Ritz-Carlton Ski Resort Completes Renovations
Ritz-Carlton announced the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation of its Bachelor Gulch ski resort in Beaver Creek, Colorado. The property was the first ski resort hotel opened by Ritz-Carlton, over 11 years ago.
As part of the renovations, the property now features rustic lodge pole pine beams and stone fireplaces, as well as new furnishings and contemporary paintings. The resort’s 180 guestrooms incorporate new color schemes, including natural and alpine elements, as well as pale blues, sage greens, vibrant golds, and soft creams.
The rooms are also outfitted with carpets with cracked ice design concepts, and the walls are covered in an imitation of red rock. Each room also has artwork featuring local foliage and aspen trees.
In addition, the property opened a new restaurant last month called Buffalos. The establishment features bison entrees, such as Buffalo Steak and Eggs for breakfast, and Bison Burger or Bison Chili for lunch. Other offerings such as the Bison Rib-Eye Bison Steak Salad and Bison Tartare are also available. In addition, the restaurant offers handcrafted specialty cocktails, as well as beer pairings with signature dishes.
A new Bachelors Lounge opened on the property as part of the renovations. The lounge features fireplaces, light dining, and an outdoor covered and heated area. Guests can smoke cigars, enjoy live music, and smoke custom-made hookahs in the lounge.
The resort also expanded its ski valet services, in the form of a covered outdoor area near the express lift. Guests can warm their boots prior to skiing in an indoor staging area, and are offered complimentary hot chocolate or cider.
In addition, the property’s spa had its treatment rooms updated. The spa now features new specialty winter treatments and packages.
