The Inn at Riverwalk is proud to present a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime experience this December 26th called Ski with Tess. What is it? A chance to ski with an Olympic mogul skier!
If you’re a competitive skiing fan who isn’t familiar with The Inn’s Resident Athlete, Tess Johnson, you will be soon! Tess was born and raised in the Vail Valley and was named to the U.S. Olympic ski team at just 14 years old. A mogul skier, Tess went to the 2018 Olympics and won her first World Cup at 17 years old, and she’s just getting started.
This young woman has immense passion for all she does in life. You could say she keeps busy training almost year-round to get ready for competitions, volunteering with local organizations such as Girl PowerHER Youth 365, and spending time with The Inn at Riverwalk guests when she’s in town.
Tess and The Inn have hosted some awesome events in the past but Ski with Tess is sure to be our best yet. Who wouldn’t want to spend the day getting pointers and having a blast with an Olympic skier on Beaver Creek Mountain?

Optional transportation is provided via the hotel shuttle. You can also meet us at the mountain at the scheduled session start time.

If you want to keep skiing or head to apres after your session, you are welcome to stay in Beaver Creek Village rather than take the shuttle back to the hotel.
