So today we decided to go to the top of Beaver Creek mountain. We took the chair lifts up the mountain in the morning. It was a little stressful for my wife, as she does not like heights.
The ride was very nice and my wife actually enjoyed the ride. It was smooth and fast. They had a number of hiking/biking trails up at the top of the mountain. We did not take our bikes. Many of the trails were a mile and a half or longer. We opted to only walk a little bit of a trail. We were all still adjusting to the altitude. They also had a kids play area/park. Yes! A park! On a mountain! In nature! All together we walked maybe a mile on the trail. But it was a nice view to see the mountains and the town below.
For lunch we are at the Spruce Saddle Lodge. Which was on top of the mountain next to the lifts. They have a number of other restaurants on that property but they were closed for the off season in August. They have a description of the restaurants that are there but no actual web links. Beaver Creek Mountain Restaurants.
After lunch, we went back down the mountain and went back to the condo. Our daughter loves swimming, so we went swimming afterwords for a about an hour.
For dinner we ate the The Dusty Boot Saloon. It was really good. They had a variety of food to choose from. And it was right outside the condo so we didn’t have to walk far.
