This place was super convenient for skiing Beaver Creek, as the title of this review suggests. It was also easy to ski back to the place with virtually no schlepping either way.
The location was less convenient for getting into the Beaver Creek base village, as it entailed a 5-10 minute walk along and across the modestly busy access road, and the property driveway and sidewalk were not fully cleared of ice and snow, nor protected from the shuttle buses and cars passing by. But it really wasn't bad, and was downhill on the way home. (Getting to Vail was also less than ideal. We took a small shuttle from Borders with our equipment up to the BC Village then stood in line to take a bus 25 minutes to Vail, then walked quite a distance from the bus depot through Vail Village, which was all somewhat difficult with ski boots on. Turns out they had relatively convenient lockers for about $5, which would have been better!)
Borders consists of a couple of 4-5 story buildings with hotel-like lobbies and elevator access to multiple condos on each floor. It was very convenient for our group of approximately 25 folks to visit one another all while staying in the building.
The decor seems to vary among units, but the ones I saw were all nice, and the space was very good particularly in our end unit. The units have decent kitchens with enough cookware and dinnerware to eat in comfortably.
The pool and hot tub looked nice and were enjoyed by many in our group, although the place keeps the pool covered most of the time, and one has to request that they uncover it.
Flatscreen TVs were pretty small for superbowl watching, but that was a minor issue, and there was a common room off the lobby with a larger TV that was opened up for anyone who wanted to use it.
