The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch Invites Visitors to Experience the Excitement of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships

This Luxury Hotel's Latest Package Offers Fun for the Entire Family

AVON, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - The temperatures are dropping and the snow is falling, but the excitement is steadily building as the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships draw near. Scheduled for February 2 to 15, this international ski competition will bring together more than 700 athletes representing upwards of 70 countries as they compete for top honors in Vail/Beaver Creek. And helping travelers to join in the fun is The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. This premier destination among Colorado mountain resorts is offering a new package that, combined with its enviable address, lets everyone soak up the glory of the championships.

Known as the Champions of the World Ski Package, the resort's promotion combines indulgent accommodations at one of the finest luxury hotels in Colorado with unparalleled access to the championships. Ensuring visitors are as professionally outfitted as the athletes they're watching; the package also includes ski rentals for two from Gorsuch, as well as two one-day lift tickets.

Additionally, the resort encourages guests to join the spectators on the slopes by providing a ski escort with transportation and guidance from the hotel's Chair 16 ski lift directly to the Beaver Creek Village. Upon arrival, guests can pop off their skis and settle in for a close up view of the exciting events. Rates for the package, which is available between February 2 and 14, 2015, start at $1,799 USD per night.

Whether travelers arrive to witness the skiing prowess of a favorite athlete, or to escape on a family vacation to Colorado, the championships feature an action-packed calendar of events. In addition to the races, visitors will discover concerts, films, art exhibits, world-class culinary events and more at three nearby destinations (Vail Village and Mountain, Avon and Beaver Creek Village and Mountain) every single day.

Just as the events are designed to appeal to the entire family, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch stands out among ski resorts near Vail, Colorado for its own distinctly family-friendly approach. The hotel includes lavish amenities like a year-round, heated outdoor pool designed to appeal to the pint-size set. Kids, for example, can "camp" in their hotel room with a teepee and a stuffed version of the hotel's resident canine, Bachelor. And experience-oriented adventures like family snowshoe hikes yield the sort of moments that can define a trip.

While 2015 will be the third time in more than 80 years that the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships enjoys the unparalleled powder of Vail/Beaver Creek, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is the only place to offer exceptional accommodations, ski-in/ski-out access to Beaver Creek Mountain and a package that creatively integrates the guest experience with the championships.
