... and are glad we didn’t), we returned to Independence Pass.
As we ascended the east side of the Rockies, Kathy noticed that the rain drops were getting bigger and seemed to contain ice. Soon we saw it was starting to snow. By the time we reached the summit of the pass the road was covered and everything was turning white. About a hundred yards down the west side we saw a red Toyota that seemed to be stopped in the road. As ...
... morning we all gathered downtown and shopped Main Street, then set off for Aspen. The scenery was wonderful, especially the delightful Glenwood Canyon highway with its jagged and fissured cliffs and suspended ribbons of roadway. We even passed a long train of coal cars during our transit of the canyon. We tried to stop at Vail for a walk but couldn’t find parking for our trailer. As we departed on I-70 we did see a couple RVs parked away from ...
We awoke to a lot of fog on the Grand Mesa. Drove out the Lands End Rd but the view was about 10 ft this day. Back to 65, down to 70, and heading East toward Denver. Started hearing a humming sound (not good) so we pulled over ...
It was a pleasant ride climbing the mountains leaving Estes Park behind. It had not long broken the dawn and a beautiful Elk was standing on the verge road-side, he looked at us as if to say we disturb his peace. The ride through Nederland and then onto Central City was beautiful, endless mountains. Then at Black Hawk /Central City we were shocked to see the casino mayhem, tall fancy buildings calling for your attention. The road ...
Just down the road from Frisco is a Colorado Scenic Byway that covers about 100 miles. It goes from I70 south to Leadville and then north back to I70 by a different route. We then short across I70 to Vail and then back on home.
Leadville was once the second largest city in Colorado, second only to Denver, with a population of nearly 20,000. Of course that was back during the silver mining days of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center Breckenridge
We stayed and The Beaver Run Resort last month with our two small children. At first, it seemed very nice. The room decor was lovely; I think that it had just been re-done. But the resort is very complicated and confusing. It took us 3 different elevators and a walkway to figure out how to get out to street level, no small task with a 2 year old and infant in a stroller. Needless to say, we didn't attempt the pool or even get a bucket of ice for our drinks because they were both located in different buildings. Then, since it was July it was warm and there was no air-conditoning so we ran a fan all night and had the window open but we were sill overheated. A large truck backing up outside our window at 6am woke up our 2 year old, and as a result the rest of us. We were pretty tired and cranky the rest of the day. Not a place that we would return to.
I checked in for a six night stay beginning in June 2004 - but after one night decided to leave immediately. I stayed in building one in a one bedroom condo. The place is a maze! No in-room safe, no high-speed Internet connection.
Our travel dates were December 11-15, 2003. Room #4625 building #4.
Great Stay Unbeatable location
First: Location! The chairlift would need to be in your room to be closer; tickets, ski shop and good resturaunt directly adjacent. Kids ski school almost in lobby. Vail/Beaver Creek easy 45 min. Copper & Keystone 30. Denver Airport 1 1/2 hrs, except Sunday. Very nice room layout. Staff very helpful. Free shuttle downtown. We have stayed in many ski resorts, this one isn't the Ritz, but a real value, and unusually convenient, especially for families.
Visited Jan 25- 29th 2003. Weekend Rm chg was $156.00 tax included; $117.28 weekdays. the facility was worth that amount. Would go back again, but even by calling the hotel direct and getting a "preferred return guest" discount the room would total $700.28 incld tax for 4 nights compared to $507.84 for the same week in 2004. Hard to justify a 38% increase so checking out other hotels. Our room was over the parking garage; a basic 2 queen bed room, no suite. THE GOOD: Convenient to excellent slopes & lifts, rental shop, lockers. Good food. Two excellent bars (restaurant & sports bar) with friendly bartenders and conversation. The in-house bars are my main consideration to return. Room was average. Free parking. Good shuttle service with van on-site; tip the driver & go anywhere around town.
Delighted Overall - Would stay here again!
We stayed at the resort weekend of August 2, 2003 and were very pleased. We stayed in the Colorado Suite at a very reasonable rate. The suite was clean, spacious and equipped with a jetted tub, fireplace, and mini kitchenette. Parking was free which is a bonus since some properties offered competitive rates, but charged extra for parking. We enjoyed the heated pool and were just delighted with the property, location, price, and amenties overall. The Brunch on the property restaurant on Sunday was recommended by a frequent visitor. We tried it and would recommend it also. We would definately stay at this property again.
Tired threadbare, needs reno
This hotel is tired, threadbare and very much in need of renovation. We were there in the summer for a conference, and had the misfortune to land one of those rooms with a door to the adjoining room. We could hear every word spoken by our loud and inconsiderate neighbors who woke us when they returned to their room after midnight. The next morning, I called the front desk to complain and was assured the room was now vacant. Well, it wasn't: the next morning we were awakened at 5 a.m.
Rotten hotel, don't go there.
We rented a one bedroom condo through Ski Village property management.
Hot Tub & Fire place
I don't know what the negative reviews are all about becasue I went in January 2003 and I am going back in January 2004. The Colorado Suite was excellent with a realxing and romantic hot tub and very warm fireplace. The resort was very inviting, easily accesible to everything around. Ski in, Ski out.....literally!!! It was a very nice experience and this time we are going in a group. The food at the resort was also great. I highly recomend it. It was my first time skiing!
On our arrival at Beaver Run Resort for the 4th of July weekend, for a little league baseball tournament the desk clerk, Mark was the rudest SOB I have ever encountered at a major hotel! The second desk clerk from Bulgeria was just a rude and unintelligible to english speaking customers. We had rented two, 4 bedroom suites with different families in each suite and had given the hotel advanced copies of the name of each family in each suite and had confirmation numbers for each. Mark insisted on another list, refused to give parking passes, refused to allow phone service, and it took a major hassle just to get room keys!
