Bib presentation, concert is Tuesday in Beaver Creek
Vail, CO Colorado
BEAVER CREEK, Colorado – Lindsey Vonn, Julia Mancuso and the World Cup ladies’ tour makes an historic stop in Beaver Creek for the transplanted Val d’Isere super-G on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
The Vail Valley Foundation and Beaver Creek Resort Co. will host a special free super-G public bib presentation and concert Tuesday at McCoy’s.
Scheduled to get under way at 5:30 p.m. with free cookies and cocoa, the super-G bib presentation for Wednesday’s race is slated for 6 p.m. before turning the evening over to Hell’s Belles, the all-girl AC/DC tribute band. Door prizes will be given away, including a Beaver Creek $500 shopping spree and a Vail Resorts Epic Pass.
Wednesday’s race will mark the first time that the World Cup women will have the opportunity to race on the Birds of Prey course. The last time the ladies raced in Vail or Beaver Creek was during the 1999 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
Designed by Swiss Olympian Bernhard Russi, Birds of Prey celebrated its coming out party in December of 1997. Since then, only Men’s World Cup races have been contested on the renowned race course.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
McCoy’s has a capacity of 400 people, so plan on getting there early to ensure a space for the bib presentation and the free concert.
In addition to Wednesday’s women’s super-G, the transplanted races will include men’s giant slalom today and men’s slalom on Thursday.
