Blue-square lovers and groomer aficionados will fall in love with Beaver Creek’s terrain. Thanks to a deep range of meticulously groomed, wide-open cruisers made for arching big turns—Beaver Creek intermediate skiing is one of the resort’s best attributes.
In fact, intermediates have more than 800 acres of blue-square options. Every morning skiers and snowboarders make their way to the base are for first chair, not in search of powder stashes (which the resort has many of), but because the promise of untouched, pristine groomers is too good to sleep in.
Beaver Creek Intermediate Terrain
You’ll want to base your blue-square skiing off the Larkspur Express Lift, thanks to the vast intermediate accessibility it employs. Spacious intermediate terrain rolls throughout the area, and provides convenience to Birds of Prey—the World Cup alpine racing venue.
Don’t-miss runs in this area include the Larkspur run and Coyote Glade near the Bachelor Gulch lift, which offers great intermediate tree skiing.
Beaver Creek also provides ideal terrain for the intermediate skiers or snowboarder who’s on the verge of becoming an advanced intermediate. The groomed black diamonds at Beaver Creek are perfect for challenging yourself without feeling like you’re in over your head. Most of the runs underneath and near the Centennial Express Lift are designated as black diamond, but can also be enjoyed by plucky intermediates. Another great way to hurdle yourself onto the next level of progression is to take a lesson with Beaver Creek’s awarding-winning ski school.
Beaver Creek Mountain Tours
First-time visitors of intermediate ability or above should take advantage of Beaver Creek’s complimentary guided mountain tours. You’ll be able to get a lay of the land much quicker, and thus capitalize on your ski vacation time, enjoying terrain that’s best for you. The tours meet at 10 a.m. at the top of the Centennial Express Lift.
