Mountain Biking Beaver Creek Ski Resort

****   Add a review
#226 of 1,343 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#3,467 in the world

There are tons of trails here but only a few are serviced by the summer lift. If you are in great shape (or too cheap to buy a ticket), skip the lift and ride up the mountain (all 2000 vertical feet). The "Blue" trails are the singletrack options and they can be pretty challenging for most riders. The singletrack was mostly washed out and very rooty and steep in sections. If you choose the "Green" trails, be prepared to take the road all the way to the bottom. Overall, not one of the best lift serviced downhills available. Go to Keystone instead (although the scenery is tough to beat).

    Reviewing Paulie’s Plunge:

    The ride from the top to bottom was lots of fun -> recommended. 4-stars
    The ride from the bottom was a challenge over the rocky middle section. The upper section forced me to push quite a bit -> not so recommended.

    Good mix of trails throughout the resort.
    Some under construction.
    Great views from the top.

    Able to connect to some local trails to extend from the resort into eagle vail and beyond

    Rode up Cinch (about 1800ft of climbing). Rode the upper part of Corkskew down to Allie's Way. Rode up Allie's Way up and back down again (about 400ft of climbing). Then jumped back onto the lower Corkscrew.
    Cinch is a dirt road, with some truck traffic - a snoozer of a climb. I tried climbing Corkscrew for a little more excitment, but the effort level was so high that I figured I was wasting energy I'd rather spend elsewhere.
    Corkscrew is a windy black singletrack thru the woods. It mostly dirt with a fair number of roots. The roots were wet, which proved to be somewhat challenging for someone who rarely rides wet roots on side slopes :). There were a number of steep/tight switchbacks, but not many big/sustained technical challenges. Overall, I enjoyed the ride.
    Allie's Way is a singletrack traverse on dirt across the mountain - in and out of the woods between ski runs. The views were nice, and the ride back down was fun, if not very challenging.* Review edited 7/23/2011

    2,000 ft verticle drop on lift service trails. Only truly one mtb trail open top to bottom. Majority of trail was corkscrew, black diamond trail. Only easier trail was the service road. Another trail was rated blue but only went a third of the way down. The map shows other trails but most are for hikers or horses only. Non lift serviced trails available in Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead. Glad I didn't waste $27 on lift ticket. Another trail that was rated easier was closed due to logging in the area. The Beav has great potential if more trails are added. Great scenery visited when aspens were at peak. Breckenridge and Keystone are better lift trail access resorts.* Review edited 9/20/2010

    Riding the chair lift and biking down is fine if you are on vacation and want to ride the fire roads/cat walks down on a rental. Otherwise, pedal your b*** off and and pick anything down the mountain and you will not be disappointed or unchallenged. Village to Village is good, Corkscrew is wicked. Paulies is epic. Pay attention to where horses are on trail rides. But please feel free and listen to the other rider and choose Keystone!
