The Beav is going to be one of the nicest places to ski in the country this winter. It has been proven over the past two years that Beaver Creek has received as much snow on its trails as Vail gets. Today it is dumping in Edwards, home to Gateway Land, and both Vail and Beaver Creek could be getting the first big accumulation of the winter. Both areas will be open by Thanksgiving, but then the Beav will have the Men's World Cup Races the following weekend on the Birds of Prey Downhill Course.
Just a couple exits down the I-70 from Vail, Avon is well known as the gateway to Beaver Creek.? For locals, it?s a stop on our weekly to do list as the home of the most price sensitive grocery & everything else stores in the Valley. ?While other area of the valley shy away from big chain names, Avon proudly homes well known names like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Outback Steak House, Pier 1, Sports Authority and Radio Shack.? At the center of town,Nottingham Lake lends a beautiful and peaceful side to balance out the town and gives us a perfect place for community festivities including Colorado?s largest display of fireworks on the 4th of July.? Avon also offers a library, recreation center and plenty of pocket parks and playgrounds.?
