Beaver Creek-need information for Green runs and parking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This will be our third time to Breckenridge, this year we want to ski one day at BC. We have looked at the trail map and have done our homework, just want to confirm with the Pro to make sure that we are on the right track or if there is better alternative, your advices are greatly appreciated.

Our sky ability is as beginner, so Centenial Express lift is where we should be right?

A-Get to Centenial Express lift - (1) is there a shuttle from Elk parking straight to the base of the village and walk to CE lift? or (2) Walk from parking to Riverfront Express Gondoda, take lower BCM express, then upper BCM express, ski down BC mountain express way to the village.

B-Return to parking from CEF- (1) take shuttle from village to parking or (2) take Strawberry, ski down Primerose to Sawbuck and follow the Leav the Beav road back Riverfront gondola.

C-at Riverfrond gondola - is it easier to take shuttle to/from parking or ride the gondola to/from and walk to parking? We have no problem with walking but with ski boots on, just want to know how far is the walk.

D-Parking - Elk, Wilk & Bear, are they free? which parking should we choose? We don't mind to park at the village and pay the fee if it is close enough and avoid hassle. At Breck 9, there is a close-in pay parking, we just park there, ski to the lift and ski right back to the parking. Is BC has something similar to that and how much?

Right direction - we drove to BC one time on our previous trip just to check out the area. We took the right exit but ended up drove circle and seeked for help few times before we arrived at the village (not sure which one), did not find parking so we did not get out the car. Can you provide direction to our destination?

I apologize for having to many questions. With your advices we had always enjoyed our 4 trips to the Summit county.

Thanks,

MTV

For the green runs, take the Centennial lift and then the Cinch lift.

Park in the free Bear lot (actually two lots close together). The Elk lot is for employees. Shuttle to the village is free. To get to it exit at Avon and go south through it to US 6 and then west (right at the traffic circle) about a mile. I don't know about parking at the Village. The shuttle stops at the top of the Riverfront gondola (Beaver Creek Landing) on its way to the Village or on the return trip back to the Bear lot. Getting there via option B as you describe is possible but a long trip. The Strawberry lift is several hundred feet from the Centennial lift via a moving carpet.

As is Breck and any large area, BC is a bit complex.

Note that there is a shuttle that leaves from Breck to Vail Tuesday and Thursday at 8 AM and returns at 3:30 PM. Call 970 496 4386 for reservations.
