The Crystal Grotto At Beaver Creek

The Crystal Grotto at Beaver Creek, Colorado is North America's only amphitheater made entirely of ice.

The Crystal Grotto at Beaver Creek, new this winter, is North America's only amphitheater - made entirely of ice!

At the Crystal Grotto, you can listen to the band play your favorite songs on instruments made of ice, such as guitars, bass, drums and even a xylophone. The inside of the Grotto resembles an igloo, with cave-like walls, floors and seats constructed of ice. Pads are available to sit on so you don't get too cold! The Crystal Grotto seats 150 people and is located near the Spruce Saddle Restaurant, at the top of Centennial Express Chair Lift (Chair 6).

Performances are held from 1 to 3pm on Saturdays, Sundays and select Fridays throughout the winter. Tickets are available at the information kiosk next to the Beaver Creek ice skating rink from noon on Monday unti 11:30am on Friday each week. The kiosk accepts cash only. Beginning at noon on Friday, tickets are only available on the mountain.

The Ice Bar is open from noon to 3pm on show days and you can purchase tickets during that time as well (cash only). If you still haven't been able to find time to purchase a ticket, you can find them at The Watering Hole inside Spruce Saddle. There you will be able to use a credit card or a resort charge to purchase your tickets.
