A man by the name of George Townsend first settled in Beaver Creek Valley in 1881, knowing immediately he had stumbled upon something out of the ordinary. Vail purchased the land in 1972 and began the process of building what is now a world-class resort. The dream became a reality in 1980, which is the date Beaver Creek Ski Resort opened to the public.
