Hi, we were in Beaver Creek once a couple years ago. I wish I remembered more! We stayed at St. James. Though I realize it gets mostly good reviews, our room was dumpy, service was bad and I don't really want to return. Of the charter or elkhorn, which is closer to ski school? 3 kids under 10 skiing, two are early intermediates, one is a true beginner. Elkhorn Lodge bills itself as ski in/ski out but upon further research, I don't think so -- not with young children.
Is Charter any better? Is it any closer? Both say they are in Beaver Creek Village, I sort of remember St. James as being the "end of line" in terms of being in the village itself. Love the Hyatt but their "residences" are a little pricey during peak periods. I am also open to other ideas, involving easy "commutes" to ski school. Many thanks!
