Beaver Creek to open brand new McCoy Park terrain on Jan. 10

Beaver Creek Resort will unveil the brand new 250-acre McCoy Park expansion at 9:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 10. Featuring 17 new trails serviced by two quad lifts, McCoy Park offers beginner and intermediate groomed and gladed terrain in a bowl environment for skiers and snowboarders.

The new terrain park was first approved in 2019, and Beaver Creek broke ground in July 2021.

The project was not an expansion of the ski area boundary; it was already being used by the resort as a Nordic ski center.

Even with the addition of the new downhill trails — three intermediate and 14 beginner trails — the Nordic skiing component won’t disappear; it will just see a reduction in size.

Beaver Creek has been aided by snow storms in recent weeks to open new lifts and trails, including the new trails and lifts at McCoy Park. As of Thursday, Jan. 6 the resort is reporting that 64% of its terrain is now open, with 109 trails.
