Help! First time staying at Beaver Creek

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Our family (husband, wife, two sons 9yr and 17yr) is planning a ski vacation for the first week in april to Beaver Creek. We are looking at two lodges: Arrowhead and Market Square Lodge. We were wanting suggestions as to whether these lodges would be good for a first time out west family ski vacation. By the way, we all can ski, but just have not been to Beaver Creek before.

We are looking at joining two other couples at the lodge. We have not decided yet whether to logde together or separately. However, we think it would be more enjoyable to have a place where we could all be together.

If you have suggestions on other lodges...we would welcome that too.

i had seen either but have stayed at bc. i would choose market square lodge as it is right in the bc village and you can walk to the village, ice skating rinks and the best restaurants and its almost ski-in+out to the main lift.
in arrowhead, you'll have to call a shuttle to go much anywhere after 6. i'd ski over to arrowhead to see it, but thats about it.

Agree with this. We stayed in Arrowhead to save a few pennies. It was kind of a pain to get up to the village at night.

No question, stay Mkt SQ Lodge.

The lifts at Arrowhead base are closed by April and the snow will be thin and melted out.
