Beaver Creek - Bridge question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey Beaver Creek skiers,

 

I am meeting someone at Beaver Creek on Saturday and have yet to ski this mountain in my four years here. I am supposed to meet them at "the bridge where the bus drops you off". Since I am driving, I have no clue where this bridge is located.

 

Can anyone give me some landmarks as to where this bridge is located?  (ski lift, hotel, parking lot, etc) I will try to find it on the map.

 

Thanks!

If you park in the free lot, the bus is what takes you to the hill, thus you will be on it.  If you want to park in town, it will cost $33. It's pretty easy to find the bridge and the bus drop-off, even if you are parking in the garage, but first let us know if you plan on parking in the lot or the garage.

I will either be in the free lot or in handicap parking (if the wife decides to go). If handicap parking, it will be whatever is closest to the mountain/lifts.

Hmmm, I don't know about handicap parking. But the bridge is noticeable, it's a big covered bridge by the bus stop. There is really only one main road to get there, it will be fairly obvious. If you park in the Village Hall garage, you will pass it, but I think  the Villa Montane garage entry comes before the bridge and bus circle, so it won't be as obvious. 

 

Someone else should chime in here, as I am no BC expert ... I was there on Tuesday, though, and we parked in the Village garage (there were 3 of us to split the cost, so it seemed like not such a big deal). I was there back during xmas, as well, but just for dinner.

 

WARNING: Vail garages stop charging at 3 pm or so, BC garages DO NOT. I assumed BC garages stopped charging at 3. That was not smart. I went early for a boot fitting appt, and my husband came to meet me later for dinner with friends. So, two cars. More than 2 hr. I think we paid more than $50 in parking that night. I can't remember what the hourly rate is (it caps out at $33/day).

Is the bridge near a lift? My friend is not getting there until 10:30 and I would like to get in a few runs beforehand. Although I do not want to walk very far (AKA Keystone) to get back to the bus stop.

Well, it's not too bad. This is Beaver Creek, so you ride escalators. Not that much walking to get to lift.

I know of 2 bridges right next to the village.

 

on is the covered bridge that some buses stop at (buses from the parking lot? IDK never took that bus). 

 

Its a small covered bridge over a creek, a short walk past it you'll have escalators going up on your right. the first stop will be the ticket windows.ride one more escalator up and your up by the centennial lift (main lift)

 

 

There is a 2nd bridge thats just past the covered bridge, this one crosses the road. (if you look at the trail map its the unmarked 'lift' that connects 6 - 12 (just a moving sidewalk).  Alot of the hotel and resort buses stop here. Theres a stairway (10steps or so) up that lead you right by lift 6)

heres the resort map

 

the covered bridge is by the bus stop. the other buses/shuttles stop just past the 'ski way' bridge.

 

If you park all the way up by the ski way bridge (the parking lot is just before the bridge) the walk out of the lot takes you to the lift ticket sales. And just one escalator ride up to centennial
