Beaver Creek is a resort community located on 5,000 acres in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Described by Sports Illustrated as “the last resort- a first class destination resort to rival the country’s best and biggest: Aspen, Vail, Sun Valley,” Beaver Creek has a capacity for 10,000 skiers, a central village for hotels, retail shops, restaurants, and basic facilities; an 18-hole golf course; a spa and tennis complex; and 3,200 residential units.
Beaver Creek is an environmentally-responsive development which required 52 public approvals. The project has been designed to the upper-level resort market, which demanded strong architectural controls. Village planning and design has virtually eliminated reliance upon automobiles with in the pedestrian village in response to air quality and land restrictions.
Beaver Creek received the 1991 Snow Country Magazine award for the Best Resort and the 1995 Ski Magazine Silver Eagle for Environmental Design.
