Beaver Creek offers the best in family skiing with convenience and premier accommodations.
We keep coming back to Beaver Creek year-after-year as it offers the best skiing for our family, the most convenience as far as restaurants and non-skiing activities, and the accommodations are stellar! Beaver Creek Village is designed such that once you arrive, you really never need a car until you lave. All the condos, restaurants and shopping are within walking distance of each other.
Beaver Creek Village could not be better configured for a week-long family vacation. It has the best variety of restaurants, shops and condos all within a very small radius.
WHERE TO STAY
Park Plaza - this has been our go-to condo location on multiple trips. The management is fantastic, the rates are very reasonable and it is easy to book on VRBO. Park Plaza is located in the heart of Beaver Creek Village. You are literally steps away from the escalators to the Centennial Lift. And they offer 2- and 3-bedroom units that are perfect for a larger family.
Village Hall - the location simply cannot be beat. These condos are literally at the bottom of Centennial run.
WHERE TO EAT
Beaver Creek Village offers a variety of dining options that are all within walking distance of your condo.
Beaver Creek Chophouse - for slope-side dining, BC Chophouse simply cannot be beat. Prime cuts of beef, a full wine menu and attentive waitstaff make for a wonderful dining experience. Be sure to get a table near the window to watch the snowcats groom the runs for the next day. And CBAR serves up the perfect cocktail apres-ski or before dinner.
Blue Moose Pizza - an excellent pie plus a variety of local craft beers on tap. a take-out "Big Moose" pizza is always in order our first night in Beaver Creek after a full day of travel.
Dusty Boot - certainly more than a burger and steak joint, the Dusty Boot is our option for multi-family dining: it provides a full menu selection for all ages and can handle larger groups.
Hooked - if you are looking for creative, delicious seafood, look no further than Hooked. From fish tacos to fresh sushi to their signature whole fish preparations, Hooked offers superbly prepared fresh fish and a variety of menu options.
WHAT TO DO
Beaver Creek Ski School - the ski school (specifically our good friend Erika Higgins) is the main reason we keep coming back to Beaver Creek. The Ski School is well-staffed with instructors who can improve any skiers ability from novice to advanced. And with a large family, I HIGHLY recommend an instructor not only to teach but also to navigate the mountain for the week.
Nova Guides - we routinely take an "off day" in the middle of the week which is anything but a rest day. One of our favorites was snowmobiling with the crew of Nova Guides at former Camp Hale.
Vail - Adventure Ridge - whether it is tubing or riding the outdoor roller coaster, Forest Flyer, Vail's Adventure Ridge makes for the perfect non-skiing mid-week alternative.
