To get your skimo fix at Beaver Creek, you can go uphill before or after hours by using one of the designated routes. Mapped here is the route from Beaver Creek’s main base area, going up Goldust to the top of Centennial Express lift. This is green to blue terrain, with some steeper pitches on Upper Goldust that will test your skinning technique when it’s icy. If you continue along the green Cinch trail toward the top of the lift, you’ll get more than 2000 feet of vertical in one lap, making this a worthy morning or evening workout at Beaver Creek. Be sure to read the resort’s uphill policy before you go, and call the trails hotline (970) 754-5907 for daily updated information.
