***2016 races cancelled***

The Vail Valley Foundation announced Nov. 17, 2016 that the FIS Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Downhill, Super G, and Giant Slalom races scheduled for Dec. 2-4, 2016 have been cancelled, due to an unfavorable result of the International Ski Federation snow control.

A recent shift in weather patterns has brought snow and colder temperatures to Beaver Creek Resort and the Vail Valley. However, winter conditions did not arrive in time to allow race crews to create the demanding, 8,600-foot-long Birds of Prey courses.

The EverBank America’s Winter Opening festival, including concerts from Strange Americans on Dec. 1, Bonfire dub and Beers of Prey beer tasting on Dec. 2, and a showing of Red Bull Media House’s new film The Fourth Phase on Dec. 3, are still scheduled to occur at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek

We look forward to the races in 2017.
