above-average amenities; like a piece of vail
smaller than vail, little technical terrain
Good for big groups or families, Beaver Creek is a perfectly good option if you're in the area (and if Vail is too pricey/crowded for your liking). With decent parks and enough terrain to keep you busy for a day, I would definitely include this resort on the list, although I'd hesitate to spend more than a couple of days here. Also, Avon is essentially the ski town, with plenty of low-key things to do, especially if you're staying in the Beaver Creek West condos.
