Sure, luxury is paramount at Beaver Creek, but that doesn’t mean this is a resort for softies. In addition to white glove service, this compact resort holds an exhilarating playground of steeps, trees, and chutes. Better yet, few people actually seek them out. Which means the goods stay good long after a storm. From the Royal Elk Glades to Stone Creek Chutes to the some of the steepest and fastest race terrain in the world, and you could ride here all season and never get bored. —Rachel Walker FRIDAY 4 p.m. 1.
