BEAVER CREEK, Colo. – March 01, 2018 – With recent snowfall bringing prime ski conditions to the Rocky Mountains and blue bird skies creating the ultimate photo-worthy backdrop, there is no better time to plan a spring escape to The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. Spring breakers can take advantage of ski-in, ski-out access to endless acres of impeccable terrain blanketed with fresh “hero snow” – snow that is soft on top and firm underneath – allowing skiers of all levels to feel like heroes on the slopes. Making these optimal conditions even more memorable, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch invites jetsetters and locals alike to discover a unique Colorado approach to spring break with elevated offerings including Après After Dark with live DJ entertainment, nature-inspired adventures, and much more.
Après Every Which Way No spring ski trip would be complete without a proper après-ski experience. At The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch, the time-honored tradition takes many forms. For nightlife in the mountains, adults can rendezvous at Bachelors Lounge – the hidden, adults-only venue open in the evenings – for its new Après After Dark experience. After a day out on the “hero snow,” refuel with delectable bites, seasonal libations, and live DJ entertainment on select weekends (March 16-17; 23-24; and 30-31). Guests can also take breaking bread to new heights at Social Dining experiences in the historic Anderson’s Cabin (available Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays). Individual seats may be reserved for a family-style après dining experience designed to encourage interactions among fellow spring breakers.
Those seeking mountainside revelry are invited to après on the lively Mountainside Terrace, located steps away from the Bachelor Gulch Express chairlift. From authentic Colorado barbeque at Daniel’s Bar & Grill to the new Champagne and Bloody Mary bar (available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), it’s the perfect place to see and be seen. Families wishing to cozy up indoors can retreat to the Great Room, where nightly live music by the fireplace pairs perfectly with gourmet hot chocolate or a selection of custom cocktails. After an epic day on the slopes, soothe tired muscles at The Ritz-Carlton Spa’s signature rock-lined grotto. Available to guests at no additional cost, this co-ed space is a must-visit to regroup and relax.
