It doesn't get any better! Vail is huge and has terrain for everyone. Beaver Creek has some of the best glade and tree skiing I've ever had!

“Ski for a day at Beaver Creek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

We recently spent two weeks skiing in Vail region and spent one day at Beaver Creek. It was good, very picturesque and worth skiing there for a day but the runs and lifts didn't seem that well connected so it wasn't easy to move around the ski field. It was enjoyable but the skiing at Vail and Breckenridge is better and more extensive.
We had lunch at Mamies Mountain grill which was lovely - great views and good food.
Some of the other reviews mention the parking at Beaver Creek - we were fortunate to get some good advice from a local - park at one of the bottom car parks either Bear or Wolf parking lot, they are just off the main road route 6 and are free to park for the day. There is a shuttle bus that takes you to the lifts and it is a very efficient service. Get there early though as the parking lots fill up quickly.

“Vail resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

Very well organized skiing with terrain to suit all levels. Excellent place to eat but ridiculously expensive. $20 is typical for a snack.
Check out the hand fed Grey Jays at the top of the Mountain top lift.
