We love ourselves a good minibar! There's something so decadent about eating cashews and snacking on a chocolate bar while wearing the hotel robe. While we've heard of minibars with, um, personal items, the Osprey at Beaver Creek is our first experience with a minibar that features such beauty essentials as a Suki Balancing Mini Skincare kit, a cooling eye gel mask, a mani kit with OPI polish and Tru2 Oxygen, in addition to the usual snacks and treats.
Of course the minibar is just a small reason to visit the Osprey. The hotel opened last December after a a $7 million facelift (it was formerly the Inn at Beaver Creek) and is the closest resort to a ski lift in North America. It features ski in/ski out access to the slopes, an outdoor heated pool, a fire pit and sauna and steam rooms. The hotel is eco-friendly and was designed with locally sourced stone, indigenous metals and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood.
The Osprey is offering three nights for the price of two this season. The Three for Free program also gets you a $50 RockResorts gift card, on-mountain cash or dining card and a helmet camcorder. For more information, check out the Osprey's website.
