The resort is widely regarded as one of the premier ski resorts in the country.

Beaver Creek Communications representative Jen Brown joined 9NEWS via "Skype" to talk about the upcoming season and what people can expect as they move deeper into the winter season.

"Good morning, it's cold and crispy up here. Skier's paradise. We are ready to go at 9 a.m. It's incredibly beautiful up here," Brown said.

Brown talked about her expectations for the day.

"We are making snow this morning. It's a great snow surface ... 101 acres open today. Three major lifts, and we are looking forward to an excellent day," Brown said.

Brown also talked about special deals for those looking to do some skiing.

"Well now is definitely the time to come up here. We've got some great lodging deals, 40 percent off, and we've got a couple fantastic events. We kick off with a cookie competition [Wednesday] afternoon followed by a holiday tree gliding this Friday and then our annual Birds of Prey World Cup next week," Brown said. "The downhill starts on Friday followed by the 'Super G' Saturday and the men's 'Giant Slalom' on Sunday."

Brown talked about how the thanksgiving holiday may affect the weekend festivities.

"With the major holiday weekend coming up, we definitely are seeing lots of folks out and about. The restaurants are full, the retail shops are busy, we are ready to go," Brown said.
