The spectrum of hues that fills the sky towards sunset is marvelous. The mountains seem golden under this blaze and the chalets seem as if they are coming out of a painting. It is as if the gods of the sky and the earth have conspired to show their ability to create a spectacle that you won’t forget. And it amazes you to see this day after day from the comforts of your Beaver Creek, CO resort home.
A thriving European type village in Colorado, Beaver Creek was settled in round about 1881. Almost a century later, in 1980, this unincorporated community of Eagle County opened up the Beaver Creek Resort, a major ski resort that hosts the Alpine Skiing World Cup. Affectionately called Vail’s little sister, the charm and pull of this quaint village is living in luxurious privacy. Perhaps this is why the late U.S. President Gerald Ford and his wife, Betty Ford, owned Beaver Creek Real Estate.
