The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch is a fantastic ski-in, ski-out luxury hotel in Avon, Co., that is part of the Beaver Creek ski complex. The hotel is located at the base of the Bachelor Gulch express lift between Arrowhead Village and Beaver Creek. You can zip up the Bachelor Gulch express lift and the vast majority of Beaver Creek Mountain is at your beck and call.
This hotel has it all. A beautiful outdoor pool complex with hot tubs galore—all heated for your winter outdoor swimming pleasure. The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch also houses the outstanding 21,000 sq. foot Bachelor Gulch Spa. The hotel has a fantastic bonfire area complete with complimentary hot chocolate and smores . The Ritz even has a ski valet to assist guests with the daily hassle of handling ski equipment. The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch also has great restaurants, a wonderful lobby and cozy rooms.
How to Score a Deal at the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch
All of this luxury comes at a steep price–$838 a night during ski season ($699 room rate, $50 resort fee and $89 in taxes) for the January 15-17, 2016, weekend (some ski season weekend rates were higher and some lower—I used the average). Add another $50 a day for valet or self-parking. We are talking big cash baby!!!
I stayed at the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch on a ski vacation with my kids a few years back—the place is great, the location is outstanding and the service is top notch. Traveldealalert.com can get you this fantastic place during the high season (Christmas break is blacked out) for as little as $325 a night with all taxes and fees included (you are on your own for parking). Just head over to Skyauction.com (preferably through a link on this site), set up an account and start the bidding at $275 a night (the minimum bid for the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch).
A couple words of caution about Skyauction: (a) pay attention to make sure there are no surcharges for your dates, (b) I don’t consider these “auctions” in the traditional sense–so don’t start bidding like a madman (feel free to bid things up a shekel or two just don’t go crazy) , (c) if you miss the current auction there should be another one just around the corner, and (d) I don’t really recommend using the “Autobid” feature on Skyauction—just seems every time I use that option my bid hits my Autobid upper limit. My guess is you won’t pay more than $350 a night including the $49 per night fee for taxes and services.
That’s what I call a deal people!!!!
