Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
Beaver Creek Ski Resort
Beaver Creek is a feast for the eyes; a delight for the senses.
Beaver Creek Mountain was originally designed to accommodate skiers of all ability levels, with a specific focus on winter recreation. That design proved timeless and today the mountain is enjoyed by a variety of winter and summer sports enthusiasts.
Beaver Creek Mountain is known for its unique diversity, exceptional snow quality and an award-winning ski and snowboard school.
When George Townsend first settled the Beaver Creek Valley in 1881, he knew he'd found something special. In 1972, Vail continued the vision by purchasing the land and beginning a detailed planning process.
