This upscale resort offers hugely varied terrain, with runs to suit skiers of all abilities. With neighboring Vail the more renowned of the two resorts, Beaver Creek is an exclusive and secluded resort, with the luxury hotels, fast chair-lifts and well-groomed slopes coming at a very high expense. Indeed, such is the resort's exclusivity, only members are privy to the best mountain restaurants. However, if the price isn't a problem, the skiing is enjoyable, especially for beginners, as the majority of the beginners' trails are located at the top of the mountain, resulting in a true 'ski-down-the-mountain' experience. Intermediates have plenty of choice, with 30 percent of slopes deemed as suitable, whilst advanced skiers can test themselves on the array of steep double-diamond runs. Non-skiers can take advantage of the other winter sports on offer, spas and fitness centres, as well as the chic shops. With the bars closing at 12:30 each night, Vail would be a better bet for a lively night out.
