    Anything good in Beaver Creek area?

    I may win a trip with my company that would have me at Beaver Creek for about four days in May 2014. I don't usually go on these trips as my family can't come, but this one has me interested. Is there much good riding around the Beaver Creek Resort area? Would it be worth setting up a bike rental for a couple of days and checking out several trails, or are good trails too far away to make a real "mountain biking" vacation of it? I'd like to just ride the whole time I'm there, for a couple of solid days anyway. Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

    May in BC = lots of snow everywhere, still, for most of the trails. You will probably be able to ride some of the stuff in Eagle by then, but you can't make a riding vacation in Beaver Creek work in May. July, yes. June, maybe. May, probably not unless it's an epic bad snow year.

    agreed. There is some nice riding there, but not that early. resort only closes mid-april and you can still skin up and ski down 2 weeks after that.

    once it all drys out, most of the best routes involve riding up the resort service roads and down nice singletrack on and off resort...if you know where to look.
