We are excited to announce the upgrade of Drink of Water Lift (#5) from a two-person fixed grip to a new high-speed quad to debut as Red Buffalo Express (#5) during the 2017-2018 winter season. The new Red Buffalo Express will be named after the signature, beginner Red Buffalo trail, which provides incredible views of the Gore Range and is named after two signature peaks of the Gore Range, the Red peak and Buffalo peak. The new lift will reduce ride time by 50 percent, from 8.6 minutes to 4.3 minutes, and will increase uphill capacity by 75 percent. With the upgrade, all primary lifts on Beaver Creek will be high-speed. This plan is subject to U.S. Forest Service approval.
We’ve received over 6 feet of snow so far this month! In between all of the snowfall have been some beautiful sunrises and classic bluebird Colorado days. Here are some of our favorite photos from the month thus far (photos by Jon Resnick):
Second only to the coveted powder day, the combination of soft snow and warm sun on a Spring day makes for an extraordinary experience in the Colorado mountains. There’s also no better time to enjoy some of the fine outdoor deck and patio space that Beaver Creek has to offer.
