Ritz-Carlton offers an avalanche of savings

Savings on offer at the picturesque Ritz-Carlton.

Smart skiers know that early season is a great time to visit the slopes of Beaver Creek Mountain, Colorado, with fresh snow, short lift lines and great early season lodging offers.

This winter, families who book an early season visit to The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch will find an avalanche of savings over regularly published rates when they take advantage of the resort’s special “First Tracks” package.

The special family offer includes two rooms for three nights, breakfast for four each morning, two half-day Ritz Kids programs, one 50-minute spa treatment for either mom or dad at The Bachelor Gulch spa and a welcome amenity. The package is $1,795 - a 35 per cent savings over regular season rates - and is based on four people (two adults, two children) in two standard guest rooms. The offer is valid through December 21, 2003.

Imagine sitting in the comfort of a luxury guest room, enjoying a newspaper and fresh cup of coffee. There’s a knock at the door - it’s The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch Ski Nanny. The Ski Nanny provides a convenient service for mom and dad, so that they can enjoy their morning and hit the slopes for a day of skiing at their leisure. The Ski Nanny picks up children ages 5-12 years old from their guest room and escorts them through the ski rental and ski school sign up process in the morning. The Nanny also will make sure that the resort’s young guests get on the ski school bus that takes them to Beaver Creek Village for group lessons. After a day on the slopes, the Ski Nanny will meet children at the Ski School drop off point and escort them into Ritz Kids for après ski theater where parents can pick up their children by 5 p.m., allowing mom and dad to après ski as well. Price for Ski Nanny service is $40 for the first child per day and $20 per day for additional children.
