Cookie Time

There’s nothing better than a fresh baked cookie straight from the oven. Actually there’s one thing better than that, a free one! Every afternoon at 3pm the chefs of Beaver Creek bake up some of the yummiest cookies around, big, fat, filled with chocolate chips and warm gooey dough. Then they hand them out to skiers and boarders looking for a sugar fix towards the end of a ripping ski day.

White Carpet Club

There is luxury and then there’s the White Carpet Club, a private retreat for members and guests (minimum 3 days temporary membership) in the heart of Beaver Creek village steps from the Centennial Express Lift. The lounge offers private lockers, boot dryers, ski valet, preferred parking, concierge, coffee and pastries, restaurant bookings and more. Think of it as your own butler with a comfy couch!


White Gloves First Tracks

On select days throughout the season, Beaver Creek throws open the mountain early for select guests only.
