The Best Kept Resort 'Secret' in U.S. Skiing  

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I'm Chalky White.  Luckily for me, I'm a high profile ski instructor.  For any skier, but especially advanced & expert skiers, maybe the biggest secret in the U.S. is my home resort, BEAVER CREEK.  As a Beaver Creek ski instructor, it still amazes me when I look up or down any of the black and double diamond runs at the Beav.  What do I see? Often nobody - not a skier in sight. Amazing, fantastic terrain with so few skiers - absurd, but great at the same time.  And, ssshhh, don't tell anyone, but weekends are even better.  When Vail, Breck, Keystone, Copper are crawling with skiers, there's still very few skiers on Beaver Creek's famous Birds of Prey trails, like the ultra long bump runs, Peregrine, Goshawk and all the tough terrain on Grouse Mountain.  

 

But, then there's the 'jewel in the crown' - Golden Eagle, the very highly rated World Cup run that many of you will know as, 'The Birds of Prey' downhill.  On powder days, they often leave it for the powder hounds to track out - then, they groom it for advanced skiers to hammer down making carved GS turns; arguably, it's the Beaver Creek ski instructor s' favourite run.  Plus, because Beaver Creek is still such a 'secret', you can still make fresh tracks days after snow falls.  As one who's been a Beaver Creek ski instructor for so many years, perhaps you can realize why I wouldn't want to leave to work in a place that's skied so much more.  And, there's always adventure in the Beav; in bounds, you have places like the long Royal Elk and other steep glades.  Nearly forgot, the old Rose Bowl slow chair 4 is now a high speed quad; we waited for that for years.  Why? It gives faster access to a couple of, my all time favorite, black/double black diamond runs, Spider, Spider's Web & Rip-Saw.  What a great place to teach advanced & expert skiing.  Such great, uncrowded ski terrain so assists me to help accelerate my clients' progress to the next level.

 

I am lucky to be a Beaver Creek ski instructor;  I am one of many high level, even world class, ski instructors to be found there.  Yes, this thread was aimed at higher level skiers, but, if you're not at that level yet, worry not; there will be a Beaver Creek ski instructor for you, including me, that can take you from beginner on upward.  We Beaver Creek ski instructors look forward to seeing you very soon. Never forget, "An advanced/expert skier is a beginner that continues to master the basics."  Cheers.

"On powder days, they often leave it for the powder hounds to track out - then, they groom it for advanced skiers to hammer down making carved GS turns; arguably, it's the Beaver Creek ski instructor s' favourite run."

 

Sounds sick, dude! Should I ask for Chalky or are you all booked up for the season?

Sell your book and your resort somewhere else.

Why would I do that, I'm recommending a great ski resort, not selling it.  There are many others I love too. I wonder, what of a positive nature do you put on here? This is a forum where we should all be trying help each other; I for one am trying to do just that.  Oh, and I didn't actually mention my book; perhaps I should have done.

The first spam is on us, now add something to this community. I hope to see more of your thoughts on things that can happen on snow.

Hey Chalky you should copy and paste that over on the TGR ski/snowboard forum they would really like to read that.

Pretty much what I was thinking.  I enjoyed the few days I skied there, but Mammoth smokes the Beav.

Yes, yes you were. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing to do, but in the second sentence above, you point out what many others have just done. You showed up, spammed the board and didn't really contribute anything useful yet. We'd love to see you contribute something of a positive nature.

 

If you think people here were mean to you, you should try posting the same spam over on TGR's forums. They'll be much less polite.

 

Now take yourself over to some of the ski instructor / MA / advice threads and make a contribution. It would appear you've written a book on the subject. Maybe sharing some of your insight and advice will help sell some copies.
