BEYOND THE SPRINGS

Hike To The Mic


Jennifer Mulson

Featuring Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Elephant Revival and others, Friday through Sunday, Elvis Costello and Elephant Revival concert is 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Beaver Creek Mountain and Beaver Creek Village, Beaver Creek. $65, VIP $300; 970-754-0020. beavercreek.com

When the folks at Beaver Creek realized they hadn’t had a new fall festival in a decade, they got to work.
The inaugural Hike to the Mic is a three-day event featuring performances by Grammy Award-winning punk and rock band Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Nederland folk and Americana group Elephant Revival and funk band The Main Squeeze from Chicago.

“It’s a beautiful time of year around here said Stacie Mesuda, a spokeswoman for Beaver Creek Resort. “The aspens are turning that deep golden yellow. How much more Colorado can you get?"

Most of the concerts are on Beaver Creek Mountain, so folks have four options to get to the top: hike, bike, take a 4x4 jeep tour or ride the Centennial Express Gondola.

Hikers can bust a move up the 4-mile, moderate Overlook Trail and expect it to take up to 2¾ hours. Beaver Creek’s signature trail is considered moderate, with an elevation gain of 1,200 feet, and travels through a large aspen grove that should be vibrant by the time of the festival.

“You’re earning your tunes up there:" said Mesuda.

Bikers can pedal up the 4-mile mountain road Cinch Trail. For those who prefer a more relaxed trip, jeep tours are available, as well as an eight-minute gondola ride, included in the ticket price.

The party doesn’t stop after the music on the mountain ends. Plenty of activities in Beaver Creek Village will continue on into the evening, including more music, art, free fitness classes, chainsaw-carving demonstrations, guided hikes and food.
