After staying at the Ritz in Bachelor Gulch a few years ago, my wife and I decided that we wanted to buy a place inside of Beaver Creek resort. We looked at more than ten properties, and fell in love with Bear Paw the moment we arrived. Its location on the mountain is special, including ski in/ski out access, a short hike to/from the Ritz (which is perfect during summer months), and enough distance from the Ritz and Beaver Creek Village to be a quiet and private location. We were even more impressed by the quality of the construction, the beautiful log cabin look, the size and comfort of the units, and the amazing common areas (lounge with fireplace, swimming pool and three hot tubs on the side of the mountain). Since then we have gone back every winter during ski season as well as several summers to enjoy what is a very well-kept secret: summers in the Vail valley.
