Beaver Creek Luxury in the Rugged Rockies
Things To Do in Beaver Creek
Incredible ski slopes are just the beginning of the wonders of Beaver Creek, Colorado. Look out your vacation home rental and see the beautiful mountain range that surrounds you, and you won't be able to stay inside. With trails, tours, and even a chair lift, you have every option of seeing the best of Colorado on vacation in Beaver Creek.
Outside ski-in ski-out Beaver Creek condos, the slopes offer every level of skiing, providing the perfect place for a broad group of people. Snow boarding is also a favorite on the mountain. Hire an instructor for your group, join a tour, or just head outside to get the best of Colorado skiing. You can also take a look at the extensive cross country ski trails as well. Once you are worn out with skis, take a snowmobiling tour, or try an afternoon of dog sledding. Then you can come home to your cozy vacation home and begin a movie marathon.
Trails and Hiking
You simply cannot visit Beaver Creek without taking at least a scenic drive around the mountains. The views are simply incredible. Of course, the best way to see the mountain ranges is through a hike. Beaver Lake Trail is a moderate to difficult hiking trail that comes highly recommended, especially if you plan to go on only one hike while visiting. However, be sure to take plenty of water with you, as it is not unusual to get dehydrated. At such a high elevation, dehydration can easily cause altitude sickness, especially if you are from a lower elevation.
Not up for an intense hike? Call up one of the local stables and ask them about their guided horse back riding tours. A chair lift ride is also a great way to see the area, as it takes you over 10,000 feet. For a more spectacular view, there is also tandem paragliding; while your guide takes care of the flying, you are free to take plenty of pictures and enjoy the Colorado view.
If one hike isn't enough for you, you can take on some of the many 14,000 feet mountains in the area with mountaineering or rock climbing. Mountain biking is also a great way to see the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Want even more adventure? Try a rafting excursion, or relax a little with fly fishing.
Spas and Health Clubs
There are several spas in the area, each with their own specialty. The Beaver Creek Pool and Health Club gives kids a place to swim even in the winter. It is also the perfect place to go blow off some steam in the gym. Allegria Spa is the perfect place for a girls getaway, offering indoor and outdoor hot tubs, as well as a great variety of options for massages. And, of course, nothing is more relaxing than a golf course with a spectacular view of the mountains. An hour or two with such beautiful scenery is bound to improve both your game and your mood.
Looking for a great family day out? Try a hot air balloon ride. Otherwise, you can take a rafting trip, go on a hike, or go on a sleigh ride. The city is always putting on kids programs, so be sure to call the city office and ask what events they have going on.
Not only will you be staying in the most beautiful part of Colorado, but you will be pampered by a spacious rental home that gives you the privacy and peace you need. After a vacation of skiing, hiking, and relaxing, you will be a new person after your stay at Beaver Creek, Colorado.
