New Westin Riverfront: Beaver Creek & Vail Nearby
The new luxury Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa at the base of Beaver Creek mountain resort in Colorado (how's that for a view, above?) now offers ski travelers a deluxe spot to settle when they are mainly interested in skiing Beaver Creek runs, but also want easy access to those at Vail. The Westin is not way up the mountain. It's actually in Avon, on the Eagle River, with a front door gondola to take skiers from the ski valet to the first BC lift. The location also makes it a lot easier to access the runs at Vail, just 9 miles away. Condos are priced from $395,000 to $2.1 million. The Westin officially opens Oct. 15.
