Best Ski-in Ski-Out Hotels in Beaver Creek

Back in the day, when I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, my friends & I spent nearly every winter weekend on the slopes.  The “Epic Pass” cost less than $500 back then ~ & did we ever get our money’s worth!  Though Vail gets more international buzz: Beaver Creek has long been one of my favorite Colorado ski resorts.  Its smaller & more intimate than Vail, less overwhelming, with fewer visitors, & gets virtually the same amount of snowfall each year.  To get you right up close to the mountain, in this article we’ll dig into the best ski-in ski-out hotels in Beaver Creek!

Vail gets more buzz & has more acreage: but Beaver Creek sees far less visitors, as it’s 20-minutes further from Denver. Beaver Creek is known for its luxury hotels, excellent grooming on runs, & plenty of family-friendly terrain.

Map of Beaver Creek Hotels

Every hotel listed here can be found in the main village, which is aptly called Beaver Creek Village.  There’s an outdoor ice rink & plenty of shops, restaurants, & bars.  The ONLY hotel not located here is the Ritz Carlton, which is located at the base of Bachelor Gulch Express Lift ~ an area known for its blue & green runs.

1. The Osprey at Beaver Creek ($189+) = Best VALUE

At The Osprey at Beaver Creek, you’re not only located directly next to the Strawberry Park Express Lift (which takes you to black, blue, AND green trails) ~ but with gorgeous, modern rooms available for less than $200/night, this wins my award for the “Best Value on the Mountain!”  In a town where hotels typically go for several hundred a night: The Osprey is a stand-out.  Amenities include: an outdoor pool, hot tub, heated underground parking, mountain views, ideal location in the center of Beaver Creek Village, & within walking distance to over 20 restaurants. 

 Note: this is the absolute closest hotel, other than the Ritz Carlton, to the ski lifts!

Closest Ski Lift: Strawberry Park Express Lift

Everyone wants a hot tub after a long day of skiing: & you’ll find both pool & hot tub at The Osprey.

The Osprey is located directly next to the Strawberry Park Ski Lift at Beaver Creek, which takes you to black, blue, AND green runs.

“Nevermind the ridiculously close proximity to all the lifts & everything you could want to see in the resort, the staff at the [Osprey] hotel was what made our trip & we are so grateful.” – Walker D.

2. Hyatt Residence Club ($559) = Perfect for Families!

As you can see on the map above, the Hyatt Residence Club is located just a touch further from the lifts than The Osprey; you’ll go up just a few escalators to reach them.  BUT: their Ski Valet will take care the details for you, making the experience seamless.  Rooms are available as studios, 2 or 3-bedrooms ~ & most come with kitchens; this is more like staying in a condo than a hotel, hence the higher price tag.  Two families could easily share one of the larger rooms.  Reviews here are near-perfect, even though rooms aren’t the most luxurious around: Trip Advisor lists this as the #1-Most Highly Rated Resort in Beaver Creek.

Closest Ski Lift: Equal-distance to 3 lifts: Elkhorn (back of resort), Strawberry Park, & Centennial Express (which gets you closer to the top of the mountain).

Rooms at the Residence Club are quintessential mountain lodge & a little more “down-home” than the other hotels listed here.

In order to reach the slopes from the Hyatt Residence Club, you’ll need to walk through the village & go up a few escalators.

“Go out the door & walk about 100 feet towards the Village Center, go up an escalator & you are right next to the Village Ice Rink and all the shops and restaurants. Short stroll thru the village, up two more escalators & you are on the mountain!” – Dee B.

3. Beaver Creek Lodge ($160+) = Adult Getaway

Also located right in the heart of Beaver Creek Village, Beaver Creek Lodge is just a tiny further walk from the slopes than The Osprey.  This all-suite hotel has more of an adult-vibe than the Residence Club, & bathrooms here are HUGE ~ so if that’s your thing, book a room here.  Amenities include: hot tub, pool, sauna, steam room, flat-screen TV’s, ski concierge, private balconies, & fireplaces in most rooms. 

But Note: Reviews here aren’t as enthusiastic as the other hotels listed; it’s mentioned their service is at times lacking.

The Beaver Creek Lodge has upscale accommodations & a tasteful, modern feel.

“Beaver Creek Lodge is centrally located about 100 feet away from the lifts. We offer complimentary ski valet & Christy Sports is in our building for your tuning & equipment needs.” – Athena M.

4. Park Hyatt Resort & Spa ($599)

Located right next to Beaver Creek Lodge in the Village, the Park Hyatt Resort & Spa is, in my opinion, an even better option for an adult ski getaway.  Rooms are spacious & modern, & both the lobby & sitting areas (which Beaver Creek Lodge lacks) are simply stunning.  Here, you’ll find a pool, hot tubs, blackout curtains, robes, bar & lounge, babysitting available, & massages & other body treatments available in their gorgeous Exhale Spa.  For the discerning customer who seeks comfort by way of a massage post-skiing & upscale accommodations: check into the Park Hyatt.

For a luxurious adult getaway: I would choose the Park Hyatt over the Beaver Creek Lodge: it won Trip Advisor’s “Traveler’s Choice Award” for 2020, & comes with far more enthusiastic reviews & amenities.

Another area where the Park Hyatt excels are its beautiful communal spaces, which the Beaver Creek Lodge lacks.

“This resort provides excellent access to the slopes!  My room faced the slopes which was a great view to wake up to. The valet service for equipment was efficient & really made skiing in & out easy.  I also spent a day at the spa, which was very relaxing. Breakfast at the hotel was delicious & plenty of options to choose from.” – J.M.

5. Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch ($699+) = LUXURY + Great Bars!

As the only hotel located in Bachelor Gulch (far right side of the mountain), the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch stands out both for its singular location & ultra-luxurious feel.  If you love blue & green runs: the Ritz is a great place to stay, as the Bachelor Gulch lift leads exclusively to blue & green runs.  For the more advanced skier, you’ll need to ski further to the left.  Expect all the same amenities as the resorts above & then some, including a world-class spa that is perhaps even more ritzy than the Park Hyatt’s. 

You’re not in the main village here, meaning there are fewer restaurant options: but the Ritz is known for its FUN bars & eateries (like Wyld & the outdoor Daniel’s Fireside Grill).  Even locals head here apres-ski for killer drinks with a view.  The only downside: it’ll cost you!

The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch pretty much DEFINES the ski-in ski-out experience: as its nestled directly at the base of Bachelor Gulch Express Lift (which leads to blue & green runs ONLY). The Ritz is in fact the only hotel at the base of this lift.

Like the Park Hyatt, the Ritz offers a world-class spa for those looking to indulge in total relaxation post-hitting the slopes.

The Ritz boasts the most luxurious accommodations & most beautiful lobby on this list.

“My husband & I spent just had a wonderful staycation at the Ritz & our experience was perfect!  Our room was beautiful, on the upper floor with an amazing ski area view.  The restaurants & bars are beyond fantastic.  We ate in Wyld and Bill’s & the outside bars several times; each experience was amazing. The staff played a big part in making this stay so fun.  We cannot wait to return!” – Johnny P.

As skiing is one of the few activities we can (pretty safely) do right now, I’ll be writing more on Colorado ski resorts in the future ~ because in terms of skiing, it’s hard to beat the Rocky Mountains.  And there’s one more ski-in ski-out hotel I want to add for Beaver Creek: Borders Lodge, located right next to Elkhorn Lift.  Find more information about it below!
