We spent the week-end with Tom and Christine. It was great to take a shower in a shower bigger than 30 x 30. We had a wonderful week-end catching up with good conversation, good food, and just relaxing. Thanks, Tom and Christine
Today's post won't be posted today. Today was a traveling day. We left Colorado Springs about 9:30 this morning after stopping to get the oil changed in the coach. It was a short but tedious day traveling. The trip was about a 140 miles from the USAF Academy to Dillion/Frisco CO. We skirted Denver and entered onto I70 west of the city. When we left this morning we were at an elevation of about 6000 feet. When recrossed ...
... down by the river and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and one fisherman fishing. We didn't have fishing poles so we just chilled. It was a nice relaxing end of the day.
Tomorrow we are going to be in Golden, Colorado and meeting Nola and Stuart at Dakota Ridge RV Park.
... I biked back down the valley to Minturn, grabbed a handful of pistachios and cruised towards Hanging Lake.
You must go. The parking lot was full, but I managed to find a spot at a Rest Area 5 miles west and biked to the trailhead. "Smack-dab" in the middle of Glenwood Canyon, this herbaceous turquoise lake sits in a fern-rimmed cup below Spouting Rock. Brook trout and ...
... over to take the tire off where it was parked, roll the tire over to the store, patch it, roll it back to the hotel and put it on. Plan B worked pretty well and my car was soon ready to go.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch Beaver Creek
Be selective on your room
The hotel is great. Rooms are spacious and well kept and service was great. People very friendly. They also accepted my dog and treated him and other dogs like kings. Couple hints...1. The mountain view rooms are overrated and noisy...pool, hot tub, firepit. Valley view actually nice, be sure to ask for a room AWAY from the entry courtyard...doors slamming all night, not my way of enjoying a nice trip.
2. Skip the restaurant at the hotel, overpriced and not that great.
I took my family to the Ritz shortly after they opened in 2002. It was PERFECT! The staff, the facilities, the food, the pools, the spa, the room, the ski valet, the location, the snow, absolutely everything was PERFECT. After being disappointed at 2 other resorts we ALL wanted to go back to Batchelor Gulch so I looked for deals on their website and found their "early winter ski package". Central reservations said it was sold out:( but knowing how the staff is trained to accommodate every request, I called the resort directly. I got the deal I wanted, on the dates I wanted. $255 per night and that included 2 lift tickets! If you want a deal, they'll give you one. If money is not a concern, they'll give you even more. And if Santa really lives at the North Pole then his house must look like this Ritz Carlton. See you there from 11DEC to 18DEC. I'll strictly review our 2nd trip when I return.
My husband and I planned a long weekend of spa and relaxation at the Ritz.
Over the past few years i have stayed in a number of ski hotels( i.e. the ST REGIS APSEN) and can say without a doubt this hotel was the best of them all. THis brand new hotel is designed remarkably giving a vistor a true taste of rocky mountains. It offers a very causal yet by all means luxerious entrance in its humble check in/ lobby area. The quality of the SPA and HEalth Club are unheard of for a mountain hotel. THe rooms are a bit small but nice. The location is great for skiiers ( ski in ski out). The club level is worth the 150 extra per day. All in all a fantastic hotel.
My wife and I just had a wonderful 6 nights at the property. From the moment we arrived until we departed for home the service was the highest quality.
The room was spacious and very nicly appointed. Remmington's restaurant was excellent with a nice variety of entrees.
The public areas were some of the best we have seen at any of the hotels we have stayed. We highly recommend this property. You will not be disappointed.
My husband and I Just returned last night from our trip to Vail, CO. We stayed two nights at the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is beautiful and the service is top notch. When we drove up, the valet took our car and wished us a happy anniversary. Nice touch!
Great hotel, lousy food and ok service
Stayed here in April....great ambiance and decor.....lousy food...and nondescript service....
Better pull your socks up, Ritz....the Ritz in Buckhead, ATL and Tyson's Corner can show you a thing or two on how to treat guests right!
This is the most beautiful resort, what a place and the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. Very relaxing. What a place to kick up your heels and have have a wonderful getaway.. This is an amazing place.
Can't wait to return. Strongly recommend a romantic hidaway....
The Ritz Carlton Bachelors Gulch in Avon, Colo is a great get-a-way for those who just want to "chill!" Rustic, yet resplendent, this property is one of the best resorts around. For those that want to work on their fly fishing, golf, or spa game this is the place. As a June guest one can only imagine how beautiful this Ritz is during the winter and ski season. Service is great from the time you arrive. The dining is also excellent-not one disappointment. I am already planning a return trip. Commercial air access puts guest only thirty minutes away.Highly recommended !
What a Place To Visit
Truly a remarkable stay at this newborn for The Ritz-Carlton Family. This hotel has it all. If you want a romantic getaway for two or a fun filled family this is the rocky mountain getaway. By the way, the skiing was great!
