Beaver Creek starts 30th Season

BEAVER CREEK, Colorado — Beaver Creek opened on Dec. 15, 1980, with six lifts and a 45-minute ride time to the top.  Beaver Creek now has 25 lifts, three mountain villages and plenty of top professionals at its Ski and Snowboard School.  Beaver Creek recently won the top ranking for family programming in Ski Magazine's annual reader's poll, and the resort is proving why through its family programs this season.  From new kids' adventure area to Family Fun Nights to family programs seven nights a week, Beaver Creek has distinguished itself as a place for families.  The family atmosphere isn't the only atmosphere you'll find at Beaver Creek, though. The resort has long been touted as a locals' favorite. Dedicated terrain park skiers and snowboarders love to test out their tricks at Beaver Creek's parks, which also have some changes in store this season.  Beaver Creek has continued to invest in new programs at its resort, which is why the resort is proud of the recognition it has received by Ski Magazine readers, said resort spokeswoman Jen Brown. Vail Resorts spent about $80 million this year on improvements at all of its resorts.
