Beaver Creek Ski Vacation

Mar 20, 2008
With the worldwide popularity of Vail, many don't know that if you drive just about 5 more minutes west, you'll find the gem in Avon, Colorado that is Beaver Creek. The shopping, dining, hiking, biking and views in Beaver Creek is second to none.

Beaver Creek is famous for its catering to many rich and famous figures because of its world class amenities. It's true that you can find unbelievable dining and lodging, but you don't have to be royalty to enjoy Beaver Creek.

The Coyote Café serves great Mexican food and features an enormous selection of microbrews. The Blue Moose serves authentic New York style Pizza in a great high country atmosphere. If you really want to be pampered, take a horseback or horse drawn wagon ride up the mountain to Beano's Cabin, a four diamond gem whose service and cuisine are world famous.

There are chairlift rides that allow you to bring your mountain bike up the mountain the easy way for incredible Colorado mountain biking and unbelievable views of the Gore Range. High altitude hiking almost requires a camera. The views are spectacular!

Lodging in Beaver Creek extends from the highest end for those who want to stay in the Marriot. People who would like to save some money can stay at the Christie Lodge in Avon, and enjoy both this quaint Colorado town and the Resort of Beaver Creek.

The Beaver Creek Golf Course is challenging, beautiful, and will make you think that your game has gotten much longer. The golf ball flies considerably further at high elevations, so step back a club!

The Eagle River flows right through the town of Avon, and fishing in Colorado rarely gets better. Gore Creek Fly Fisherman Inc. will help you choose the bait, lures or flies that are sure to land you that big brown trout. The Eagle River flow affords some fantastic whitewater rafting and Nova Guides or Lakota River Guides can take you on a leisurely float or scoot you through exciting whitewater.

The shopping at Beaver Creek is boutique chic. If you buy, get ready for compliments and queries of "Where did you buy that?" because all shops carry one of a kind items.

And for those looking for a Colorado wedding, you could hardly find a better spot. Beaver Creek offer the best in wedding planning and packages.

When most people think of summer vacations, Colorado usually isn't the first place that comes to mind. But those at the Beaver Creek Resort in Colorado hope that you do consider their resort this summer because once you visit you'll wonder why it took you so long to discover it.

One of the best things to do upon arriving in Beaver Creek Resort in the summer time is to explore the area by a variety of means. Guests have been known to enjoy the Rocky Mountains via horseback, mountain bike, 4-wheelers and even hot air balloons.

The resort also offers guided hikes for those who want to be adventurous but would rather do it with some guidance. After exploring the resort and the beautiful Colorado scenery, take your pick of any number of other summertime activities that the resort and the surrounding towns of Avon and Edwards have to offer.

Some visitors stop by the Beaver Creek Golf Course, a championship 18-hole golf course, to see why the resort was named one of the "Top 75 Golf Resorts in North America" by Golf Digest magazine.

Other visitors try half and/or full day trips fly fishing. These guided tours take anglers to the best place to find fish and they guarantee a great time.

If you're looking for a bite to eat, there are plenty of places to curb your hunger. Some favorites include: Bivans, The Blue Moose, The Dusty Boot Steakhouse and Saloon and Rocks Modern Grill.

The towns at the base of the resort (Avon and Edwards) provide accommodations for all budgets and needs from cabins and hotels, to inns and motels.

Shoppers will also enjoy the wide variety of galleries, shops and boutiques. Visitors can not only buy some great art from local Colorado artisans but they can also stock up on skiing gear for the upcoming winter months.

Even though you may have gone south for the summer in the past, this year maybe you should check out Colorado and the Beaver Creek Resort, because maybe you're idea of a summer vacation is hidden in the Rocky Mountains.

Beaver Creek, in summer or winter, will be a trip you'll never forget!
