Birds of Prey course gets nod from International Ski Federation

November 23, 2019, 9:26 am

It’s official: the International Ski Federation has given the green light to go ahead with the Xfinity Birds of Prey Audi FIS Ski World Cup scheduled for December 6-8 in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Vail Resorts’ Greg Johnson and Ron Rupert.

It’s part of the process for every Audi FIS Ski World Cup that they must pass a “snow control” ahead of the races to ensure course quality.

Beaver Creek has received 10 inches of snow in the past 48 hours, and the Xfinity Birds of Prey racecourse is covered in snow top to bottom.

“It’s looking beautiful up there thanks to Mother Nature and hard work from the Beaver Creek Mountain team,” said Sarah Franke, VP of Operations and Marketing for the nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation, which organizes the event each year. “We look forward to welcoming the ski racing world to our community again for the Xfinity Birds of Prey and all the surrounding festivities.”

Xfinity Birds of Prey Race Schedule

Dec. 6   Super G            10:45 a.m.

Dec. 7   Downhill            11 a.m.

Dec. 8   Giant Slalom      9:45 a.m.

Beaver Creek Village will come alive with a jam-packed weekend of events including a welcome party, a silent disco presented by TIAA Bank, the always-delightful Beers of Prey beer tasting presented by Ballast Point, live music, Warren Miller movie screenings and more. Events will take place in Beaver Creek Village, Thursday, Dec. 5 – Sunday, Dec. 8. See the full schedule of events at bcworldcup.com.
