Information & Facts
For those not interested in skiing or snowboarding while on
holiday in Beaver Creek, or simply needing a break from the daily
routine, the resort also offers snow-shoeing, dogsledding,
telemark, ice skating, cross-country skiing, and even hot air
ballooning. Beaver Creek is also noted for its spas, spread across
the resort. The Vila Center for the Arts hosts live performances,
comedy, and musicals for a passive night in. And once the snow has
melted and summer has arrived, Beaver Creek offers a fantastic golf
course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and a variety of other
activities including rafting and kayaking, hiking, mountain biking,
tennis and fly fishing.
English is the most common language but Spanish is often
spoken in south-western states.
The US Dollar (USD) is the unit of currency and is divided into
100 cents. Only major banks exchange foreign currency. ATMs are
widespread and credit cards and travellers cheques are widely
accepted. Travellers cheques should be taken in US Dollars to avoid
hassles. Banking hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm.
The Beaver Creek resort is pricey compared to others in the
Beaver Creek, though not renowned for an incredible nightlife,
does offer quieter, more sophisticated evenings at the Beaver Creek
Chophouse or Whiskey Elk. The Coyote Café is probably the only
place to get some dancing in and is popular with the locals.
There is something for every taste and price tag in Beaver
Creek, and for any time of day. Restaurants are located all across
the resort and on the mountain. Popular choices for breakfast
include Bivans or The Café, and for fine dining, Toscanini makes
exceptional Italian food, while SaddleRidge offers fantastic
seafood and venison. A meal on the mountain may well be worth the
price and what better way than arriving on a sleigh to a
five-course meal at Beano's or Allies Cabin. There are plenty of
delis, pizza parlours and burger joints spread across and up the
mountain for an in-between snack or light lunch.
Apart from offering a wide selection of skiing and snowboarding
gear, shopping in Beaver Creek includes jewellery, clothing,
furniture, arts and crafts and much more, throughout the villages.
Base Mountain Sports is the premier ski and snowboard servicing
shop for all tuning and waxing needs, while All Mountain Sports
offers the latest in ski technology equipment and gear. A variety
of gift shops offering Beaver Creek memorabilia are located
throughout the resort while other boutique stores offer everything
from fine wines to Swarovski Crystal.
