Redtail Camp

Hpim21711Many of the best ski resorts have areas where the expert skiers and boarders hang out.  There is usually a base lodge in this area where they serve good food and drinks and there is usually a party atmosphere on warm sunny days.

At Beaver Creek, that area is Red Tail Camp.

There are three lifts that converge on Red Tail Camp; Larkspur Bowl, Grouse Mountain, and Birds of Prey.  I love all three lifts although I can’t wait until they convert the Larkspur chair to a high speed quad this summer.

Larkspur, Grouse Mountain, and Birds of Prey all have great bump runs right under the lift.  I enjoy the ride up watching the action below and I enjoy banging in the bumps under the chair on the way down.

Places like Red Tail Camp are paradise for me on a sunny warm spring day
