Dear BCPOA Members:
It was been a beautiful and busy Summer and Fall in Beaver Creek. Unfortunately, we have had a dry Fall and snow cover is sparse except for the The Birds of Prey course. After inspecting the course, FIS officials have sanctioned the races which will take place December 1, 2 and 3. Visit www.bcworldcup.com for the most up-to-date information and schedules.
As always, there’s a lot going on in our community.
Beaver Creek and Vail Mountain are open for skiing, each with about 65 ski-able acres. For up to the minute information on snow conditions, weather information, Eagle County Airport flight status, road conditions, etc visit www.bcpoa.com and follow the appropriate links.
The newly installed Red Buffalo Express (Chair 5) will provide additional high speed access to the top of the the mountain. This high speed, detachable quad reduces ride time to 4.3 minutes from 8.6 minutes and increases up hill capacity by 75%. Chair 5 is expected to open early December dependent upon weather and snow conditions.
Cleverly enough, Chair 5 will access the newly created Red Buffalo Park, located at the highest point of the mountain; 11,440 feet. Red Buffalo Park is all about more family time and focuses on beginning and intermediate skiers and riders.
Now is a good time to load the upgraded Village Transportation app on your smartphone so that you can follow the up-to-the-minute status of all fixed routes buses. Go to either the App Store or Google Play and download Beaver Creek Village Transportation Shuttle Tracker.
With input from the BCPOA, the BCRC has updated regulations for Single Family/Duplex Design, Construction Activities and Compliance Deposit, and Business Licenses. Each is a substantial improvement and reflect how Beaver Creek and its property owners live and work today. Visit the BCRC website to review the current regulations.
Be careful with those new toys. Effective July 1, 2016, drones are allowed only above the operator’s private property and may not fly over Forest Service land, Beaver Creek Village, Beaver Creek Golf Club, or neighboring private property without a permit. Please refer to the complete Drone Policy at www.beavercreekresortcompany.com or call the Beaver Creek Company at 970-845-5971 for more information.

BCPOA Social Activities
BCPOA’s annual Summer Picnic – 2017 was a great success with record attendance and excellent food provided by the Park Hyatt.

BC Metro District News
The Metro District is under contract to sell the old firehouse property. The buyer is proposing four units to be developed between 5,700 and 6,400 sq. ft. each. The architectural design and site plan is currently under DRB review process. Closing date on the property is on or before January 31, 2018. The sales price of $10 million will more than cover the total construction costs of the new fire station station and site improvements.
For 2018, the Metro District plans to overlay Village Road, Borders Road and the Recreation Path along Village Road. The projects will be scheduled in May and June to be completed prior to July 4. Traffic control will be in place to keep delays to a minimum.
The District has worked with Vail Resorts on new transportation agreements that are more aligned with the service level expectations and accountability for both sides. We believe that the service guidelines are much more clearly defined and that Vail Resorts is committed to a high service standard.
Mountain lions and bears continue to be active in our community. Be mindful when pets, children or grandchildren are outdoors. Officials remind people to be vigilant at all times and become educated about these potential predators. First and foremost in coexisting with wildlife, DO NOT LEAVE FOOD OUT TO FEED THEM. It will draw a crowd, some unwanted. If you do have a sighting, find evidence of their presence or have other concerns, notify Colorado Division of Wildlife officials at (970) 947-2920 and inform BC Public Safety at (970) 949-4911. For more information about mountain lions, visit www.cpw.state.co.us/documents/education/livingwithwildlife/livingwithlions.pdf.
BCPOA Financial Health
BCPOA’s finances continue to remain very strong with total assets of $926K in cash and other short term investments. Of that amount, $687K is held in the BCPOA Legal Reserve. It is projected that our goal of a $750,000 Legal Reserve will be attained by the end of 2018.
Very best regards,
Dave Eickholt Larry Graveel Jim Fraser
