About Owner

Chalet USA owners Helen Gienke & Rob Brown stumbled upon Colorado, USA in 2001, whilst on career break from their UK Marketing jobs, skied there all winter & never looked back. We wanted to share this fantastic USA ski holiday experience with other UK skiers, so we set up Chalets USA in 2004. We live in Colorado, know the ski resorts and the accommodation and can give you advice of finding the right skiing holiday for you. www.chalets-usa.co.uk

Highlighting Beaver Creek

The resort of the rich and famous, Beaver Creek, has a special place in our hearts... 

With beautifully groomed slopes, quiet skiing and 325 inches of snow each year, this Colorado resort is heaven on earth for any level skier!

It's not just the slopes at Beaver Creek that stand out, but the accommodation and luxury amenities.

The White Carpet Club is one of these amenities, a private, exclusive retreat in the village where you can keep your street shoes in lockers while the ski valet is there to help with your gear. With boot dryers and complimentary cookies, this is the perfect addition to your luxury ski holiday, with daily, weekly and more extended memberships available.

At Beaver Creek you don't have to worry about slow lifts as the upgraded Drink of Water chairlift #5 is now a high speed 4 passenger lift, re-named the Red Buffalo Express (one of the 11 high speed quad lifts). To make skiing even easier, there are escalators to take you up the slopes, no more stomping around the village in your boots!

Accommodation is also a massive part of what makes Beaver Creek so special. With luxury ski in, ski out properties such as Snow Cloud Lodge and Bear Paw Lodge - both with access to the the Ritz Hotel amenities, complimentary shuttle services and hot tubs on site  - its easy to remain luxurious all season long. Want something a little less extravagant? There's plenty of options for a quieter holiday too. The Charter at Beaver Creek and The Borders Lodge provide great value true ski in, ski out self catered apartments with hot tubs and many other amenities.

Après ski is always a big part of your ski holidays, as much as the slope action is important you need to relax and have fun off the slopes as well! Beaver Creek has many dining options on and off the slopes, live DJs, performances and concerts, taverns and bars, and a range of boutiques and shops to browse. Some of our favourites include Toscanini, an Italian restaurant, Rimini with their gorgeous crepes, gelato and coffee, and Beano's cabin on the mountain restaurant. See our Food of the Mountain collection for some delicious pictures.

Not only this, but the Breathtaking Alpine Coaster which premiered this season with also be open for exhilarating rides. 

Another exciting event which takes away those January blues is the annual X-Games Aspen. This festival brings the best winter sportsmen and women together to exhibit their amazing skills. All competitions are free for the public to view so make sure you make your way to Aspen for the 25th to 28th of January!
