You'll Never Find a Community Like This

Bachelor Gulch is not like any other community, anywhere!  It is an exclusive on-mountain gated neighborhood offering ski-in/ski-out access from most homes.  No matter what type of property you own, chances are you can ski from your main door.

This is why Bachelor Gulch is known for this following saying:

“Many live near the mountains

 Some live in the mountains

 Few will ever live on the mountain”

European-Style Village-to-Village Skiing

Bachelor Gulch has an interesting history. Its name is derived from a small group of bachelors who originally inhabited this area about a century ago. These pioneers were drawn to this area because of its peaceful seclusion and incredible views! Their favorite mode of transportation during the winter was skiing. The 'second wave' of developers have embraced this concept and combined it with European-style Village-to-Village skiing.

Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead are connected via chairlifts and ski runs. However, this wasn’t always the case.

Bachelor Gulch is a relatively new developed area. Due to the topography between Beaver Creek and Arrowhead, Bachelor Gulch would not exist unless the two owners of both areas were in agreement. For many years, it was speculated that his fabulous area would be developed. It took until the mid '90s until the agreement was reached. I think you will have to concur, it was worth the wait!

Resort Living Right Outside Your Door

The focal point of Bachelor Gulch is the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. Not only does it offer an upscale environment but it is where the chairlift begins. This is also where guests of the Ritz, The Ritz Club and members of the Bachelor Gulch Club enjoy a luxury spa, outdoor pool, outdoor fire pit, and a comfortable large area to listen to music while enjoying your favorite drink.

Guests or visitors can make a reservation at the renowned Wolfgang Puck restaurant, Spago or dine at one of the other casual dining restaurant and bars.

It is important to know that Bachelor Gulch does not offer parking or allow access for public skiing. Only residents and guests of Bachelor Gulch, including the Ritz, may start their morning from this chairlift. Everyone else will ski from either Beaver Creek or Arrowhead. Once you ski to the Ritz, then you can enjoy lunch or après ski cocktails in this breathtaking environment. This is an experience you certainly want to include as one of your days in the Vail Valley!

Treat Yourself — You've Earned It!

The Bachelor Gulch Club within the Ritz-Carlton features 19 treatment rooms, a vast array of activities, benefits and fitness and wellness services. This luxurious spa and skier day lodge opened in 2002. The lobby of the hotel is adjacent to the Bachelor Gulch Express Lift so every guest and resident will enjoy ski-in/ski-out convenience.
