Vail / Beaver Creek Resorts Colorado

Vail / Beaver Creek Resorts Colorado

Like Nothing On Earth

The legend of Vail begins with its world-famous back bowls: six miles of wide-open slopes, buried under 30 feet of dry Colorado powder.  With 5,000 acres of skiable terrain, there's enough to satisfy every level of skier/rider.  Plus, you can get to the top quicker than ever before by using Vail's 10-passenger gondola - the fastest of its kind in North America.

Resort Overview

Vail is recognized worldwide as one of the premier ski areas on the planet, so there's no surprise that it's been voted North America's Number 1 ski resort in 13 of the last 18 years.

Beaver Creek is the perfect complement to Vail, with 1,805 acres of diverse terrain.  There's no need to rough it at Beaver Creek.  Just take an escalator up to the slopes, and enjoy the immaculate grooming, mouthwatering cuisine, and vibrant entertainment.
