We love the Colorado Rockies. Beaver Creek is a gem of a resort, tucked away far from the highway, and we're always in awe of it's beauty as we drive up the mountain to our home. Beaver Creek and the surrounding area offers an abundance of shops and restaurants. We find it very easy to access. We can fly to Denver and then drive 21/2-3 hours or fly into Eagle Vail and drive 35 minutes. Eagle Vail has many direct flights from major cities in the winter season. Beaver Creek is truly a family resort. It has a world renowned children's ski school, and first class instructors for adults. Beaver Creek is small enough that you can never get lost, yet large enough to never have to ski the same run twice in a day. They have updated the lift system considerably since we came to the valley in 1997, so access to the more difficult and challenging areas has been made so convenient, and we get even more runs in, in a day! Our boys are serious hockey players and many days after skiing they will pop down to the town of Avon ( 8 min drive) and have a game of pick up hockey on the outdoor rink. Beaver Creek is well situated as it is close to many world class resorts, including Vail, which is only a 20 minute drive. After a full day of skiing, we love walking out our back door and hiking up the mountain. The serenity and peace is truly therapeutic, and watching the sun set from high atop, is magical. The other options after a full day, is to simply relax in the outdoor hot tub, do a few laps in the outdoor pool at the Hyatt, or Highlands Lodge, enjoy the spa and/or a treatment at a number of different hotels in the village, or just cosy up with a book around the wood burning fireplace.
The summer is a special time in the mountains. The colors are stunning, and the air has little or no humidity. There is mountain biking, rafting, hiking, tennis, golf e.t.c . At the end of the day you can enjoy the large deck with a bbq and soak in the beautiful views and the summer sky
At our home, you can walk to the village and stroll around watching the skaters on the village rink, or do some serious shopping at any number of luxury stores. Included in your winter stay at our home, is a weekly pass for up to 4 people at the Park Hyatt spa and gym. Also included, is daily housekeeping for a week stay or longer
