Birds of Prey World Cup race week has always been good to the U.S. Ski Team’s Ted Ligety. The Giant Slalom phenomenon has won six times in the past seven years on the course, making him one of the winningest racers ever at the famed Beaver Creek venue.
“Beaver Creek and the Talon Crew have always done an amazing job preparing the track for us, and it’s been a place where I’ve had a good amount of success, too,” Ligety said. “It’s an arcer’s hill, so you have to be really clean on the edge the entire way down. We spend most of our season skiing in Europe, so being able to ski on home snow again at Birds of Prey in front of family and friends will be huge for us as we kick off this big Olympic year.”
