When your family is not skiing in Beaver Creek, take a dip in the heated indoor pool and hot tubs, or (if you dare!) the outdoor heated pool and hot tubs, which are open year-round. There is a children’s activity room for kids to make arts and crafts, play games and watch TV, too. Ping-Pong tables and a Foosball table are also fun for kids and teens. Families can enjoy offsite fun in Avon and Beaver Creek via a complimentary shuttle from the lodge, which runs year-round.
Onsite dining is available via a sandwich shop and onsite restaurant. Children’s menus are available at both.
Other amenities at the lodge include guest laundry facilities, free covered parking and a fitness room. Check-in is at 5 p.m. and check-out is at 10 a.m. Pets are not allowed.

This is a unique resort, all 3 levels of units built around an open atrium that contains activities, pool, hot tubs, fireplaces, gathering areas & 2 restaurants with a superior staff and a clear domed roof over the atrium. I had not one complaint in any area. However, when they say not suitable for disabled or people that have trouble walking, pay attention. it is an enormous facility & with much walking & several steps/stairs required even after you use the elevator to get to your floor.
Really was a pretty decent place. Had an awesome time skiing beaver creek. I like the older? style of the place. The atrium?- big skylight with a lot of live plants and trees growing. Very cool, floor tiles and stairways- cool architecture. They could have done less "levels" on the bottom floor- coming in and out of the building-going to front desk, makes the initial hauling everything in and out more of a pain. We were parked in back and had to haul all our stuff down metal stairway you had to be pretty careful on and took a bit to get everything in. Was cool they had indoor and outdoor hot tubs. Think there was 3 inside and another one outside. We just used the outside one, was nice. Rooms were decent and clean. The bus was awesome to take us to the mountain- nice not having to drive and find a spot for the car then walk in. So the way to go. My only malfunction other than getting stuff in the building from the car was the no smoking on the decks and having to go to the 1 and only 1 designated spot a decent ways from the building. I get you don't want people to irritate your neighbors on their decks, but I have some sense and there was noone ever on their decks-noone would have noticed if I went out for 2 minutes before bed. If the room would have been in my name, I probably just would have anyway. Guess once used to traveling down to the spot, wasn't too bad and bumped into a pretty cool person, think the manager from the restaurant that just got out of work. So really, I like the design of the building, minus the stairs from the car to the building and getting our stuff in, and the lack of being able to have a cigarette on the deck. Otherwise, would be an easy 5 stars. I'd stay here again
