This pic was sent to us by the folks at Beaver Creek Monday evening. Winter is definitely on its way. By the way, big news at Beaver Creek, especially for those who love to ski there, but can't afford to stay slopeside. A new gondola between Avon and the base of the mountain is anticipated to open this winter. A three-minute gondola ride will deliver guests to Beaver Creek Landing, where two high-speed quad chairlifts deliver skiers and snowboarders to the main mountain.
It sure beats the alternatives: $20 underground parking or a long wait for the free shuttle from town.
