    Photo Courtesy Beaver Creek ResortKidzView Kids love to roam Beaver Creek's pedestrian-only, Europen-style village and ride covered escalators up to the slopes. The resort's outdoor ice rink is the centerpiece of the village, with an amateur skating show scheduled each Monday night. Each Thursday, kids and parents can participate in a glow-stick ski-down followed by music and fireworks. Other activities include special children's theatre performances, kids' camps featuring rock climbing and arts and crafts, a weekly dinner theatre for kids and more.
    On the mountain, kids love to explore the Black Bear Cave, Gold Mine, Tombstone Territory, and special kids-only trails and terrain parks.

    For Sanity's Sake: Beaver Creek is first and foremost a family resort. From the pedestrian layout of the village to the numerous family programs, the resort strives to make both parents and kids happy.
    On the mountain, kids' terrain is often found alongside tougher terrain, allowing families of all abilities to ski together. The village offers a variety of elegant and casual dining. Should parents need a night out alone, the resort offers evening child care and Kids' Night Out, a special dinner theatre for kids on select evenings.
