How to vacation like a local on your next trip to Beaver Creek
We asked our Lead Concierge, Matt, to create the true local experience for your summer vacation in Beaver Creek. Matt shares his secret spots and can’t miss activities.
A little about Matt: Matt has lived in the Valley for ten years and loves nothing more than being outdoors. Whether biking or hiking, fly fishing or kayaking, Matt is ready to share his favorite go-to summer activities and help you find yours.
We asked Matt what his favorite part of his job was and this is what he had to say, “My favorite part of my job is when guests experience something they never would have thought about trying before and they leave feeling happy and fulfilled with their vacation.”
