We visited Beaver Creek for the first time July 16-24, 2005. The area is beautiful of course and we had a lot of fun! It's pricey, but we expected that. Suggest you don't go unless you are really into outdoor activities. Not much to do otherwise in the summer. Natives are a little snooty, but it kind of comes with the price. You may not like it if you are republican or conservative. Middle aged and older? Take it easy the first few days - you'll be winded due to the altitude (8,000 - 9,000 ft ASL). The restaurants are Ok - but not the caliber we expected - some are closed in the summer. Services in the summer are few and far between and expensive. What you'll pay $50 for in a short supply of groceries at a condo back east, you'll have to pay $100 for in Beaver Creek. 80% of services you'll go to nearby Avon, CO for. The Charter is nice, but is mostly no-frills. They tried to stick us with the condo near the laundry before we complained. Funny - another review on Trip Advisor also warned about this practice and after we had been there a few days, we passed a family who they were trying to stick that condo with ! ;) Finally after many complaints, we were moved to our third condo in the complex that was nice. The place is clean and has good housekeeping, but the condos have many fixutres etc that are broken or have to be fixed, like a running toliet or inoperable ceiling fan. If you are used to Ritz-Carlton or other upscale hotel like us, go there because they are nearby. We had to complain more than we normally would at the Charter. The concierge was likewise, mediocre. We enjoyed the pool and highly recommend Grouse Mountain Grill (Wonderful food, atmosphere and dining experience!!). The Lakota off-road Hummer experience is good and other side trips are pretty readily available, but expensive. Bring your bank and plan ahead! Tennis court facilities were great. Climate superb even though at peak of temperatures period. We'd recommend it, but there's other places to go - might try it in the winter.
