History

The Beaver Creek Vision

Beaver Creek is a feast for the eyes; a delight for the senses. The influence of renowned resorts such as Switzerland's St. Moritz, Italy's Cortina, and Spain's Val d'Aran led to the creation of a unique mountain resort full of excitement and village luxury.

Originally designed to accommodate skiers of all abilities, Beaver Creek Mountain continues to welcome and challenge those who visit her slopes. From the gentle groomed runs of Strawberry Park to the rugged glades and bump runs of Grouse Mountain, Beaver Creek is enjoyed by a variety of nordic sports enthusiasts.

When George Townsend first settled in the valley in 1881, he knew he'd found something special- an exceptional mountain, lined with aspen groves and beautiful vistas that would become a world renowned destination. In 1972, Vail continued his vision by purchasing the land and began designing a resort that combined western hospitality and European charm. Obstacles delayed resort completion, but on December 15, 1980, Beaver Creek finally opened to the public.

Major events have always found a home at Beaver Creek. The mountain was named as a potential site for the 1976 Winter Olympics. In 1989, the resort hosted the World Ski Championships. For the last several years Beaver Creek has hosted the Birds of Prey ™ World Cup Downhill Ski race which brings together hundreds of athletes as they compete to be named World Champion.

Beaver Creek is also popular as a summertime adventure destination hosting such events as the TransRockies Run and the Jeep King of the Mountain series.

In December 2005, Beaver Creek celebrated 25 years of resort excellence, and continues to be a resort industry leader in guest service and terrain maintenance.
