I'm back for episode #3. Parts 1 & 2, both on Vail, can be found here, and here. This week, I figured I would share the EpicMix pins you can achieve at Beaver Creek. Beaver Creek was by far the easiest to earn all of the pins that I found, and someone who is a beginner shouldn't have any issues doing the steps required. I would say the trickiest
pin for a beginner would be the Bird Bath pin, but it is doable. For beginner access to the bottom of the Birds of Prey Express after riding the Drink of Water lift, take your favorite run back down to Spruce Saddle, then take Cinch past Bridle, and then traverse across onto Dally, which will drop you off at the bottom of the Birds of Prey Express, an easy green the whole way.
While earning the Bachelor pin, be sure to make at least one run down Sawbuck. This is by far my favorite groomer at Beaver Creek. I just love doing some quick GS turns down Sawbuck when I visit.
I wasn't able to find a pin for skiing or riding during the Birds of Prey World Cup, but I suspect there is one out there. Here are the pins that I found at Beaver Creek.
