More Audi Birds of Prey World Cup updates today. We are 11 days out from the first racer kicking out of the start gate for downhill training.
According to Chief of Course Greg Johnson, we are about 85% done with snowmaking. Perhaps the best year-to-date effort ever for the Birds of Prey. Dozing will be complete to the Pumphouse by the end of the weekend. Currently Race Crews are dozing from the Golden Eagle Jump through the Finish, and work will begin between The Pumphouse and Golden Eagle Jump today. We anticipate 98% of the course to be complete with snowmaking by the end of the weekend. A special thanks goes out to the entire Beaver Creek Race Crew for their hard work. Without this exceptional group the Birds of Prey would not be regarded as one of the top courses in the world.
Lower down on the course crews have begun installation of phone and IT systems for the press center and office trailers for TV crews and banner storage have been moved into position. Construction on the Finish Stadium including bleachers and tents should begin this weekend.
Join us in Beaver Creek December 4-6 for the 2009 Audi Birds of Prey. The event is free and open to the public and complete event details can be found HERE.
