Gift for expert skiers at Beaver Creek

New expert and extreme terrain at Beaver Creek will open Saturday. Stone Creek Chutes offers short, steep, gladed runs in its upper reaches and 180 acres of steeps in-bounds in its lower reaches. Chutes range from 400 to 600 vertical feet with pitches of up to 45 degrees. There are also small to moderate cliff bands.
The terrain is served by the existing Cinch Express Lift, with two marked entrances leading skiers and snowboarders from the Red Buffalo run and Cinch run into Stone Creek Chutes. The terrain adds two new trails for a resort total of 148 trails—38 percent are rated advanced or expert—and 1,805 skiable acres.
