New Sweet Treat Candy Cabin Open for Beaver Creek’s Holiday Guests

24 December 2014
Beaver Creek, Colo., Dec. 24, 2014 — Holiday guests can sweeten their ski day when they discover Beaver Creek’s new on-mountain Candy Cabin, which boasts barrels of candy, locally made chocolates and dispensers full of sweet treats inside the cozy, custom-built cabin. The alpine-decorated cabin, was built using the area’s unique blue-hued pine beetle kill wood, and is nestled at the top of Strawberry Park Express Lift (chair 12) and Upper Beaver Creek Mountain Express Lift (chair 18). The outdoor deck with mountaintop views is lined with picnic tables and greets guests who pop off their skis to walk inside.
“We sought to add something special that all ages would appreciate, from the kids who love sweet treats after skiing to adults who will appreciate the nostalgia of the old fashioned candy store,” said Beaver Creek’s Food & Beverage Director, Eric Pottorff. “This unique cabin puts an instant smile on everyone’s face. You can sit back and relax on the deck or picnic table or take your candy with you in the candy to-go bags.”
Candy options vary from taffies to lollipops, gummy candies, sour candies, chocolate malt balls and more. Locally made, Mootz Chocolates, are on display and offer light and dark chocolate bars and chocolates molded into ski boots, snowflakes, and snowmen. Old fashioned Pepsi products made with real cane sugar are presented in a Pepsi cold-cooler to wash down the sweets with. Candy bags are weighed by the quarter pound right inside the cabin.
The sights and tastes of the Candy Cabin will tantalize the senses this holiday season as well as the rest of the winter ski season. Candy Cabin hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
