The Renovated Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch Adds a Contemporary Feel to the Classic Lodge

The Renovated Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch Adds a Contemporary Feel to the Classic Lodge

The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch has majestically held its place on the mountain in Beaver Creek for several years. Rustic, elegant design makes this larger-than-life lodge feel at home on the Colorado mountainside, but recent renovations have taken this AAA four-diamond property to the next level. Chic interior design updates, new lounge spaces and innovative fine dining abound at the new property.

Immediately upon entering the resort, return guests will notice the changes that were made to this classic property. Lush blue furniture and open spaces now occupy the main lounge area right off the slopes—a far more contemporary twist to the mountain property—the Ritz-blue furniture and accents lighten the space.

Off the newly re-decorated main living room is Buffalos restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The expanded space which used to house a bar and ski-in, ski-out deli, is now ultra-chic with a backlit bar and comfortable seating to take in the mountain view or devour a scrumptious snack. Specializing in local, farm-sourced ingredients, everything from the food to local craft beers at the Bison Tartar restaurant are perfectly enjoyed in this new space. Also, rich interiors and pops of color are a stunning addition Spago's dining room.

The Club Level has also received a facelift, bright rooms and interiors spaces lighten the entire floor. A move away from the dark woods and rustic interiors, the lighter spaces feel airy and complement the mountainside views of the pool and lift below. From the Club Level Lounge, guests can see the surrounding valley while enjoying one of many food services during the day or relaxing with a glass of wine after a long day of skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, or mountain biking.

One of the most exciting additions to The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is the Bachelor’s Lounge. Previously the kid’s club, the venue offers both inside and outside spaces where live music and a cigar bar meld with creative cocktails to create a unique adults-only atmosphere. Of the cocktail offerings, The Vaportini—which comes in several flavors and styles—essentially vaporizes the alcohol that is consumed through a glass straw. A bit of a buzz without any of the calories, the fanciful take on classic beverages is an entertaining end to an evening. Guests can also enjoy an imported cigar on the outdoor heated patio or sip on a glass of wine chosen by the sommelier in the crisp mountain air.

From the fireside s’mores to a sprawling spa complete with underground grotto, outdoor pool and Jacuzzis to its own ski lift, The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch is decidedly the King of the Mountain. World-renowned service coupled with this renewed mountain property make for an excellent escape in Colorado.

New High Speed Quad Chairlift for Beaver Creek

New High Speed Quad Chairlift for Beaver Creek
The much-anticipated Rose Bowl high speed Doppelmayr quad chairlift opened in December and has forever changed the ski experience at
Beaver Creek. Transporting 2,400 people per hour, the new side-load chair&rsquos ride time is now just over five minutes. For skiers and snowboarders, this means more slope time as guests can better spread out across the entire mountain, reducing the density impacts on the Cinch Express (Chair 8) and Centennial Express Lifts (Chair 6). Increased grooming operations in Rose Bowl, including some of the bowl&rsquos black diamond runs, are providing skiers and riders with a wider variety of terrain options accessed from the new lift and further capitalizing on the g entle, as well as extreme terrain in the area. Investments such as this demonstrate Beaver Creek&rsquos ongoing commitment to continually deliver upon top-notch guest experiences on and off the slopes. *Rose Bowl Lift video

In between, convenience is key. With kids&rsquo ski school registration and meeting areas just steps from the snow, comfortable couches to lounge on and the Park Hyatt&rsquos s&rsquomores and fire pit for afternoon snacking, signing up for lessons is a luxury. The Village views are amazing and the area bustles with activity. Escalators handle the heavy lifting at Beaver Creek and carry guests to and from a variety of Village levels off the &ldquobeachfront&rdquo including: adult ski school, rentals, lift tickets, restaurants, shops, galleries and a year-round outdoor ice rink.

The event expects to draw an estimated 1 billion television viewers from around the world. This will be the third FIS World Championships for Beaver Creek and Vail, which previously hosted the 1989 and 1999 Championships.

Intimate Village
Beaver Creek&rsquos &ldquobeachfront&rdquo boasts an array of amenities that meet the slopes. At the base of the mountain&rsquos main Centennial Express Chairlift, skiers and riders are met with dining options such as Foxnut Slopeside Sushi or the Beaver Creek Chophouse to the west and restaurant 8100 at the Park Hyatt hotel to the east. In between, convenience is key. With kids&rsquo ski school registration and meeting areas just steps from the snow, comfortable couches to lounge on and the Park Hyatt&rsquos s&rsquomores and fire pit for afternoon snacking, signing up for lessons is a luxury. The Village views are amazing and the area bustles with activity. Escalators handle the heavy lifting at Beaver Creek and carry guests to and from a variety of Village levels off the &ldquobeachfront&rdquo including: adult ski school, rentals, lift tickets, restaurants, shops, galleries and a year-round outdoor ice rink. At the end of the day, be sure to sip an après-ski beverage from one of the many great outdoor decks with heat lamps. No matter where the ski day ends, the cozy pedestrian Village is easy to navigate, and kids are free to roam about and explore the magical children&rsquos fountain, ice skating rink, statues and more, while parents can relax knowing they are safe.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center is an intimate, state-of-the-art facility located in the heart of the Beaver Creek Village, directly beneath the outdoor ice skating rink. VPAC hosts a variety of acclaimed artistic performances throughout the season. Its inviting performance space was designed to exact specifications to create perfect acoustics and unobstructed views from each of its 530 seats. Littman's Kunstler theatre in Munich provided inspiration for the wood-paneled columns, walls and ceilings that are combined with the curved horseshoe seating layout also found in many traditional European halls. The natural wood and stone in the lobby are highlighted by carpets and fabrics woven with autumnal colors. The walls are painted in the muted tones of the sky at dusk which completes the theater's harmonious complement to the Rocky Mountain environment that surrounds it.

Littman's Kunstler theatre in Munich provided inspiration for the wood-paneled columns, walls and ceilings that are combined with the curved horseshoe seating layout also found in many traditional European halls. The natural wood and stone in the lobby are highlighted by carpets and fabrics woven with autumnal colors. The walls are painted in the muted tones of the sky at dusk which completes the theater's harmonious complement to the Rocky Mountain environment that surrounds it.
