Beaver Creek like a Spring Day

November 23, 2012 |

Was like a spring day today up in Beaver Creek.  With the little ones did the magic carpet a few times.  I often woder how many resorts have this type of covered Magic Carpet?  Cookies to start the day at the base of the lift too! Kids did a little bit of boot skiing after lunch.


Watch small video from Beaver Creek Gondola run.  Took the GoPro out today and will add this video and update the post when I am done. Read More

9am chair 8 and Gondola ONE open for lunch

November 21, 2012 |

Perfect conditions this morning!  Snowmaking is amazing and I think the best time to go is before noon.  Gondola ONE  is open for lunch but no skier access.  They will check your skis at bottom while you take the ride.  Great picture of Golden Peak from the Gondola.  Video of the small terrain park and extra video of the trail that goes to the village.  If they do the same tomorrow they will have a shuttle taking people back to Lionshead for those who choose to take a ride on the new gondola and/or eat lunch at The 10th.  Picture of Swingsville which looks like they are trying to get ready.

Chair 8 full run video

November 21, 2012 |

Two full run videos, one helmet cam and one camera in hand.  Turns out the video that I held in hand was much smoother, could have been the skiing too but I think hand held today was better.

Conditions were good and was not that crowded mid-day.  Terrain park a popular place!

Solaris Ice rink now open and popular this afternoon.

Watch the video:
