Jemma's Tales

Beaver Creek Mountain Village

March 20, 2019
I made a mountain journey this past weekend to Beaver Creek Mountain Village where I met up with my son, his wife and three grandchildren. Beaver Creek Mountain Village is sweetly nestled in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

When Colorado sought to host the 1976 Winter Olympics, Beaver Creek development was part of its successful bid in May 1970

The drive from our home is an easy 3 hour drive. I took highway 25 onto 470 West and intersected with 70 West which took me right into the middle of the glorious Rocky Mountains. The views were amazing and I popped open the sunroof (20 degrees) revved up the heater and the music too. Carole King was my radio companion for most of the way.

The Aspen Tree has always been a favorite of mine, any time of the year.

Beaver Creek ski area operates on National Forest System lands under special use permit to the White River National Forest. The 30-year permit assigns a portion of the bundle of rights associated with land ownership to the permit holder. All lifts, ski trails, and facilities must be approved by the Forest Service in advance prior to construction.

Winter snow storms move in quickly and move out just as fast!

My family treated me to a sleigh ride and dinner at Allie’s Cabin.

Sun-drenched days with mountain snows are some of my favorite way to spend Winter days. Of course family time makes it all the more fun!

Who can resist a Moose with flowers in her hair!

Tiny Tots who were in ski school.

Beaver Creek Resort has great customer service, friendly staff, good food, great music and well groomed slopes. Plenty of after skiing activities for children and adults too, and of course that warm chocolate chip cookie we had every day sure was good!

What better way to welcome the First Day of Spring than with a beautiful mix of flowers and snow!

Happy Spring Friends!
