New Talons Restaurant
This summer Beaver Creek is constructing a new European-inspired on mountain restaurant named Talons situated at the confluence of Larkspur Bowl, Grouse Mountain and Birds of Prey; it will replace Red Tail Camp. The name Talons reflects the theme on this part of the mountain, which is home to many birds of prey in the area. Talons will be 17,000 square feet with 500 indoor seats on two levels and 250 outdoor seats, more than doubling the previous capacity. The menu will feature gourmet dining options such as the Talons Kasseler Rippchen Casserole and Colorado Lamb Burger served in an upscale cafeteria setting. The architecture pays homage to the early era of Beaver Creek with a nostalgic barn exterior and post and beam construction. Originally constructed in 1997, the new building is situated lower down the hill, offering easier access for skiers and riders in the area. Talons is expected to open at the start of the 2013-2014 ski season and it also will serve as the press center for the 2013 Birds of Prey World Cup events as well as the 2015 FIS Alpine Ski World Championships.
Beaver Creek makes accessing the slopes even easier this season with the addition of a new escalator located in the heart of the village above the ice rink. An existing series of escalators, built with ski boots in mind, already serves skiers and riders in the main artery of the village. To help guests reach snow faster the new escalator will be located between the ice rink and the snow surface adjacent to the Children’s Ski & Snowboard School and near the Buckaroo Gondola. It will be operating at the start of the 2013-2014 ski season.
