Beaver Creek is fantastic. I really liked it. I did have a weird experience with one of the Ski School supervisors.

Seems very spread out- there is the Birds of Prey area for experts, and great beginners terrain, but in spite of their statistics, it felt like the blue runs were in the minority. we felt like we were spending a lot of ski time on cat walks trying to ski from Beaver Creek through to Arrowhead and back.

Beaver Creek (a Vail Resort) is hosting the 2015 Alpine Ski World Championships...which includes the downhill. It is quite a coincidence because the Beaver Creek Ski area is going downhill!!! Not only is there no more daytime grooming but their is no longer much night time grooming. Yesterday there were two slopes I found groomed. It was a bad time of year not to be grooming considering the amount of people on spring break and family vacations along with the fact it was warm during the day and below freezing at night which left crusted clumps of completely frozen snow/ice. Since Rob Katz became CEO all Vail Resorts have gone downhill. Prior to becoming CEO he was a venture capitalist and is treating the Vail owned ski area's like an investment that MUST make MONEY! Rather than the great ski area's they were.

I have skied at Vail for years and I have noticed that they have cut way back on their grooming of runs. I don't know whether they put all their efforts and machines in the Terrain Parks and Half Pipes, but that it what it looks like. Maybe they are sitting in their corporate offices on the Front Range and figuring out how to squeeze more money out of everything, from overpriced pay parking to less grooming, to way expensive food to ratcheting up season pass prices and ridiculous ski school pricing and figuring no one will notice!! Grooming was one of the things that kept that mountain, including a couple of runs in the back bowl doable for the thousands of visitors that ski there every year.

Tons of new snow and challenging powder conditions. The groomers worked and had the mountain in excellent shape each day.
