Beaver Creek Community Profile
Beaver Creek Resort’s motto is “Not Exactly Roughing It” and those who choose to live in this gated, bespoke community certainly echo the sentiment. From the access to a wide variety of entertainment (both active and cultural) to its sweeping views and Alps-inspired homes, Beaver Creek might be as far from “roughing it” that the Vail Valley gets.
Entering through the gates gives a definitive sense of arrival. Wind past the international flags that wave in honor of the FIS World Ski Championships that have been held here and you’ll get a sense of the caliber of athleticism that is displayed here. Of course, the slopes are open to all; Beaver Creek is home to some of best beginners’ terrain-with-a-view in the state. Oh, and did we mention the cookies that are distributed daily? These chocolate chip masterpieces are a can’t miss end to the day before après.
During the summer, these hills are alive with wildflowers and the sound of mountain bikers changing gears for challenging climbs and ascents. The Beaver Creek Hiking Center leads groups both small and large on excursions both short and epic. For those whose summers are measured by birdies and bogies, the Beaver Creek Golf Course provides challenging holes along with unparalleled views.
For those more culturally inclined, the opportunities are almost as expansive as the views. Home to the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC), world-class performances are just an escalator ride away. From Grammy-award winning singer/songwriters to internationally lauded performers, VPAC hosts a diverse blend of programming throughout the year.
Just as the amenities are varied, so are the real estate opportunities. Condominiums and fractional ownership opportunities exist in some of Beaver Creek’s most lauded hotels; single-family homes (that can fit several generations) are also available if you strike while the iron’s hot: These legacy properties are precious.
Through the end of July, both the number of transactions and sales volume — the price of those transactions — lagged behind 2018’s numbers by about 10%. According to the most recent data from Land Title Guarantee Company, that situation changed in August.
