Fresh Place Friday: Beaver Creek, Colorado
Beaver Creek is one of the youngest cities in Colorado as it was settled in 1951. What makes this city so unique is the Beaver Creek Resort. This resort truly is the focal point of Beaver Creek, Colorado. Referred to as “The Tiffany’s of Ski Resorts” by Governor Richard Lamb, Beaver Creek Resort is the product of the ’76 Olympic Games. When Colorado was in the bidding process to host the 1976 Winter Olympic Games, the resort was built as a part of its deal. Aside from the resort being the first ever to be planned using 3-D computer modeling, Beaver Creek is a unique getaway for any group.
With the goal set that Beaver Creek Resort would be the perfect balance between architecture and natural landscape, construction was underway. Now, the resort is a hidden gem, tucked away by the mountains to create an intimate setting. Visitors travel from all over the world to experience the serenity, adventure and feeling of togetherness that is boasted by this world renowned resort. Beaver Creek is no stranger to accolades and awards for service, safety standards, food and environmental efforts. The design of the resort actually made sure that vehicles were offered limited space in order to preserve the natural ski trails and mountain settings.
Outside the Beaver Creek Resort there is a whole town full of beautiful scenery and landscape. While you’re here, make sure you check out the paragliding tours that offer an exciting way to tour the city. The Beaver Creek Chapel is also a must-see with its iconic steeple and stone bell. Finally, head over to the Beaver Creek Stables and check out all this quaint town has to offer on horseback!
