On Friday, December 22 at 9:15 a.m., Beaver Creek Resort will debut Red Buffalo Park, a family learning area located at the mountain’s highest elevation, 11,440 feet. At the heart of Red Buffalo Park, the new Red Buffalo Express Lift (#5), a high-speed quad, will debut to provide an increase in uphill capacity and a shorter, 4.3 minute ride to the top of the mountain. A Grand Opening celebration will commence at the base of Red Buffalo Express Lift (#5) on Friday at 9:15 a.m. with an official ribbon cutting, commemorative pins and Beaver Creek’s famed chocolate chip cookies. Beginning Friday, skiers and snowboarders will have access to 338 acres of terrain, including an additional 43 acres of terrain on Red Buffalo, Lower Booth Gardens, Lower Powell, and Grand Traverse trails in Red Buffalo Park.
