The Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch boasts a beautiful setting, with access to the vast ski area of Beaver Creek and nearby Vail. Tucked away on a quiet mountainside between Beaver Creek and Arrowhead, Bachelor Gulch is a village aptly named for its original settlers. Today, it is the hub of Beaver Creek's village-to-village ski experience. A great resort for beginners and intermediates, it is more intimate than its two neighbors and the hotel offers privacy with Rocky Mountain luxury.

Featured in Condé Nast Traveler’s “World’s Best Places to Stay: 2012 Gold List” and run with typical North American high standards of service and friendliness, this is a great hotel from which to enjoy the fantastic Rocky Mountain skiing. The hotel features 180 well-appointed rooms and suites, a fully equipped spa, outdoor heated pool, ski concierge and a ski nanny for children.

The lovely 'mountain lodge'-style lounge with its high ceilings and huge fireplace is an ideal place to relax after a great day on the slopes. Spago, the flagship restaurant of world-famous master chef Wolfgang Puck, sets the standard for cuisine, service and style. Its hip and sophisticated bar and lounge, with cowhide chairs and Amish-style furniture, has an etched silver bar top and clear glass display towers. The Buffalo Bar, with its 'American West' theme, offers an extensive bar menu daily, complemented by live music.

For some rest and recuperation after all that hard work on the slopes, the 21,000 square-foot spa is the place to be, with its huge outdoor pool, 4 hot tubs, jacuzzi, plunge pool, steam rooms and saunas, as well as 19 treatment rooms and a luxurious manicure/pedicure salon.


The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch resort offers 180 guest rooms, including 40 exceptional Colorado suites–which may also be combined to create two-bedroom suites–and The Ritz-Carlton Suite. Rooms and suites have either mountain or resort views and doubles have either one king sized bed or two doubles. All the accommodations is beautifully appointed, and some of the larger rooms and suites have fireplaces and balconies. All rooms and suites have high speed WiFi access.

The popular Ski Nanny program at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch supervises the resort’s youngest ski bunnies, ensuring they arrive on time in Beaver Creek Village for group lessons via Village transportation, simultaneously allowing parents to make first tracks. After a day on the slopes, the Nanny meets children at the Ski School drop-off point in Beaver Creek and escorts them back to the resort for Ritz Kids’ “Munchies and a Movie,” where parents are invited to pick up their children by 6pm. Ski Nanny services are offered to children from 5 to 12 years old.


Escape to the Forbes Four Star-rated spa, where the pure mountain air and natural surroundings inspire renewal.

Location & Directions

Beaver Creek, United States of America

The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is conveniently situated between nearby Beaver Creek and Arrowhead Villages. Complimentary village-to-village transportation offers on-demand shuttle service to and from both locations.

When to go

The ski season in the United States is longer than that in Europe. Most resorts open sometime in November, with Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday in that month) being a common opening time, and stay open until mid to late April. The Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Wyoming have the highest peaks and due to the semi-arid climate, have abundant snowfall with some great powder. The exceptionally high altitude means December through to February can be extremely cold, with temperatures sometimes reaching as low as -12C, although the skiing conditions remain very good. Warmer temperatures in the Spring mean more variable skiing conditions and softer, forgiving snow.
