Spring skiing in Beaver Creek means longer days, warmer afternoons, great conditions and plenty of outdoor decks for apres-ski … It warms our January hearts just thinking about it.
If your family is ready to trade palm trees for snow skis this spring break, look no further than our Moving Mountains’ Guide to Spring Break in Beaver Creek.
Here are a few of our spring break favorites
Apres-ski takes on a whole new sheen when the temperatures are warmer, the lift line tunes are louder, and the sun is shining! No need to cozy up next to the fireplace because the festivities are usually heating up outside. Spring is the season apres-ski was made for. Here’s where to wear your sunscreen.
C-Bar, at Beaver Creek Chophouse (same owner), touts having the best deck in Beaver Creek. We’re certainly not arguing! Its enviable location at the base of chair 6 means its views span the slopes and, more importantly, they are perfectly positioned for those platters of homemade chocolate chip cookies Beaver Creek is famous for.
It’s been the unofficial “office” for the Beaver Creek ski patrol for the past 25 years. They’re a longtime favorite with their cold beer, warm hearts, and heated patio. Plus their prominent location in the Beaver Creek base area keeps it lively. Wash down their delicious tacos with a huge selection of tequilas, margaritas and Moscow mules.
Looking for a place to wear that Hawaiian shirt (just kidding, of course)? Try the Tiki Bar at Hooked. With tableside cooking and simmering seafood on the patio, you’ll get the best of both the mountains AND the ocean, all in one fabulous outdoor apres-ski setting
Dance into the wee hours
If you’re looking for late-night revelry in Beaver Creek, just hop in a High Mountain or Ride Taxi and head on over to Vail’s infamous nightlife scene.
Signature Spring Events
Beaver Creek’s Bloom
March 9 - March 30, 2020
February showers, bring March flowers? Well, that’s not exactly how the saying goes, but it is what happens this time of year in Beaver Creek. As winter starts to wind down and spring fever starts to crank up, Beaver Creek celebrates the snowy Colorado spring with beautiful flower displays, ice sculptures, parades, sparklers, a ski-in movie theatre, and retro-inspired pop-up sock hops. Relaxing live music fills the base area and your kids might even spot a fairy or two. We recommend skiing right into this enchanting spring celebration.
