Head for the Hills and a Beaver Creek Wine Excursion Today

Get out and enjoy the beauty of Colorado while sipping wine during one of Beaver Creek's wine excursions. The resort is offering two wine retreats today: Guests can either take a 4x4 or hit the hiking trails as they explore the area around Beaver Creek before heading to Beano's Cabin on the top of the mountain. At Beano's, guests will be treated to a wine-and-cheese pairing, topped off with chocolate-covered strawberries and La Marca Prosecco. The 4x4 adventure gets rolling at 2:30 p.m. today; hikers will head out at 1:30 p.m. If you can't make this trip, don't worry: Beaver Creek will be offering the excursions every Thursday until September 3.
