BEAVER CREEK, Colorado – Southern Ute-Navajo elders Eddie and Betty Box Jr. along with their dancers will open Vail’s World Cup downhill event with a blessing ceremony at the finish line of Beaver Creek’s Bird of Prey run at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy is hosting the group.

“Our Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy is so proud to be hosting the Native dancers, who have become part of our Vail family, to launch elders-led ceremonies in communities around the world, to create more harmony with nature leading up to the U.N’s International Mother Earth Day, April 22, 2011,” said Geoff Grimmer, headmaster of the academy.
