Vail really has better skiing than Beaver Creek in terms of the quality of the snow and the variety of the runs. We did two days skiing at each--but I would load my days to Vail, given the proximity.

I have been skiing all over the world and for what this resort costs take the family to Europe or Canada. If your heart is set on the valley, head to Keystone. Beaver creek is great for green run resort skiing, but there are few...More

We’ve been going to Beaver Creek since 1986 when we first learned to ski. The ski school is excellent and three generations of our family have learned to ski there.

Stayed in a private home on the resort and visited both villages; Beaver Creek and Vail. Beaver creek is smaller and more intimate setting. Something for everyone at both of these resort villages. BC is smaller of two, so you can see the whole village...More

These resorts are by far my favorites! Skiing / boarding for every skill level from beginner to expert. The restaurants and shopping leaves one wanting for nothing. Also, there is plenty of other activities for those that may not care to ski....dog sledding, sleigh rides...More

Machines worked for two days and created a monster half pipe out of ice and snow for the WInter Olympic Qualifications. Its a lovely place to visit summer or winter, but winter is when it's really a buzzing community.

Agree with the previous answer -- go to Vail. Many more options for shopping and lunches. Get off the shuttle at the main Vail Village stop. Lots to see and do!!
