Four Seasons Vail or Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch?

Hi all!

I've never been to Vail/Beaver Creek area to ski, but I have a certificate to claim two free nights at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, so I'm thinking about staying for another 4-5 nights in the area.

I'm debating between FS Vail and RC BG, both have around the same price in late Jan.

RC has ski in/out access which I like, but I've always wanted to go to Vail and I always enjoy the nightlife in ski towns so FS Vail sounds perfect for me too.

Any thoughts plz?

For nightlife the Four Seasons Vail is perfectly located. The Ritz is more isolated, a beautiful property, but in a quiet area. Since you'll have a couple days in Beaver Creek, I would go for variety and head to Vail for the others, same ski pass for both mountains.

I agree - go to Vail for the second part of your trip. WAY more nightlife. More ski terrain too. Four Seasons is a 5 minute walk to the slopes. I like the Lodge at Vail. Not as new or fancy, but old school, classy, and i think the best location in Vail.

For sure go to the Four Seasons in Vail. I've done a few stays at Ritz and never impressed. Building is kind of nice, location remote, service not at Ritz level. Four Seasons is fantastic, lots going on in Vail and a great change of pace from Beaver Creek. You'll love the Park Hyatt. Amazing location, good recent renovations, great village access, etc. Was there last weekend.

Have fun.
