Guided hikes will end at the concert venue. To book, choose the ticket option you prefer and at the bottom of the Eventbrite page, select to add on the “Guided Mountain and Art Hike”.
If you are new to hiking, consider taking the Centennial Gondola for your best possible concert experience.
We recommend climbing up the intermediate Cinch Trail. Please allow yourself three hours to complete. There may be a few hikers on the way up, but expect more hiker traffic on the ride down due to this being the recommended way for hikers to exit the concert venue. Advanced riders can make the climb a challenge by going up Corkscrew, which is typically a downhill trail. Note that there are no bike hauls or downloads on the day of the concert, September 16.
Enjoy a scenic 4×4 tours as you make your way up the mountain – price is $65 per person. A guide will reveal interesting details about the area history and ecology, all while making exploring Beaver Creek’s mountainous terrain easy and exciting for all ages. To book, choose the concert ticket option you prefer and at the bottom of the Eventbrite ticketing page, select to add on the “4×4 Adventure Tour”.
Your concert ticket comes with access to Centennial Gondola, the easiest and fastest route to the venue. Please note that no bike hauls will be allowed on the day of the concert, September 16.
When the concert wraps up at 5pm, join the Beaver Creek Hiking Center for a complimentary hike down Cinch to the afterparty in Beaver Creek Village. You may also download the gondola, but just be prepared for a bit of a wait – you can always pass the time with refreshments and lawn games at Spruce Saddle.
