with our three kids. The condo village is much more affordable than Beaver Creek or Vail, but it is operated by Vail/Beaver Creek so you have free bus service day and night to Beaver Creek, plus the Arrowhead ski area connects with Beaver Creek. You can ski from the Arrowhead lift over to Bachelor Gulch and then to Beaver Creek Village. The condos are big, new, well appointed and well maintained. The pool/hot tub area is bigger than the usual condo complex has to offer, and our kids loved it. We stayed at Aspenwood, which is next door to the Arrowhead ski lifts and the pool area. Terrific condo. Arrowhead is like a country club with master planned private homes, condos and townhomes around a golf course, so it is not a town like Vail or Beaver Creek. But you can hop on the bus and get to BC in 10 to 15 minutes. Getting to Vail from Arrowhead involves taking the bus to BC then another bus to Vail. Or you can drive, which is what we did. Arrowhead is geared for families; a bit sleepy for singles or couples, who are better off in Vail or BC.
