Overview

Fitness classes and ski valet services are included in the daily resort fee
Valet parking is not included in the daily resort fees, which are $55 in the winter.

This massive Ritz-Carlton resort near the Beaver Creek Ski Resort looks as though it's bursting from the mountainside. Guests love the traditional ski chalet feel here, from the exposed wood beams and stone walls of the lobby to the cozy fireplaces found in many of the guest rooms. For skiers, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch features an in-house ski and snowboard outfitter and a ski concierge, and the $55 winter resort fee ($30 in the summer) covers high-speed Internet access, shuttle transportation to Beaver Creek Village and access to the resort's fitness classes and sauna, among other services. If the slopes aren't calling your name, spend a day rejuvenating at the 21,000-square-foot Bachelor Gulch Spa while your children participate in one of the resort's kids programs. Then, regroup for dinner; there are three dining options to choose from. The one downside, according to recent visitors, is that things here can get very pricey very quickly. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can use and earn points by staying here.
