Beaver Creek, a smaller ski resort located near the much larger Vail Mountain, offers 1,832 skiable acres, three terrain parks and 25 lifts. Its ski-school is top notch, ideal for new skiers and kids.

Plus, Beaver Creek is famous for its complimentary chocolate-chip cookies. Cookie Time chefs greet skiers at the foot of the slopes with silver trays full of warm cookies starting at 3 p.m. Now, that’s service!

Here’s another fun fact: Beaver Creek is home to the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, the World Cup, and the Talons Challenge.
