As the world's best luxury family resort, Beaver Creek is the place to relax, indulge, and explore this season. While maintaining the traditions it's known and loved for, Beaver Creek will introduce new experiences and adventures for everyone for 2022/23. McCoy Park is in its sophomore season, offering beginner and intermediate natural, groomed and gladed runs for all adventurers. The beloved Cookie Time is a decades-old tradition, with the aroma of delicious chocolate chip cookies sweeping through the village. But there's more than just sweet treats at the resort this season: Allie's, Zach's, and Beano's fine dining cabins on the mountain offer bucket-list culinary experiences, with snowcat-drawn sleigh rides to elevated epicurean escapes. In the intimate alpine village, refined luxury abounds, elevated by recent and ongoing investments in infrastructure, as well as art and activation that create a buzz about the base area.

Beaver Creek: A Culinary Destination for All Ages 
Cookie Time, Cabin Dining at Allie’s, Beano’s and Zach’s, and culinary adventures at the Ice Cream Parlour, Candy Cabin and Cookie Cabin create an incredible culinary experience at Beaver Creek! 
Cookie Time  
Beaver Creek is known for its beloved Cookie Time! Freshly baked, warm and gooey cookies meet skiers, snowboarders and village visitors every afternoon at 3:00 pm at the bottom of Haymeadow and Centennial Express Lifts. Delectable, melt-in-your-mouth cookies have been a Beaver Creek staple for many years, with more than 500,000 cookies baked each season. What’s not to love?  
Elevating Cabin and Fine Dining to New Heights 
Cabin dining at Beaver Creek remains committed to providing a world-class experience and serving gourmet fare while surrounded by mountain splendor. Dinner at our three fine dining cabins, Beano’s, Zach’s and Allie’s, is accessible by Beaver Creek Snow Cat-pulled sleigh, an experience to surprise and delight guests under moonlit and star-dotted skies. Beano’s Cabin will continue to elevate fine dining into a feast for the senses, awakening the appetite with a gourmet menu paired with a breathtaking wine list, while Allie’s serves up comforting and refined Northern Italian cuisine and Zach’s shares Alsatian favorites like satiating fondue and opulent oysters. 
Dinner at Allie’s Cabin
Guests are whisked from the Beaver Creek Village to the cabin via an open-air sleigh, welcomed warmly and treated to gourmet fare. Dine alongside the glowing floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and enjoy sweeping views of the Beaver Creek Village below, as well as time together in the intimate space of one of Beaver Creek’s three exquisite on-mountain fine-dining restaurants. Traditionally renowned for an atmosphere of rustic and intimate elegance, Allie’s Cabin pours forth a refined, classic Northern Italian fare.  
Dinner at Beano’s Cabin
The award-winning restaurant sits atop the slopes of Beaver Creek Resort within the White River National Forest. Nestled in a mountain meadow that was once a lettuce patch and home to the pioneer farmer and restaurant namesake Frank “Beano” Bienkowski, this luxurious log cabin truly elevates fine dining into a feast for the senses. Ascending to Beano’s Cabin awakens the appetite for the gourmet menu that is accompanied by a breathtaking wine list. The ride to Beano’s Cabin provides spectacular views of towering Grouse Mountain and Larkspur Bowl. Upon arrival, a cozy stone hearth and blazing fire welcomes you to chase away the evening chill lingering from the excursion up. Antler chandeliers light up the vaulted ceilings and make the wall of windows in the dining room shine. An open kitchen design allows guests to immediately enjoy the sights and smells of the meal to come. 
Dinner at Zach’s Cabin
Perched on the mountainside high above Bachelor Gulch with the uninterrupted views of the magnificent Gore Range, Zach's is the epitome of fine dining at its peak. Guests are whisked away for a starlit sleigh ride, pulled by a Beaver Creek Snow Cat. Famous for its artful assemblage of fresh Alsatian fare featuring the finest regional and seasonal ingredients paired with excellent vintages for the perfect dinner experience. 
Debuting an entirely new menu and concept last season, Citrea combines Colorado ingredients with modern culinary interpretations of Mediterranean cuisine. Located in the heart of Beaver Creek Village, alongside the ice rink, Citrea focuses on upscale dining and offers guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in a sophisticated and high-energy setting. With a patio alongside the Beaver Creek Village ice rink, Citrea is the perfect place to relax and unwind for Après.   
Culinary Adventures for the Entire Family 
The Ice Cream Parlour
Located at the top of Haymeadow Express Gondola (#1), the Ice Cream Parlour offers nostalgic ice cream novelties, or a quick soup and sandwich lunch. Menu offerings include root beer floats, ice cream by the scoop, house-made hot chocolate, grilled cheese, tomato soup, and more. The Ice Cream Parlour is accessible by skis and by foot, and for foot passengers, a lift ticket is not required to ride Haymeadow Express Gondola.  
Beaver Creek Candy Cabin
The Beaver Creek Candy Cabin gained fast fame among guests when it opened its doors during winter 2014/15. Located at the top of Strawberry Park Express and Upper Beaver Creek Mountain Express lifts, the Cabin’s vintage candy store design of yesteryear invites kids and kids-at-heart to explore myriad palate-pleasing sweets – and to discover local artisan craft chocolates found exclusively at the Candy Cabin. Other popular selections include bulk candy sold by the pound and classic Pepsi products made with real cane sugar. It’s the sweetest place at 9840’. 
Beaver Creek Cookie Cabin
A Beaver Creek tradition rises to new heights at Red Buffalo Park’s Cookie Cabin. The interior of the Cookie Cabin is open as a special experience for Beaver Creek’s ski and snowboard school guests, where students can stop in for chocolate chip cookies and hot cocoa throughout the day. Designed to welcome kids and adults alike with a comfortable and cozy environment, the Cookie Cabin offers the rest and relaxation students need between exhilarating runs at the top of the mountain.

Signature Parks Collection: Learn. Explore. Connect.  
Beaver Creek is home to the most dedicated learning terrain in Colorado. With the founding of Beaver Creek’s Signature Parks Collection, beginner and intermediate skiers have more terrain built for their skill level than ever before, including last year’s McCoy Park expansion: 250 acres of terrain tailored to learning. These dedicated learning areas provide beginner terrain that mimics the setting of advanced trails, granting guests of all ski levels a chance to explore more of the mountain on terrain they are comfortable skiing and snowboarding. The Signature Parks Collection is specifically designed for beginner through intermediate skier and riders to inspire confidence, progressively improve skills, and evoke a sense of wonder and accomplishment. 
With three progressive parks, the Signature Parks Collection offers an extraordinary ski experience for beginner and intermediate skiers who can feel comfortable on the terrain while also discovering the amazing treasures Beaver Creek Mountain has to offer, such as mountain-top vistas, groomed glades, adventure zones and access to world-class dining. These terrain areas, combined with the Cookie Cabin, Candy Cabin and Ice Cream Parlour make Beaver Creek Kids Ski and Snowboard School the industry-leading kids learning experience. 
McCoy Park
Last season, Beaver Creek added 250 acres of lift-served, welcoming ski terrain for beginner and intermediate skiers & riders to elevate their mountain experience.? The McCoy Park investment is a commitment to the guest experience which will delight skiers and riders of all ages and abilities. A dedicated family friendly learning zone with an amazing natural feel, including signature groomed, gladed trails, McCoy Park is a place for the entire family to connect with nature and each other in an accessible bowl setting. As the third installment of the Signature Parks Collection, McCoy Park offers 17 trails serviced by two new quad lifts, while maintaining snowshoe and cross-country areas.  McCoy Park comes with a brand-new warming hut – Eaton Haus – offering a view of the Colorado Rockies that most guests have never seen before.    
Red Buffalo Park
To improve the experience for beginner and intermediate skiers and further establish Beaver Creek as the world’s best luxury family resort, Beaver Creek Resort debuted a new 200-acre family learning area accessed by a new high-speed lift in Dec. 2017. Red Buffalo Park, located at the mountain’s highest elevation, 11,440 feet, provides 13 trails designated as a family adventure zone and features family-friendly amenities such as snow sculptures, Kids Adventure Zones, and a dedicated Ski School Skills Zone. At the heart of the experience, the new Red Buffalo Express Lift (#5), a high-speed quad, allows for easier access to the dedicated beginner terrain while decreasing lift lines and providing a shorter, 4.3-minute ride to the top of the mountain.  Red Buffalo Park ensures that beginner skiers and riders get to experience the best views on the mountain. 
Haymeadow Park
Following the debut of Red Buffalo Park during the 2017-2018 season, Beaver Creek Resort debuted a second signature learning area in 2018-19. At the heart of Haymeadow Park are a beginner gondola and lift, Haymeadow Express Gondola (#1) and Highlands Lift (#2), plus adjacent magic carpets designed for beginner skiers and riders of all ages. Beaver Creek’s innovative learning terrain is designed around creating the most enjoyable beginner experience with terrain features perfectly sculpted to ensure a guests’ first skiing and riding experience is positive. Terrain improvements include a learning area with a beginner race course, Buffalo Bumps and Berms, and Ske-Cology environmental learning.
