As you may have heard, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting the canceled Val d'Isere races here at Beaver Creek - we're calling them the Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Race Week Part Deaux. Most notable is the fact that this will be the first time EVER women have raced on the Birds of Prey course. Lindsey Vonn, who slipped the course in the 1999 World Alpine Ski Championships, is most excited about this race. We hope you all will be there, it is going to be quite the historical moment!
From the lady herself:
“I am so excited, it's going to be an awesome, awesome race. I've always been jealous of the men, they get to always race World Cups in Beaver Creek and this will be my first World Cup in my hometown, so I'm really excited. I hope to see all my friends and family out there and I'm excited to try to ski well for the home crowd.”
