What a week it’s been! With large snow accumulations intermixed with beautiful blue skies, we’re wrapping up the last few weeks of the season with the signature spring powder Beaver Creek is known for.
On March 15 and 16, we received a total of 18″ of snow. With the forecast calling for even more snow through tomorrow and a sun-filled weekend, THIS is what spring in the Rockies is all about. So get in your last turns before we close April 10!
