Passing through the rocky slabs that mark the entrance to Beaver Creek ski resort signifies you’re entering a special place, and Beaver Creek is undeniably distinct. Once you’ve left behind the bustle of Colorado’s main thoroughfare of the Rockies—I-70—and passed through Beaver Creek’s natural gateway, you’ll be greeted by an overall top-shelf atmosphere, complete with picture-perfect ski runs and a quaint, but polished Bavarian-style village. The hotels are lavish, foodies love the restaurants and the skiing is immaculate.
Two weeks ago, Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job hire, Jackson Lebsack checked Beaver Creek off his Epic Pass world tour.

Now living in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com as Director of SEO + Content, I've been able to combine a litany of skills, passions and interests. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
